Description

As a UK based SME, the company has developed a novel bicycle cover with many unique features and user benefits. The cover can be opened and deployed over the bicycle extremely quickly and can be removed and folded quickly to be stored compactly, before using again. The product has been designed to be manufactured in biofibre or recycled fabric materials in order to minimise any negative environmental impact, consistent with the positive advantages of cycling as a low carbon and sustainable mode of transport. The primary differentiator of the cycle cover range is to support user friendliness, as well as being rapid to deploy and remove, along with being compact for storage. In order to support the environmental and reduced carbon emission advantages of cycling in terms of a sustainable transport mode, another unique feature will be that they will be manufactured from sustainable or recycled materials. As such, the covers support a variety of use cases to further support increased cycling and reduce barriers to cycling. The UK company is looking to enter into a manufacturing contract with a European manufacturer already proven in the textile product manufacture, ideally with experience of manufacturing products with biofibre and / or recycled fabrics. This is a relatively low volume product for such an industry and quality of manufacture will be very important.

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.
