Innovation, Growth and Achievements

September was FULL of incredible moments for ACTON.
The work the team delivered thus far has paid off exponentially!

In early September, the Silicon Valley Innovation and Entrepreneurship Forum invited us to the 9th Annual SVIEF Awards in the Santa Clara Convention Center.  Our team was honored as one of the top 30 Innovative Companies in the Silicon Valley. We like to thank the organization for recognizing not only us but other companies that continue to innovate and build better futures in their respective fields. And even though our time was short, it was an amazing opportunity to meet new people and discovering new technologies and innovations that would make the world a better place!


On top of that, we got a chance to take a selfie with Mr. Monster himself, Noel Lee!

And speaking of fearless leaders, our CEO and Co-founder, Janelle Wang, was featured in Women of Silicon Valley’s 10 Questions piece on their website.

Here’s a little teaser from the article: 

I decided I wanted to be in the tech industry when I was a kid. My father is a physicist, so I got motors, battery packs, and soldering tool kits as gifts/toys from my father at a young age. I hand made a portable personal electric fan at age 6 and have enjoyed making and creating things with some type of tech in them ever since.
— Janelle Wang, Co-Founder + CEO of ACTON

As always, we are lucky to have her as a leader of ACTON and an advocate for the growing micromobility movement! If you like to know a little more about her, check out the article here.

We also like to announce that ACTON has officially partnered with the premiere software company Movatic! Movatic pairs our scooters with their backend and app platform and offers a compelling package to new operators.

"Movatic and ACTON are on the same page in our desire to provide our clients with the best service, and we do a lot together behind the scenes to make it happen."

And finally, we got a test track!  But what should we name our course? ACTON constructed a brand-new obstacle course for our scooters to test strength and versatility!  The new testing ground simulates both the ordinary and extreme environments the M PRO powers through every day, ensuring we can offer the best product out there for your fleet. 

And, as of now, we don’t have a name for our test track just yet.  What should we call it?

With success comes evolution! As ACTON continues to grow, we would like to welcome two more team members to the ACTON family, Peter Jeung and Sonia Xi

Introducing the TOPSWAP

As Summer finally comes to an end, the team continues the revolution of the micromobility industry. We are very excited to announce all the new editions to the ACTON family, starting with ACTON’s M PRO TOPSWAP, our patented swappable battery technology.

TOPSWAP is an optional feature on our M PRO scooter lineup. It is designed to be a quick reload for any operator’s charging team, swapping an empty Lithium Ion battery with a fully charged unit in a matter of seconds. TOPSWAP increases scooter usage, minimizes expenses and overhead, and increases active rental inventory significantly.

Our CTO + Co-founder, Peter Treadway, has built the TOPSWAP to be a game-changer!

I’m very excited to release our new swappable battery technology for our sharable scooters, the TOPSWAP! TOPSWAP has brought the best possible business model to the sharing industry. Imagine not having to bring your whole fleet back at the end of every night. What if you didn’t have to spend as much on your warehouse, technicians, juicers, or vans to pick up your scooters? What if your whole operation suddenly became streamlined so that you could really start making some money for your business? We already make the longest-lasting scooters in the industry and now they’ve become even better. Give us a call to let us know how we can serve you!”

If you are interested in finding out more about our new technology,  contact us at info@actonglobal.com for more info or set up a demo unit review.

And speaking of game-changers, our friend, Jason Russ, was kind enough to help us show off our M PRO in cinematic style!

The M PRO Crunch

Things were heating up in the middle of the summer for both the ACTON family and our operators!

In the Silicon Valley, ACTON participated in TechCrunch Sessions: Mobility and had a total blast!  The team met with a lot of wonderful innovators and passionate people who are always looking towards the future. We also like to thank World Journal for highlighting us in your newspaper, featuring the ACTON family and the M PRO:

 

“Sturdy handlebars, large wheels and decks with headlight, taillight, and sidelights, ACTON’s electric scooter is safer and stronger… the company cares more about the product’s durability, and the product usually has a lifespan four to five times more than other scooters.”

- Yuchen Liang; World Journal

 

And, our website has a brand-new look!

We like to congratulate CLEVR Mobility and KUHMUTE for launching their fleet with our wonderful ACTON M PRO!  We asked around and someone had great things to say about our scooters:

"I have ridden different types of fleet scooters and ACTON M PRO was the best by far... All of the other scooters felt like they were missing something, but you guys nailed it on all fronts. I think the M PRO is perfect for fleet use."

- Scott Spitler, Co-Founder & CTO, Kuhmute

Meanwhile, in the rest of the world, people are getting ready to start their own fleet with our M PROs, and we cannot be any more excited!  We look forward to seeing fleets in cities like Reykjavík, Iceland; Sofia, Bulgaria; Bozeman, Montana; and San Antonio, Texas!

Despite our successful run thus far, we will always continue to grow and evolve.  
ACTON would like to introduce exciting patented technology very soon, stay tuned.

Our team has been traveling all over the world, connecting with the brightest minds in micromobility, establishing relationships that will help further develop the future of rideshare.

 “Our customers are loving this scooter. Safe for riders and they last longer for operators. 
A win-win for an awesome product. 
Hats off to the ACTON team

We thank all our clients and customers for this incredible journey into micromobility; we will continue to keep moving with our electric scooters because ACTON believes our future needs more vehicle options. The evolution of micro-mobility has exponentially grown, and it is easier now to vision a world full of alternative ways of traveling efficiently. With our M PRO, we continue building for community, accessibility and energy efficiency; not to mention it is also a very comfortable ride.

New Era of Urban Micromobility

With Spring coming, there is so much happening at ACTON land!

 The Micromobility Conference was held by Micromobility Industries on Jan 31, 2019 in Richmond, CA. The event was hosted in this spacious and open-design historical building - Craneway Pavilion with its picturesque location. Our CEO Janelle Wang presented ACTON as one of the leaders and pioneers in this category on stage.
Please check more info here for next event - https://micromobility.io/

The room had amazing energy; many partners, city officials and ride share company representatives did test rides on our solid built M PRO e-scooter. We were working together to make a better, happier, and healthier system.
