VENNLE Vision



Problem

Transit networks require frequent and complex operational decision making, yet today most decisions are not informed by data.

  • Lack of data analytics and automation software in transit space;

  • Budget, time and technical capabilities make tech and data solutions prohibitive for most operators;

  • Transport networks become unreliable and less profitable.

Solution

A transit platform for transport operators and cities

Starting with Micromobility

Micromobility (bike and scooter sharing) requires high-frequency decision making to rebalance the network. Vennle's MVP analyses, automates and optimises micromobility services to direct vehicle redistribution.

The shared micromobility market in China, Europe and the United States could reach $300 to $500bn by 2030 (McKinsey).

Estimated size of micromobility market, by region, in 2030 $


The Larger Market:

Transportation Analytics

We’re starting with micromobility, bike and scooter sharing, as a means of demonstrating our capabilities in a high-growth market with ever increasing operational complexity - micromobility operators are in need of Vennle’s Transit Platform.

However, these challenges are common to all transport modes and so Vennle's grand plan is ‘go multimodal’. We will deliver Vennle’s AI software to other transit services, such as buses, taxis, car-sharing and other intra-city applications.

Business Model

Data Analytics Platform

  • Sold direct to transport operators and cities as a SaaS offering

  • Multimodal (bike-share, scooters, car-share, buses, taxis, metro…)

Multimodal Data

  • Delivering insights from our multimodal data to other industries - logistics, smart cities, infrastructure

  • Public and private sector customers

L-R: Jack Noble, Daniel Carbonell

Co-founders: Jack and Daniel

Jack and Dan worked together as Engineering students at The University of Edinburgh and met as leading committee members for the HYPED Hyperloop Team. Both have a strong knowledge of the future mobility industry, technical innovation and management, and have a fantastic network of mentors and specialist advisers.

Jack has a variety of experience in the transport sector. In 2017, he won The Telegraph STEM Awards for Innovation as chosen by McLaren having proposed an Autonomous Vehicle subscription model. Jack joined HYPED where he led the sponsorship efforts to raise £120k, plus £125k in-kind, for the SpaceX competition; there, Jack also performed research into Hyperloop airport integration and Mobility as a Service.

Dan gained experience at Cirrus Logic as a Software Engineering Intern before joining the HYPED team, where he was promoted to Technical Director within one year. Dan managed a team of 80 engineers and computer scientists to build a functioning Hyperloop Pod prototype for SpaceX’s competition to place 6th of 600 worldwide.
