This growth financing will be used to develop a new product that should appeal to an even larger target group. This product is aimed to be on the market at the end of next year. The company previously launched Scoozy C as a modern, safe and all-road alternative to the mobility scooter.
Scoozy’s mission is to help people with reduced mobility in this new mobility phase in their lives. The company does this by combining the functionalities of a helping aid with the user experience, design and safety of modern means of transport. The company taps into the trends of an increasing aging population and the growing micro-mobility market by creating inclusive micro-mobility solutions.
Making more possible
Both existing shareholders and new investors participated in this financing round, including a foreign producer well-known in this market. “We are proud and grateful for this confirmation of confidence in our company. This significant investment supports the growth of the company and the development of a new product that demonstrates what Scoozy stands for – quality, safety and innovation,” says Job van de Kieft, founder and CEO of Scoozy.
The new product will have a steering wheel instead of a joystick and will be more affordable. This way the company wants to make Scoozy more accessible to even more users and let them experience the unparalleled feeling of freedom and safety that Scoozy offers. “We go beyond the functionality that a conventional mobility aid offers,” says Job van de Kieft. “We don’t just want to transport people from A to B. We want to enable a world of discovery and adventure.”
Scoozy was founded in 2016 by Job van de Kieft (CEO) and Jan-Willem van Gent (CTO). The two share a passion for electric mobility and innovation. Their passion arose at the Nuon Solar Team, where they both became world champions in solar racing in Australia. Scoozy previously raised investments and won several prizes, including the Red Dot Design Award. Scoozy is active in 10 countries with their current product Scoozy C.
