In a market that has seen more than 36 million new shared bikes, scooters and mopeds hit the road, Hello Llama’s technology is small, nimble and cost-effective for operators. The company’s hardware can be fully integrated during the design and production phase, but is also hardware-agnostic, allowing it to be matched with current assets already deployed to deliver secure, cost-effective, and highly functional systems. .
EFO Ventures, the seed investor and incubator of Hello Llama, works directly with companies in the mobility, sustainability and technology services sectors, investing both financially and through development. and dedicated support.
