The Scooterson story
In 1998, the 27-year-old Mihnea Chis started the first Internet Service Provider in his hometown. He exited the company a few years later to pursue a creative career as a film director for the next 15 years, under the artistic alias Mihnea de Vries. After this foray into film, he returned to the tech space with his second tech start-up KopterX, which built custom high-end cinematography drones.
In 2015, using his experience as a drone builder, Mihnea developed a prototype electric scooter. After seeing "wow" reactions on the street, he soon realized that electric scooters were the next big thing in urban mobility, and went on to start the Scooterson project in 2016.
Deepansh Jain is a serial entrepreneur from India. In 2011, while studying at India’s premier engineering college, he founded his first startup Juvenis, which was acquired within two years of inception for half a million dollars. He then co-founded Shifu App, an AI-powered, context-aware personal assistant application, whose investors included Google executives. Shifu App was acquired by the leading Indian mobile wallet and e-commerce company, Paytm/Alibaba, in January 2016.
After exiting his second company, Deepansh traveled the world to speak at tech events, where he talked about how he incorporated AI algorithms into Shifu App. Mihnea approached him after an event in Budapest to discuss how AI algorithms could be implemented into smart electric scooters. A few days later, Deepansh joined Scooterson to implement A.I. optimizations and further the mission to create the best user experience on two-wheels.
