We started this company in 2010 after making a prototype named Geetobee. Bad name, great idea! Importantly, we had people asking to buy it! With no financial backing, but with customers knocking on the door, we dived in. Swifty was born!
Since then, we have been building on our reputation for excellent scooter design, both in the 16-inch wheel form factor which we have perfected over the years and also in the SwiftyONE’s unique foldability. From humble beginnings, we now are a fully-fledged lifestyle brand, on a mission to inspire more people to swap short car journeys for sustainable mobility.
In the last 18 months, the market landscape has transformed due to the rapid evolution of technology. Light electric and connected vehicles are now a critical factor in the mobility of our future.
Luckily for you, we’ve already been working on a range of smart e-scooters and we’re crowdfunding in order to support the project and grow the brand.
Here is our campaign video that is live on Seedrs. This is an equity crowdfunding platform, meaning you can invest capital in exchange for shares in Swifty. Look out for exclusive investor perks!
For the last two years, we have been working on a range of connected and smart e-scooters. In our vision of the future, people will be able to move around cities freely, with minimal impact on the planet. By harnessing technology, we will be able to:
- supply scooter-share operators with a long-lasting, awesome product (public and private)
- collect data to validate and incentivise clean and active travel
- connect with the future ‘smart cities’
Swifty’s New Smart Technology
As you may know, we have been selling e-scooters for several years already, so what’s new? We are currently unable to disclose the details of the new design as we don’t want to disclose the IP in the public domain until it’s ready. However, there are more details in the Swifty Podcast Episode #4 where Jason outlines a few details of our new smart technology, electric motor and of course, safety!
Why Are We Crowdfunding?
Apart from being passionate about scooters, active travel and clean transportation, we are seeking investment because our industry is witnessing a significant shift and it’s crucial to innovate – innovate or die!
We’ve always been a company keen to stay at the forefront of the market and push the boundaries. This investment will give us the opportunity to fuel new innovation, expand our team, and ultimately allow our brand to expand and stay at the cutting edge of this exciting and rapidly evolving industry.

Don’t forget to check out the Swifty Carbon that we pre-launched at this year’s Eurobike and IAA Frankfurt Motor Show, and you are able to pre-order now. The unique folding kick-scooter promises to be the lightest of its kind in the world. Featuring a carbon-fibre foldable frame and hydraulic disk brakes front and rear, it certainly promises optimum speed and control. Tipping the scales at an estimated 6kg, and retailing at a cool £2499, we will be running pre-orders of this alongside our Seedrs campaign, with exclusive discounts available for investors.
