About the journey
This adventure began on February 4, 2022. The main goal was to raise awareness among the youth to be JOB CREATORS rather than JOB SEEKERS.
We'll also be applying for a Guinness World Record as we surpassed the current record of 12,379 km which is the longest ride on an electric motorcycle (our distance: 13,510 km).
Alongside our core purpose, the key motivation for picking an electric motorbike was to raise awareness about sustainability and the environment.
We're driving the change.
When we talk about the EV ecosystem, the first thing that comes to our mind is anxiety.
The first thing is 'range.' What is the range on my electric vehicle? The second is performance. Orxa Energies answers these through their EV motorcycle, the Mantis.
The next is 'charging infrastructure.' Do we have it in cities? What is the frequency? Charzer is taking care of this anxiety by installing charging points at Kirana stores, making charging points available everywhere in India.
The last is 'servicing.' People think electric vehicles do not require servicing like petrol and diesel vehicles. Ask this from Spare It. They have worked on 500+ motorcycles and service them every month.
Together, we built this EV ecosystem.
We believe everybody has an entrepreneurial mindset. Students will get into it sooner than later with the right push and nudge. And that is why we encouraged students to be job creators. The mentors at Brigade REAP, John Kuruvilla, and Gautam Khot, and other collaborators of StartupnRev guided the students to kick-start their entrepreneurial journey.
We established road safety by fixing 1000 potholes throughout the journey. PotHoleRaja is a pioneer in this field. They take care of three main pillars:
sustainability, in terms of the materials used to fill potholes.
recycling plastic waste to build roads that will never develop potholes (Gridmats).
encouraging participation to engage citizens in promoting road safety in their neighbourhood.
A #MadeinIndia Startups Initiative.
A bunch of ambitious teams came together to bring sustainability as a route of encouraging entrepreneurs of the future, viz., college students.
