2015/now β†’ Beyond

Founder & CEO β†’ Beyond is the result of mixing my desire to solve a big problem with my passion for motorcycles (micro-vehicles) and leveraging my expertise in product development. Here is some context πŸ‘‡

One-third of global emissions come from transportation. 60% of car trips are shorter than five miles - 247 billion trips a year in the US alone.

Suppose we could make those short trips in micro vehicles like e-bikes, scooters, etc. In that case, we could offset one gigaton of CO2 emissions, β†’ the equivalent of twice the annual emissions from the entire US commercial airline industry.

Beyond’s mission is to make it easier for people to choose micro-vehicles for those short trips.
