Yesterday Daan and me literally “Get out of the building” to prove his business idea: use the velomobile to do advertising, and in this way helping the people to buy this kind of vehicle at a less price.
For who doesn’t know what is a velomobile,like I was before know Daan, see the picture below.
At first I didn’t think that it was a good idea, but yesterday I totally changed my mind.
We drove from his house to KTH and then came back, through all Stockholm, making some stops; that were for me , it was very hard to follow him and at the sime time took pictures.
People asked him information about the velomobile, but more important, during the trip a lot of people stared at the velomobile and took pictures.
I think that Daan proved that his idea is good.
Here there is a good opportunity to do a good advertising, obviously he has to try to improve this vehicle(there are some visibility problem when it is closed) and he has to pay attention at the economics of the business, but he is a mechanical engineer and he is going to take a course into accounting, so I think he is in a good position and moreover he wants to improve himself!
P.S. I also tried the velomobile, but I’m too high 😛
