JIVE Bike started as a research project at UCL in late 2011. After months of exploring the possibilities of creating a vehicle that would address the needs of today’s cosmopolitans who commute across big cities, the team concluded that only chainless, electric bicycle ‘ticks all the boxes.’
With significant financial and business support from University College London, JIVE Bike grew from project into commercial enterprise in April 2012. Since then, JIVE Bike has won product and business awards proving the validity of concept and market, including Crowdcube’s Best Product Award, London Entrepreneurs’ Challenge 2011 and many others.
After constructing functional prototypes, JIVE Bike has moved into the current stage of project which is setting up manufacturing facilities in the Founder’s home town: Mielec, Poland.
