It takes a considerable amount of courage, purpose, resilence and tenacity to bring a Micro Mobility (scooter-bike!) startup to life!

With an entrepreneurial spirit that was evident from a young age, our guest – Emil Nnani - took the business world by storm when he launched his first venture at just 17 years old. His tenacity and vision led him to achieve his first million in sales by the age of 22.

A serial and seasoned entrepreneur, Emil takes us on a wonderful journey through his earlier businesses - a mechanic business, a clothing line, a singing career (hip hop Christian music) and an errand driver business, where he honed his entrepreneurial skills, ideally preparing him for his current startup: Boaz Bikes.

As the Founder and CEO of Boaz Bikes, Emil took a vision of a safer scooter, while supporting underserved communities, and created a groundbreaking electric scooter and E-Bike MaaS platform that has transformed the landscape of urban transportation by solving first and last-mile transportation problems for cities across the globe.

Here's what we learned:
* why Emil, while building one business, saw a way to create safer, more equitable scooters and stopped everything to build Boaz Bikes
* how Emil's earlier clothing business gave him the resources and relationships he needed with overseas vendors to help him secure the best manufacturers for Boaz Bikes
* all about per minute rental revenue business model
* why you can't insure scooters
* why equity crowdfunding is a better alternative for minority business owners to raise capital (Emil raised over $2.0 million with his first campaign!)

Thank you for carving out time to improve your Founder Game - when you do better, your startup will do better - cheers!
