A (Bike) Ride to Success

by

nextbike_logo_kreis_weiß_auf_blauAbout a year ago, on June 8, Ante Gustin was pitching his idea about a public bike sharing system on the first edition of Startup Weekend Zagreb. It was a project he was working on since he was a student. Krešimir Dvorski joined his team, and they spent an exciting weekend working on their business plan. On Sunday, they went home with a winning prize. Ante and Krešimir are now business partners whose idea was transformed into Nextbike –the first public bike system in Croatia.

A great thing about bike sharing is that it allows flexibility for users – it not only saves them time, but it also has a huge positive effect on their health and physical condition. Moreover, it lowers the volume of CO2 emissions and negative effects of car traffic. These bikes have a specific and modern design and are equipped with everything you need. Want proof? Ante and Krešimir will present their bikes on Saturday, right after the lunch. This is a great opportunity for you to get some advice from these young entrepreneurs and have a sneak peak at one of the prizes of this edition of Startup Weekend Zagreb, as it will come to us courtesy of Nextbike!
