Social Impact

We recognize the challenges small businesses face in transporting goods and how it impacts food security. So we developed cargo bikes for affordable and sustainable transportation.
Over 45.1m Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) in Nigeria face transportation problems, and ThinkBikes offers a range of electric cargo bikes, including the Alpha and Cool Max models. These electric cargo bikes provide a sustainable and efficient mode of transportation for MSMEs, allowing them to overcome the challenges associated with traditional transportation methods. By utilizing electric cargo bikes, MSMEs can improve their transportation capabilities and overcome the limitations posed by congestion and lack of infrastructure.
With 50% of food produce lost annually, and ThinkBikes’ Cool Max model plays a crucial role. This refrigerated cargo bike ensures the preservation and freshness of food and produce throughout the transition period. By providing a reliable and eco-friendly solution for the transportation of perishable goods, ThinkBikes helps reduce food waste and losses. This, in turn, supports the local economy and ensures food accessibility for communities.
ThinkBikes’ electric cargo bikes utilize clean energy, significantly reducing carbon emissions and air pollution. By adopting electric-powered vehicles, ThinkBikes provides a sustainable and environmentally friendly transportation alternative. This not only improves air quality but also aligns with the global effort to combat climate change.
ThinkBikes’ electric cargo bikes offer an efficient solution for last-mile transportation. Our vehicles are designed to navigate through urban areas, allowing for easy access to congested city streets and narrow alleyways. This enables businesses to deliver goods and services directly to their customers, overcoming the challenges posed by inefficient last-mile transportation. By streamlining the delivery process, ThinkBikes contributes to the growth of local economies and enhances overall productivity.

Future Plans

ThinkBikes currently has a production capacity of 5 bikes per day and has generated $50,000 in sales revenue. There is potential for significant growth in Nigeria, with potential sales ramping up to 250,000 bikes. ThinkBikes has implemented a lease/PAYGo model in some communities, which could help to make the bikes more accessible to customers who may not be able to afford them upfront.
ThinkBikes is planning to raise a long-term capital of $1 million to fund expansion and growth.
The enterprise aims to mass-produce cargo bikes and hire more women and youths for product sales and marketing.
We plan to expand the lease/PAYGo model to 100 communities, which could help to increase accessibility to the bikes.
