So, this is how it goes.
I meet this chum for lunch because he is from Indian Institute of Management, Calcutta and I had not met him for a few years.
I was under the impression he was heading an electric scooter division of his business group, and then he tells me that his division was more focussed on electric bicycles.
If only he had told me that before lunch, I would have taken him to a much better restaurant.
You see, I’m a bicyclist, and I cycle to office everyday – about 10 Kms each way. Not the smartest – or the safest – thing to do in Chennai, but it’s a valuable habit for a poor man.
When this IIMC pal told me further that he was looking for good dealers and business partners for expanding his e-cycle footprint in India, I made him an offer that was sweet for me and one he could not refuse – I find him a good dealer/franchisee and he gives me the best electric bicycle from this stable, 𝒇𝒐𝒓 𝒇𝒓𝒆𝒆.
So if you are an entrepreneur keen on electric vehicles – 𝘢𝘯𝘺𝘸𝘩𝘦𝘳𝘦 𝘪𝘯 𝘐𝘯𝘥𝘪𝘢 𝘣𝘶𝘵 𝘦𝘴𝘱𝘦𝘤𝘪𝘢𝘭𝘭𝘺 𝘴𝘰𝘶𝘵𝘩 𝘐𝘯𝘥𝘪𝘢 (Chennai, Bengaluru, Trichy, Hyderabad, Coimbatore, Trivandrum, Kochi…) – and would like to explore working with a fast growing EV brand, supported by an established business group…
…don’t talk to them.
𝘛𝘢𝘭𝘬 𝘵𝘰 𝘮𝘦 𝘧𝘪𝘳𝘴𝘵!
Nothing would be sweeter for me than to start using an electric bicycle – especially one that I did not pay for.
