Description

The German SME developed an electrical drive for bicycles and is now producing and selling it since 2015 to 13 European countries and to Canada for retrofitting of conventional bicycles. The innovative electric drive is maintenance-free, very robust and usable on different kinds of bicycles without the need of adaptions of the bicycle. The company has short delivery times for small as well as for higher quantities always at the same high level of quality. As the drive is widely independent of the kind of the bicycles it can be used as a component by a bicycle manufacturer to extend its product line of conventional bicycles into e-bikes. The company offers the drive to bicycle manufacturers to upgrade its production to e-bikes in a technical cooperation agreement.

How it works

  • Tell us about yourself
  • We’ll discuss with you
  • We put the right partners in touch

EEN help you find the right partner, rather than you going it alone.

Our role is to review and collate the most suitable submissions, and then send them to the client who posted the opportunity. We consult with you, and the client, to make the process professional and easy.

These are live opportunities. Your registration of interest on the site is just like a professional approach to a business at a networking event. To stand the best chance of success, make your submission really sing. Sell why the client who posted the opportunity should work with you. Excite them. Ask questions. Try and avoid copy and pasting words from elsewhere.

Once the client has chosen their partner, we'll introduce them over email and keep in touch with both parties to see how it's going. Sometimes things progress quickly. Sometimes because of changing priorities for either party, things progress slowly, but you never know - your next big business break could start right here.
