A SCOOT TO 10 DOWNING STREET
Mark is one of the members of our customer service team. He has an encyclopaedic mind for detail, loves helping people choose their scooters and is the self-nominated first tester of any new electric scooters we release.
What happened when our co-founder scooted in to 10 Downing Street (with permission).
We were as proud as punch when our co-founder Anna Gibson, was invited to speak with Downing Street advisers on how best the government can encourage entrepreneurs to start their own business in the UK.
Anna co-founded Micro Scooters just over 10 years ago when she spotted a child riding the Mini Micro on Clapham Common. As soon as her son Edward tried and fell in love with the scooter she teamed up with co-founder Philippa Gogarty to make the scooter more widely available.
Each giving up high flying careers the pair started the business from their kitchen tables (at one point with 3 children each running around while doing so). Neither of them imagined just how far they, the business and the use of scooters amongst children and adults would come in a decade.
Speaking about her day Anna said “I spent an amazing morning at No.10 with Daniel Korsky (Deputy Head of the Prime Minister’s policy unit and Special Advisor to David Cameron) Emma Jones (from Enterprise Nation) and other policy advisers to the government discussing the issues and challenges that face small and medium sized businesses today”.
Of course when you are the head of a scooter company there is only one way to arrive to your meetings.
