NowWeRide.com

website | twitter | facebook

NowWeRide is changing the face of urban cycling. Our mobile app and website allow cyclists to find a posse to ride with, no matter where they’re going. This means riders can find safety in numbers, access a huge community of fellow cyclists, and have a lot more fun living the two-wheel lifestyle.

NowWeRide also offers Rides for Good, bringing riders to a different non-profit every week-end for an hour of volunteering. And we will also organize regular Pedal Parties, sponsored by local bars and entertainment venues, to bring people together for safe night riding and partying.

Beyond making urban cycling fearless and fun, we also offer a way for small, local businesses, the famed engine of America’s recovery, to precisely target those affluent customers who commute close to them. We offer them flexible sponsorship options, and thanks to our app-based tracking, they can even use our innovative PPCustomer model, paying only for new customers who actually walk in the door. This risk-free system is what small businesses need.

Our ultimate goal is to make urban cycling safer so that thousands of new riders can join us. We work for a triple bottom line: Happier people, a healthier planet, and a healthy profit.

 

H2lo.co

website  | twitter

Our premise is that individual homeowners are willing and able to save water and money if equipped with an easy solution.  We performed customer validation at a number of home improvement and gardening stores where the vast majority of folks said they’d be willing to pay around $50 for a hardware/software solution that would help them save money and water.  Our ideal sales channel would be directly through Denver Water because they already have an $8.4 million budget for water conservation in 2012.
