Rydies Participates in Light Electric Vehicles Project through Hubject


Dear Companists,

This week, we are reporting about 2 exciting new projects.


Light Electric Vehicles Project

Light Electric Vehicles (LEVs), e.g. e-micro scooters, scooters, cargo bikes, are increasingly hitting the roads and will become an indispensable part of the roadscape. Hubject, a joint venture of Daimler, BMW, Siemens, Bosch and others, is responsible for the ELVITEN project in Berlin. This project shows how LEVs can be used in cities and integrated into the existing transport network.

“With its mobility database and experience, Rydies is making an important contribution to developing recommendations for the integration of ELVs and corresponding business models,” says project manager Ricarda Mendy of Hubject. At the same time, Rydies receives relevant feedback from this project to expand its business and network.

The great success of Light Electric Vehicles has not yet been achieved in Germany. One of the reasons for this was the lack of road approval for micro scooters. This will be over as of spring 2019, when the German government will allow scooters. This opens the door for sharing providers in this segment to launch their services in Germany. For Rydies, the cooperation with Hubject opens up better access to this market and short-term expansion of the range of services.


Rydies starts pilot project in Dortmund

Rydies has been awarded the contract for a pilot project within the scope of a digitalization measure of the city of Dortmund, in which the complete bicycle path network and the bicycle parking facilities of the entire city area are to be digitally recorded. First, one part of the city will be digitalized in order to be able to agree on further details for a planned comprehensive recording in the coming year. The pilot project will start in January 2019 and will be extended to the entire city area in early summer 2019.

Rydies is proud to have received the order. Apart from Rydies, there is currently no other supplier in Germany that has the necessary software and experience in the digital recording and management of bicycle paths and parking facilities. The result will provide information about the structural and traffic conditions of the existing bicycle infrastructure.

Rydies has brought its cooperation partner Vaisala (Finland) on board in order to implement the technically demanding project.

Frank Ulrich, Geodata Management Coordinator at the Civil Engineering Office of the City of Dortmund: “We are pleased to receive meaningful and digital information about our cycling infrastructure. The aim is to use this information to make the city of Dortmund more bicycle-friendly and to promote more bicycle traffic.” Project manager Sven Mittelbach adds: “For Rydies, this is a further step towards completely digitizing and networking bicycle mobility and thus providing the city of Dortmund with the basis for future planning.”

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.
