Jan Pecník, Founder
BikeFair enables every single person on the planet to trade, own and love a bicycle by removing all physical, psychological, informational and financial barriers. We are creating the first fair, fun and easy to use marketplace with bikes and related products services, effectively digitizing the industry. We provide an e- commerce outlet for bike shops and complete all-in-one service for individual sellers for no extra cost. All that dressed in a coat of bike shopping experience of the 21st century: verified non-stolen bikes with complete information only, professional support when choosing the right bike, simple cashless 3-step buy & sell process, complete support including delivery, insurance, or additional products, and a lot of great deals on verified bikes from both bike shops and individuals.
We're excited to have Grouport among the investors of this round for one main reason: the people behind it. Besides working with the down-to-earth yet enthusiastic and outstandingly helpful partners, we can't wait to join forces with the variety of experienced angels and connecting with the family of ambitious and innovative startups. We were looking for investors that will help us overcome any eventual obstacle and help us scale faster than we would without them, and we believe have found just that in Grouport.
Bikefair is built around a strong vision to enable every single person on the planet to trade, own and love a bicycle by removing all physical, psychological, informational and financial barriers. The team has already started to transform the vision into reality on Dutch market, where they have a solid track record. Being present in a "niche market" gives them the opportunity to truly understand the community and thus provide several services which are truly beneficial for their customers. These lead towards many revenue sources in the future. From the beginning we are impressed by the strong passion, drive and skills of the founder who is really able to make the vision come true.
