HEADQUARTER:
Kenya
COMPANY ACTIVITY:
Developer, EV charging, Productive Use / PUE
Solar e-Cycles Kenya (TryKe) is a sustainable mobility start-up based in Nairobi working to become Africa’s most impactful organization. We are resolute on understanding mobility and logistics for rural based small holder farmers and traders. We recognize the inefficient, fragmented, and expensive nature of rural mobility and are keen to employ the palpable benefits of electric mobility and digitalization to this problem. Allowing farmers autonomy in mobility, gives them control over their first mile logistics needs and thus better access to markets where they can fetch higher than farm gate prices. Moreover, during downtime, the mobility assets can be used to fulfill mobility demand by individuals and businesses thus becoming an alternative revenue stream. Digitalization allows TryKe to monitor macro and micro assets thus delivering a robust predictive maintenance service hence further reducing operational expenditure for users and customers. Lastly, in rural Africa, demand varies, and thus, it is imperative to aggregate demand – to this end, TryKe is exploring a digital platform that will match farmers and traders with a mobility need to boda-boda and tuk-tuk operators, such that both operational expenditure, revenues and consequently, profitability are impacted.
