My name is Lelia König 27 years. I started with an apprenticeship as a bank clerk. Because of the goals I set for myself, I always wanted to develop myself further. Therefore I moved from Baden-Württemberg to Thuringia and started my studies in "Sports Management". This study helped me to get temporal flexibility. More and more fascinated by the founding events, and the start-up world, my partner Sandro Beck and I finally founded ourselves in 2019.

We started with the development of our DASHBIKE. This safety camera for cyclists is legally compliant and data protection compliant. It only records if the distance to the cyclist has fallen below the minimum distance or if an accident has occurred.

On the other hand, DASHBIKE can help any city to plan and improve its cycling infrastructure. With our urban data platform, DASHTRACK, we provide the city with analyzed cycling data. Through our different sensors, we can identify danger points, but also accidents, busy routes and road conditions.

After one year of preparation, we started the implementation. In the meantime, our duo has grown into a team of 14 employees in 2 years. A super diverse team, from 8 nations and different characters, which all pursue a common goal.

In my spare time, I race mountain bikes professionally and run a profitable Instagram channel with 17000 followers.
