Vinghen designs and develops electric micromobility solutions with head-turning design, superb riding characteristics and improved versatility.
This is our first product, Vinghen Ti1, an electric bike-scooter hybrid that combines the stability and versatility of a bicycle with the ease of use of a scooter.
*Images show a prototype of Vinghen Ti1. Minor changes will be made to the production model. The product is not on sale yet. It is currently available for pre-orders.
We are a team of three people with a combined work experience of nearly 30 years. We have gained knowledge and experience at renowned institutions, such as Amazon, DAF Trucks, Sensata Technologies, KPMG, Warwick University, The University of Sheffield and others.
We create products that change the way younger people view electric micromobility. Our goal is to get young professions into commuting by Vinghen. This could lead to a series of personal and communal, benefits, including:
- 92% reduction in CO2 emissions related to commuting.
- Elimination of local air pollutants such as NOx, HC, soot and others.
- Reduction of time wasted in congestion by up to 29 hours per year.
- A dramatic decrease of money spent on commuting.
We are launching an equity crowdfunding round soon.

Why invest in Vinghen?
By becoming a shareholder, you will help Vinghen to get to market, reach our first customers and grow our business, thus increasing the value of the company. You will have an impact on the development of the brand and the company and ultimately on making our cities cleaner and less congested.
Furthermore, if we reach our milestones and medium and long-term goals, you could benefit financially from the growth of the company.
What is crowdfunding?
Crowdfunding is the practice of funding a project or venture by raising money from a large number of people, typically via the Internet.
What are the risks in investing in shares?
When investing in shares, especially in startup businesses, the price of the shares depends on the success and value of the company. If the value of the company decreases or goes out of business, you would loose some or all of your investment.
Furthermore, when investing in a private company that does not trade its shares on the market, like Vinghen, it could be difficult to sell and value your shares.
You can find more information on the risks related to investing in shares on www.crowdcube.com (the platform where we will launch our campaign).
When will the campaign go live?
We will launch our campaign around February 2021. Initially the campaign will not be publicly visible, so if you don’t want to miss the investment opportunity, please register your interest and get priority access.
What is the minimum amount I can invest?
Crowdcube support investments as small as £10.
Can I sell my shares?
When buying shares in a starting company, selling them is not so easy, as they are usually not available to trade on a secondary market. You should expect to hold your shares for a longer period of time.
If Vinghen reaches its growth goals, there could be better opportunities to sell your shares. Most likely this will be in a next investment round, if the company is sold to another company, or if Vinghen lists on a stock exchange.
Can I claim tax relief on my investment?
Vinghen has received advanced assurance under the Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme.
This means that if you are an eligible UK tax payer, you may receive initial tax relief of 50% on investments up to £100,000 and Capital Gains Tax (CGT) exemption for any gains on the SEIS shares.
