“I had the good fortune of being introduced to Zip by Lance Larrabee, US Head of Tektro-TRP. At the time, OpenBike was little more than myself, an idea, a cobbled-together deck, and Lance's recommendation.
Zip is a strategic investor who understands the bicycle industry, offers useful feedback and is well-connected in the space. I also appreciate his no-BS approach to investing; he grilled me on my vision and ability to execute, we agreed to terms and he wired over the money, releasing me to focus on building and iterating.
I thank Zip for his support and look forward to returning his investment many times over.
