Meepo Board mission? Make electric skateboarding accessible for everyone and encourage electric skateboard use as an ecological solution to transportation needs.
Why an electric skateboard?
Electric skateboarding is one of the fastest-growing modes of transportation. Why? First, the cost. Electric skateboards start under $300, have almost no maintenance costs, and can get upgraded over time. Second, electric skateboarding is a very convenient way to commute to work, school, and beyond. Who wants to be stuck in traffic, smashed into a crowded train, or show up to work drenched in sweat from biking? An electric skateboard can change your commute from a nightmare to a fun and eco-friendly sport. Third, it’s just plain fun and everyone can use more fun in their life.
Meepo is one of the first to manufacture high quality value-driven electric skateboards. Founded by Kieran Mao, Meepo Boards thrives on innovation, passion, and quality. All Meepo boards are handcrafted on-site in Meepo’s Shenzen factory. Over 120,000 Meepo Board riders in 70+ countries have fallen in love with electric skateboarding.
How it all began?
In April 2017, Kieran Mao, a skate obsessed visionary, built an electric skateboard for himself . He showcased his innovative board on YouTube hoping for B2B opportunities and to be noticed by retailers. Instead, his video caught the attention of the electric skateboard community, and he was in undated with orders. As the demand for his state-of-the-art boards increased, Kieran, an engineer at the time, quit his day job and Meepo Board came into being.
Meepo Board is Born
After founding Meepo Electric Skateboards (named after the Dota character), Kieran launched Meepo Board V1.5. Electric skateboard fans loved its uniquely designed concave deck, and the V1.5 immediately became a bestseller in the US. The demand for his boards further increased and viral marketing across platforms further boosted the order volume. This allowed Kieran to start hiring a dedicated and qualified team that has been growing since day one.
Meepo Board Today
Today, less than two years after selling the first board, there are more than 120,000 Meepo Riders in over 70 countries around the world. Meepo Board is always innovating, with its R & D department introducing several new models a year. Recently, the company started to organise group rides in many cities around the world and also co-founded the International Eskate Day which took place for the first time on June 16, 2019.
