The team

Superpedestrian brings together a team of extraordinary people for one vision: transforming micromobility worldwide. Shared micromobility - fleets of scooters, bicycles, and e-bikes - is the future of global transportation. As the industry evolves, operators and riders are demanding safer, more reliable, cost-effective solutions. At Superpedestrian, we develop new technologies to revolutionize and scale micromobility.

Founded out of the MIT Senseable City Lab and backed by leading venture investors General Catalyst and Spark Capital, Superpedestrian’s first product was the Copenhagen Wheel - an award-winning consumer e-bike product. In 2019, Superpedestrian launched the world's first smart scooter designed and engineered for shared mobility. Our vehicles are deployed around the world and we’re rapidly scaling our team and vehicle deployments. Join us as we revolutionize personal transit for a sustainable future.
