VVM Startup Accelerator alum Kevin and Nevin Murray, co-founders of better.bike, are very pleased to announce the success of their recent Kickstarter campaign! They raised over $20k and sold ten of their car-bike hybrid vehicles, made from plants. They have taken an additional five orders for the PEBL since then. Kevin and Nevin have been contacted by ABC Studios to (possibly) appear on a new television show for entrepreneurs, to be hosted be Steve Harvey, in the spring of 2017. They plan on shipping their first orders by December.
During the Startup Accelerator, Paul Silva, CIO of VVM, connected the better.bike team with John Garvey, of Garvey Associates, who was able to help them generate great local press and put together a media advisory, that made this Kickstarter such a success. Back in May, at the Accelerator Awards, better.bike connected with potential green energy awards from MA. As they say at VVM,” it’s not just about the money, it’s about the connections.”
