Riide Smashes $50K Kickstarter Goal in Less Than 24 Hours


Local startup darling Riide has revolutionized bike riding as we know it today. Launched by Georgetown University alum Jeff Stefanis and George Washington University graduate Amber Wason in 2012, the duo has transformed their passion for making electric vehicles the golden standard for American cities into a real, modern, cleverly engineered product set to pave the way for the future of urban transportation.

What really sets Riide apart from its competition is that people believe in their impressive creation, too. They're highly supportive of Riide's tech savvy, affordable electric bike as can be seen by the success they've found with their 
Kickstarter campaign that has been live for less than 24 hours. In one day (mind you the day still hasn't ended quite yet...), Riide has managed to exceed its $50,000 goal with $51,744 in funding to boast of to date.
