Noting that sales of electric bicycles have skyrocketed in the West and Asia over the last couple of years, they spotted the opportunity to bring the e-bike to Kenya. Since the beginning of this year the Hatua team has been working on a product/service combination to bring e-bikes to the East-African market. They are in the early stage and setting up the first pilots to start this summer. Within Hatua Isidoor has the lead on product and digital development.
