Idea Sketch | Proposal


Idea pitch

We believe in making great things happen. We believe in the community's strength.
Imagine which difference millions of cyclists with a common purpose can make. Together we will protect all bikes against theft.

Where will your idea take place?

All over the world

Why does Europe need your idea?

In Germany alone more than 350.000 bikes get stolen every year. The estimated number of unknown cases probably is much higher. Financial loss, much wasted time and above all memories and friends are gone. In at least 9 of 10 cases for ever.
Europe needs InsecT, as Europe needs a crowd answer for a huge problem.
We believe in crowd solutions.
We believe in the strength of us all.

What is your impact?

We want to unity cyclists and achieve great things. We start with protecting our bikes against theft and bringing all stolen bikes back to their owners.
In one year from now we sell InsecT almost for the production price (EUR 30,00), as we know, InsecT only works if it spreads so far and so fast as possible.

An example from the everyday life could be:
You meet a friend in a café, leaving your bike outside. InsecT switches automatically into the theft protection mode. A thief tries to steal it but InsecT raises the alarm. You and all the community members around will be immediately notified via your App. Theft was avoided.
On the way back your App detects a stolen bike and informs the owner about the position. A good deed is done without your active assistance.
What a great day!

How do you get there?

- By creating a real good InsecT!

- By bringing our ideas in question every day and optimize them.

- By doing what the community says, as we learned one important thing: the crowd knows better.
