Check goes Blijdorp Festival

In February 2020, Check launched with 160 shared scooters in Rotterdam. Since then it has expanded. Check offers more than 3,000 e-mopeds in Rotterdam, Amsterdam, the Hague, Breda, Groningen, Leeuwarden and Düsseldorf.  But as it’s a Rotterdam-based company it’s very prominent in the city. Until August 6 a shared scooter, uniquely designed by Blijdorp Festival, will be available for example. 

The scooter, named Augustus, looks summery and is almost impossible to miss. That’s a thing because it can provide some new prizes. In the run-up to the festival, you can spot the shared scooter in the city. By posting an August photo on Instagram, you will automatically receive 25 Check coins. And also have the chance to win 1 year of free Check rides and tickets to the Blijdorp Festival.

Blijdorp Festival has an impressive line-up with Speedy J, Seth Troxler, Soul Clap, Kevin & The Animals, S10 and Kamma & Masalo among others.

Check the future

The Dutch micro-mobility provider and scooter platform Check recently received a capital injection of 10 million euros from venture capitalists Slingshot Ventures and Ponooc. The investment will be used to enhance the development of the company’s self-built technology platform, which serves multiple municipalities and over 300.000 users on a daily basis. Additionally, Check will use the money to expand its national and international footprint.

Paul van Merrienboer, co-founder of Check: “Research shows that our users make a significant contribution to countering the unnecessary use and -ownership of cars in cities. With Slingshot Ventures, we team up with powerful entrepreneurs with a digital focus. I am confident that together we can maximize our impact on cities, both national and international.”
