Velco began in 2015, when Pierre Regnier presented his concept of a bike tracker in the Entrepreneurship master at Audencia. That’s when the three co-founders, Pierre Regnier (GE 16), Romain Savouré (GE 16) and Jonnhy Smith (GE 17), came together. By meeting with people from the cycling community, Velco learnt more about the problems associated with cycling and proposed to come up with a first solution.
