It seems like we owe you an update on JIVE’s development. In short: everything’s going well!
For the past few weeks, we’ve been mainly focusing on tech stuff: product and website development. We simply want to deliver JIVEs to you as soon as possible! Our product development is going well - we’ve got an impressive team of senior engineers working on JIVE around the globe. We can’t disclose any models yet, but things are looking very impressive! Take a look at the picture attached - that’s the best we can do for you now!
The good news is that you don’t have too wait long to see more. We’re launching our new website in December this year and are planning to offer 100 pre-orders to our loyal followers. Waiting list is long, so make sure you’re on it!
That’s it for now. Short update, but concrete. We better get back to work!
Today we’ve got more good news for you (that’s called momentum!). Tech City News and The Daily Telegraph were kind enough to write articles on our latest success, which was successful fundraising on Crowdcube.com!

Let the good time roll :)
Good news! JIVE has been getting some momentum recently and now after a couple of months of hard work we’re happy to announce that last Wednesday we went live on Crowdcube!
We’re aiming to raise £150,000 to fund the next phase of project development. If you feel like supporting us financially, please visit http://www.crowdcube.com/investment/jive-bike-jam-vehicles-ltd-13528 and invest now! Hurry up, there’s a long waiting line!
All the best,
Exciting times have come: the next week JIVE team will fully assemble the first chainless (encapsulated inside the frame as well) bicycle system ever! We’ve already received some parts from our suppliers but we’re just waiting to present it to you until it’s all done. Another post should follow next week! :)
Apart from that, the full-size foldable model of JIVE will be ready in approximately two weeks from now. Everything will be posted here so please make sure that you visit us soon!
All the best
Good news again!
JIVE got invited by the Prime Minister’s Office to join the “Small business celebration” reception held at the 10 Downing Street next week. We don’t really know how they have heard of us, which makes the whole thing even more intriguing and exciting. Someone’s spread the world. It’s said to be a small reception for a few startups and some officials.
Apparently, Dave Cameron is going to attend - do you think we’ll have a chat about JIVE? Would be awesome.
That’s the small things that make us proud. This is one of them.
We’ll keep you updated.
Last Tuesday I went to an investor meeting to chat with someone who was potentially interested in supporting JIVE. After almost two hours and 3 coffees we went out of the cafe and he said something like: “These e-bikes could be a true revolution. How come I have never seen one?” Then I said … “How about this one?”
How cool is that? An electric, folding bike parked outside the cafe! Not a cool one … but still an electric bike. Exactly when I needed one.
That’s good luck. Hope to see more of these on streets soon.
Fresh bit of updates on the project progress!
As some of you probably know, we’re currently working on the final prototypes of JIVE - they look even more stunning then the first ones! Luckily, we managed to team up with an electric golf cart manufacturer and old Aston Martins’ renovator. Both of them promised to make JIVE as beautiful as it is possible!
Thanks to UCL Advances’ generosity and help we’re progressing faster and faster everyday. Can’t wait to see the final outcome.
We’re working on the new website’s design as well. Some of you have been asking and waiting for pre-orders for a long time. Well, thanks to the new website you’ll be able to materialise your interest!
Best regards to you all.
It’s been quite a long time since we updated you on the project’s progress - it’s been a busy period of time for us with many things happening, but fortunately we managed to get over it!
We’ve welcomed some new people on our board - Fiona, James and Cristiano. We’re growing! We are also currently getting ready to raise our next investment round - what that means is we’ll post more pictures from the prototype development very soon! Exciting!
New prototypes are under development at the moment - more pictures should follow within the next few weeks.
On top of that, here’s the personal commitment from me: I’ll post at least once a week to keep you guys updated with the progress.
Thank you for your support and interest in JIVE.
It’s been a good time for JIVE recently! We’re progressing with prototypes (more pictures to be uploaded soon!) and won China UK Challenge International Final 2012!
The final took place at the University of East London campus - 3 Chinese and 3 British teams competed for the first prize - money and business trip to China to develop the business opportunity. The competition was tough - really good teams and technologies presented! That makes our win even more valuable. We’re going to be introduced to many government representatives as well as potential business partners in Chongqing! When? Early next year.
What’s more, this Thursday we have the Crowdcube pitching contest - 150 investors got invited to watch 8 pitches (also JIVE!) and invest the ones they like the most. Hopefully, a few of them will be willing to support us! We’re pitching for £125,000 and offer 15% of our company. Do you fancy a share?
More pictures and updates to be uploaded soon!
Keep your fingers crossed this Thursday!
Enjoy new pictures from the Conservative Party Conference 2012.
