37: Micromobility in Europe - an Interview with Lawrence Leuschner, Co-Founder of Tier
In this episode, Oliver interviews Lawrence Leuschner, CEO and co-founder of Tier, one of Europe’s largest scooter operators with over 6 million cumulative rides to date.
Specifically, we cover:
Lawrence’s background as a successful entrepreneur and his motivations for starting Tier
the landscape for micromobility adoption in Europe, and why Europe is better placed to adsorb these transport innovations
We unpack the reasoning behind their unique operational model and more recent moves into custom hardware
reviews of regulations and data standards across Europe, lessons from Paris and why he thinks Germany is the most promising micromobility market
capital efficiency of operations, and how/why European operators differ from Lime and Bird
current and future integrations with public transport systems, and where this is most likely to occur.
All in all, a fascinating interview!
