Movagain, is an electric handbike that adapts to wheelchairs turning them into an electric vehicle, allowing people with motor disabilities to move freely through the city from a point A to a point B without having to incur large expenses in transport such as taxis or Uber, or spending large amounts of time trying to use a public transport that is not adapted or designed for wheelchairs.

We will use the financing money to: 1. Production of the first 35 prototypes for the Pilot. 2. Development of the app (android / ios) that will be connected to the electric unicycle. 3. Expenses of campaign of launching, communication and marketing of the Pilot. 4. Operating expenses of the Pilot stage.

Describe how you would pilot your idea (1000 characters)

Produce the first 35 prototypes that will be released in the Pilot stage for testing and mapping routes and areas with a greater influx of disabled people and / or wheelchair users. In addition to finishing and starting with tests in the app already in the field, measuring the unicycles, and new users. Similarly, and in parallel, we would start with a strong awareness campaign with visual audio content for people with wheelchairs, and awareness of the problem we are solving in Austin.

Describe how you would measure the success of your pilot (1000 characters)

Part of the success metrics that we will be following very closely in the Pilot stage is: 1. # of pre-sales generated to acquire an electric handbikes in a 2nd stage. 2. # of new users enrolled in the app. 3. # of new routes generated in the app. 4. # of closed B2B leads.

Sustainability Plan (500 characters)

After finishing the Pilot stage, we will start with deliveries of pre-sales handbikes made during the Pilot stage, and we will begin online sales formally. In an independent and parallel way, we will begin to work the B2B with companies that have employees with motor disabilities, and try to start monetizing the data generated from the app.
