George Kalligeros Wins April's Shell LiveWIRE Smarter Future Award!

Tue, 05 June 2018

George Kalligeros won April's Shell LiveWIRE Smarter Future Award for his business, Pushme Bikes

Business Description

Pushme Bikes are disrupting the on-demand delivery industry with quick electric bike conversion and battery swap stations. Self-employed delivery couriers convert their conventional bicycles to electric in under 5 minutes using Pushme Bike’s innovative device. Low battery alerts are sent directly to users’ smartphones, telling the rider to head to the nearest battery swap station (pushpod), located within local convenience stores, to switch their depleted battery for a fully charged one, a process that takes 10 seconds. Pushme Bike’s two products, a plug & play bicycle converter and a network of accessible pushpods, aim to tempt couriers away from petrol scooters and towards cleaner, equally efficient, transport options.
Commiserations to Dicky Davies (Crushed Protein), Haydn Kirkman (Airshare Transfers), Yanik Nyberg (Seawater Solutions) and Tom Vose (Enni) who were shortlisted but did not win this time and are encouraged to reapply.
