Launched in May 2018, Bounce is the brainchild of Vivekananda Hallekere, CEO of Bounce along with Anil and Varun. Bounce taps into the need for daily, affordable safe travel options for various commuters. Right from covering long distances to providing last-mile support, we aim at addressing diverse mobility needs.
Indigenously built, with in-house R&D, Bounce dockless scooters were first launched in Bengaluru and quickly became the desired mode of transport in the city and parts of Karnataka, Telangana and Andhra Pradesh. In just 1 year, Bounce facilitated 1,00,000 rides a day with a fleet of 30,000+ on road. We remain India’s fastest growing start-up that scaled to 100K transactions in a day.
A true visionary that he is, Vivek strongly believes in the potential of Electric Vehicles in India and launched in-house EV mobility solutions in June 2019. In just 6 months, Bounce EV clocked 8 million km, along with establishing a distributed network of 200+ battery swapping. With strong ethics, empathy, and unabated energy at his core, Vivek stands as a strong leader, firmly believing that India is at the dawn of an EV revolution. The company is committed to taking up all challenges to bring India onto the world map of EV adopters.
