“I have never seen a product-market-fit that is so good on the consumer side…”
Alan Jiang is talking about micromobility, a space he’s been “extremely excited” about since his days as head of Southeast Asia at China’s now-defunct bike-sharing giant ofo.
And why wouldn’t he be? Today, Jiang helms Singapore-based micromobility startup Beam, which in February raised the largest ever funding round in the micromobility space in Southeast Asia—at US$93 million.
Founded in July 2018 by Jiang and Deb Gangopadhyay, Beam offers electric vehicles (EVs) like e-scooter and e-bike sharing services across five markets––Malaysia, Thailand, New Zealand, South Korea, and Australia.
