Brad Bao, Co-founder and chairman
How I Got Here is a weekly podcast from PhocusWire and Mozio, getting the inside stories behind innovation and startups in travel and transportation.
Lime is on a mission to overhaul the way people think about urban mobility, whether it's with bikes or scooters, commuting or leisure. Brad Bao tells the story to PhocusWire's Kevin May and David Litwak of Mozio.
It takes a lot to change a mindset that has prevailed for decades. Bikes (and scooters) are, for many people, mostly a thing of enjoyment.
But Lime had other ideas, driven by a desire to rethink the bike as something that can be used for both leisure and commuting, at the same time as doing something positive for urban environments.
The company was in development for a few years before it launched but it seems extraordinary that it has now only really been in existence for nearly four years, such is the strength of the brand and the speed in which it has expanded around the world.
There have been many ups and downs along the way, but co-founders Toby Sun and Brad Bao have stuck to their principles as best as they can.
Bao joins us at the latest guest on How I Got Here.
