Berlin-based e-bike and e-moped subscription startup Dance has reached a 10,000-member milestone, within its first year, across Paris, Berlin, Hamburg, Munich, and Vienna. With the successful growth comes a host of new investors in the firm. Financial details were not disclosed but stepping up to back the mobility enterprise are 4P Capital, Giovanni Domenichini (GDTRE), Carl Pei (Nothing), Alex Asseily (Jawbone, Lilium), Mads Fosselius (Dixa), Simon Hähnel (Andhim).
Adding to its dance card the startup also has a B2B section, offering its bikes and mopeds to companies who use them as part of their employee benefits scheme. It has secured partnerships with Urban Sports Club, Outfittery, About You, Niche Beauty, Hello Fresh, BeeToGreen, and Voodoo to date.
"We are very proud that we have achieved our next milestone. We started with a few hundred members in Berlin and have now grown to over ten thousand across Paris, Berlin, Hamburg, Munich, and Vienna, validating the demand for our sustainable mobility solutions and the power of subscriptions versus owning a vehicle. By continuously growing our movement, we are contributing to making cities more livable and making a significant contribution to fight climate change," says Dance founder and CEO, Eric Quidenus-Wahlforss.
