Q&A with Include Founder Ivan Mrvoš

Funderbeam’s David Musu sat down with Ivan Mrvoš from Include to discuss their latest funding round.

David and Ivan chat about the business in general and upcoming plans. In addition, Ivan was posed a question prior to the Q&A, which is detailed here;

What happened to Monna cycling bench orders and production? 

In November 2018 we have introduced the Monna cycling bench at the Smart City World Expo in Barcelona. We have designed a smart bench with features from Steora Standard and added several micromobility options – air compressor, hand tools and AC socket for charging e-bikes. Monna kicked off with growing sales results.

Already after the Expo, cities around Montreal ordered 12 benches that have been delivered in 2019. With the introduction of new redesigned Steora benches in November 2020, we have introduced Steora Cyclo. Steora Cyclo is an upgraded Monna bench. We have successfully packed all features from Monna in a regular-sized and looking street bench. Steora Cyclo also provides e-scooter charging connectors that are covering more than 90% of e-scooters on the market.

This way, users don’t need to have chargers with them to charge their e-scooters. In 2021, Steora Cyclo was the most selling Steora model compared to all three new Steora models. We are expecting the same trend in 2022.
