Ubiike is a platform that connects people who want to rent out bikes in Ireland. Our team met at a Techstars Hackathon weekend in Waterford. We are a team of developers, designers & entrepreneurs. Sean Nolan was the person on the team who came up with the original idea of the bike rental platform. We came 2nd at the Techstars hackathon.
You are pretty lucky if you haven't experienced the feeling of visiting a bike rentals loading bay like Dublin Bikes and finding out that there are no rental bikes available. Also, people have bikes at home sitting idle gathering dust.
Create a platform that connects people who want to let out their bikes to people who want to use the bikes for a period of time.
As Ubiike is a marketplace platform we have 2 types of users. Firstly we have the people who advertise their bikes on our platform to be let out. Then we have the people looking to use the bikes for a period of time. In the next section we will look at the different personas involved.

- Surrounding yourself with good people will help you in the long run.
- It's better to learn from someone who isn't involved with creating your product when it comes to UX design.
- It is important to pivot if stuck when starting up a business. Don't pigeon hole yourself.
