In total, Wheels operates in twelve cities and four universities across the United States.
Wheels was founded in 2018 and is led by veterans of the micro-mobility and shared transportation industries including Zipcar, Bird, and Uber. “Our businesses are complementary in really powerful ways,” said Marco McCottry, CEO of Wheels. McCottry was formerly Midwest operations manager at Uber and led North American operations at Bird.

HLBZ operates three revenue streams and sells subscriptions to their apps giving customers access to their products:
Mobility – Operating globally in 40 cities. HLBZ has thousands of e-scooters, e-bicycles, and e-mopeds parked all over these cities. Quite simply, clients locate the nearest transport they need on the app, go to it, and scan the QR code to unlock it and then go. The app also ensures you are properly parked when finished. In addition to all vehicles being electric, every component of a HLBZ transport device is recyclable.
Kitchen – HLBZ delivers food and is currently developing their Helbiz Kitchen segment already operating in Milan. Using the ghost kitchen concept allows customers to mix cuisines in a single order with a quick delivery using an environmentally friendly transport.
Helbiz Media – is a live sports and entertainment platform focused primarily on live coverage of Series B Soccer. The service, available by subscription, is available on mobile, tablet, on the web, or on smart TV and covers twenty clubs with over 390 matches as well as playoffs.
Recently the company signed an OTT service agreement to broadcast MLB games in Italy for the next three seasons. A recent agreement with Amazon will allow for a subscription to Helbiz Live to be purchased through Amazon Prime. That’s big- time exposure!
According to Precedence research, the Micro-mobility Market was estimated at $48.1B in 2021 and is expected to grow to $198B by 2030 indicating a CAGR of 17%. The research cites factors such as fuel prices, road congestion, and limited parking in cities as factors for an elevated level of growth in the sector.
The chart set up indicated below looks primed for continued gains after the 18% swing in last Friday’s session. The low RSI (14) of 38.15 indicates to me this stock is oversold. Trading volumes in the month of June have been higher than the preceding five months this year indicating significant investor interest.
We have a lot more to cover with Helbiz, keep an eye out for an updated report coming soon.
