10 Feb Trade Show, Pitch Presentation & User Experience
As always, it’s been a busy week for the Linky team!
Linky in Munich
Cristiano went to the ISPO in Munich, Germany. It’s a big trade show for sports businesses and he was there to discuss sales partnerships. Of course, he had his Linky to move around town.
Pitch Sole 24 Ore
There was another big event for us this week! We gave a pitch presentation to raise capital in an important startup competition which is organized by Sole 24 Ore, well-known financial magazine. Even though the investors were not even within our target group, there was a lot of interest coming from them!
Next week there will be another pitch for Business Angels and VC from the United States.
Of course, we also worked on the technical side of Linky this week. Specifically, we were working on the folding mechanism. With just one movement, you can now block and unblock Linky in the straight position. This system is created in a way that the skateboard is fixed in the open position when you are riding, so if you’re a pro, you can use the kicktail to make sharp and narrow turns. Have a look at the video!
What to expect next?
- We’ll do more range testing with the new battery packs.
- We’ll test fast charging and temperature validation
- After the assembly of the latest prototype, we’ll get more feedback to work with.
- We’ll shoot some new videos of the riding mode user experience.
