Bike-share start-up eBikeLabs chosen for co-acceleration programme

French-based technology start-up for e-bike sharing, eBikeLabs, has been selected by Allianz France to participate in the co-acceleration programme with Toyota Tsusho Europe.

The new co-acceleration programme is dedicated to working on new and urban mobility challenges in the e-bike mobility market, such as dockless bike-sharing schemes.

According to Allianz, eBikeLabs was chosen for its capability to make electric cycling safer, thanks to its unique smart motor controller that delivers enhanced and safe UX, ultimate anti-theft and 24/7 connected maintenance.

Sylvain Theveniaud, Managing Director for the Allianz Accelerator programme, said: “We are proud to have eBikeLabs on board for this first co-acceleration programme of the Allianz France Accelerator with Toyota Tsusho Europe that focuses on new mobility. It is a great opportunity for Allianz France to explore potential synergies in this space to improve safety and to provide new opportunities of development to eBikeLabs.”

The start-up aims to empower mobility operators with complete solutions to launch a dockless e-bike business and shared fleet that is secured, sustainable and profitable.

CEO and Founder of eBikeLabs, Mael Bosson, commented: “I’m very happy and proud of being part of the Accelerator together with Allianz France and Toyota Tsusho Europe. This is the perfect way to kick off a new year! The co-acceleration programme will help us to increase our boundaries and continue to move towards our goal to become key technological partner for dockless e-bike businesses.”
