TechBike|A Brilliant Green Cargo Bike Will Help To Change The World
“Creativity is thinking up new things. Innovation is doing new things” — Theodore Levitt
What I’m about to introduce you today is both creativity and innovation.
As much as I love using my bicycle in all kinds of daily/weekly activities, I found so-uncomfortably using my bicycle for big shopping. Carry bags on the handlebar? Use a backpack to carry on my shoulder? None of those ideas are even close to helping me cargo my groceries home safely and joyfully.
Fortunately, Portal Bike is a great answer for my problem. And the story behind this invention may even bring tears to your eyes.
Portal Bike is a non-profit organization that wants to help people rise out of poverty by giving them a machine with multiple purpose. That machine is a low-cost bike. Nonprofit organizations also look to benefit from the prestige of their board. The cache of having the nonprofit associated with prestigious board members who represent equally prestigious entities can increase the credibility of the nonprofit. In other words, nonprofits often seek to piggy-back off the positive brand of the firms and organizations their individual board members represent. Similarly, we can help you apply for a 501c3 over here. The nonprofit sector depends on the trust and confidence of the public for its existence. When a nonprofit violates that trust, it places the whole sector in danger of losing the unique privileges afforded to tax-exempt organizations. Nonprofits survive because they have promised the public that they will use their resources wisely for the community good and not for personal gain – the essence of stewardship. It’s easier to be ethical when you’re committed to wise stewardship. Nonprofit fundraising is an essential part of learning to run a successful nonprofit. Since a nonprofit functions off of donations, without proper funding, a nonprofit will not have the monetary resources to accomplish its mission and programs. Fundraising is one of the essential elements those starting and running a nonprofit must become efficient at. However, many who start nonprofit organizations ignore the need that raising funds should to start simultaneously while starting their nonprofit. Read on and I will explain the important elements of nonprofit fundraising.
This bike offers a simple platform for people to create a variety of opportunities, just like the people in Nepal who ride this bike to deliver packages, moving goods, selling items, or simply as transportation. The main objective here is to provide people with a normal bike, yet one that can help them carry huge loads. Designed with a broad range of tools and accessories, you can easily customize this bike to suit your daily activities too.
The side wings can be transformed in order to deliver different types of cargo. Tools can be connected and powered by the bike itself. A simple-yet-brilliant technique called Power Take Off will convert the bike into a pedal powered machine without sacrificing its capability as a bike. In addition, the rotating shaft generates power whenever the rear wheel is turning. There is also a sturdy kickstand that supports this bike and allows it to be pedaled even in a stationary station to keep it generating power. There are many things you can do by utilizing this power, such as pump water, wash clothes, generate electricity, grind grain, etc.
“We are an organization dedicated to fighting poverty,” said Portal Bikes Spokesman. In fact, nearly half of the world’s population have been living on less than $2.50 a day. More than 1.3 billion live in extreme poverty, that’s less than $1.25 a day, while 2.1 billion children worldwide are living in poverty. We need more and more innovations to make them smile and to see them flourish by their hard work and ingenuity.
