Kick Scoot UK Ltd, stockists of alternative and innovative pedal power and accessories
Steven O’Neill and Kirsten Giles, based in Braintree, Essex, discovered the kick scooter whilst exploring alternative means of walking their dogs.
Their business idea was to bring the innovative scooters to the British marketplace and open an on-line shop. Through the Virgin Start-up Loans programme, the couple met with Nwes Business Advisor, Julie Pauley, at the Thurrock Centre for Business. Their ideas and future plans were developed and Kick Scoot UK Ltd was formed.
The company now has a wide range of options available as well as the dog-walking/mushing scooters. These include children’s scooters; adult scooters (for the city or country); and a scooter specifically designed for people with limited agility due to illness/injury. The company has just opened its first retail outlet at Lakes Innovation Centre (beginning of December 2014), just in time for Christmas.
