nextbike Bike Sharing on the Rydies Platform


Dear Companists,

We are pleased to inform you that all nextbike bikes in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland are now integrated into the Rydies platform. The market for mobility data is becoming increasingly dynamic. Rydies presented at the mFUND of the Federal Ministry of Transport, and in the USA the Google Spinoff Coord starts as a mobility data servive provider.


Germany's largest Bikesharing provider nextbike is now on the Rydies platform

All available bike sharing bikes in more than 60 German cities are displayed online, either at nextbike itself or via the local provider, e.g. KVB Rad (Kölner Verkehrsbetriebe). nextbike, with its high-quality and service-oriented rental system, is an important addition to the Rydies platform in order to completely cover connectivity and everyday mobility with bicycles.

BMVI Conference “Data as the motor for mobility 4.0”

This was the title and core topic of the mFUND conference organized by the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure in Berlin in mid-October, where Rydies presented its solutions. In his opening speech, Transport Minister Scheurer underscored the need for a change in transportation. Data forms an important basis for new and efficient mobility concepts such as on-demand shuttles and logistical offers with freight bikes - i.e. intermodal, easily-accessible offers as a real alternative to the car. Naturally, innovative traffic management and planning would be inconceivable without "Big Data."

Problems such as insufficient digitalization and the large number of asynchronous data formats, which clearly hinder integration and must be solved to achieve optimal connectivity, were also discussed. Rydies presented its services in the "Digitalized Bicycle Data" forum and discussed them in the panel.


Mobility Data Startup “Coord” Launches as Google-Spinoff

The Rydies business model is establishing itself among major players in the industry. Coord is a new provider on the market that has emerged as a spin-off from Alphabet/Google. Similar to Rydies, Coord digitalized analog data (parking regulations for cars) and aggregated offers via APIs (toll routes, selected car and bike sharing companies) for the first time. Coord offers its services as "data broker" to cities and mobility companies for a fee "... (to) build a bridge between the private and public sector."

Rydies welcomes the increased attention for B2B data marketplaces and is well prepared for this and other competitors. Rydies considers the entry of Coord / Google as a confirmation of its own strategic and technological orientation and feels encouraged to pursue further rapid growth.



You can find the detailed background report including a market overview of the significance of mobility data here and in the online and print version of the Companisto DealLights in mid-November.


Best greetings,

Investments in startups and growth companies offer great opportunities, but they are risk investments. In the worst case, the entire investment amount may be lost. Consequently, investments in startups or growth companies are unsuitable for retirement plans. However, there is no obligation to make further contributions. Investors can minimize their risk by diversifying the amount they invest in startups and growth companies and not investing the entire amount in one startup or growth company. Professional investors often follow this strategy because it causes the risk to be distributed among several investments. In this way, successful investments can balance other less successful investments.

The shares of the investors on Companisto are subordinated profit-participating loans (partiarische Nachrangdarlehen). Such loans are shares in a business with similar characteristics as equity. If the company becomes insolvent or is liquidated, the claims of the investors (Companists) – just like those of all other shareholders of the company – will be satisfied from the assets in the insolvency or the assets in liquidation only after the claims of all other external creditors have been satisfied. Thus, Companists are treated like any other shareholder of the company during insolvency or liquidation proceedings.

The company information published on the Companisto website is provided solely by the companies. The projections made by the companies do not guarantee successful development of the company in the future. Consequently, investments in startups and growth companies are suitable only for those investors who can cope with the risk of a total loss of the capital invested. Investors make their own independent investment decisions and bear all risks themselves.

The investments are provided and issued by the individual companies. Companisto is neither the provider nor the issuer of the investments, but solely the internet service platform.
