With e-bikes and other small electric vehicles becoming more and more popular, Christiaan van Nispen and Olivier Coops created and patented a contactless charger system for e-bikes. No wires, or having to carry a battery, the Tiler features wireless induction charging and green mobility with its sustainable charging tile. The idea came to co-founder Nispen while he was living in California working on charging poles for electric vehicles. He saw the large amount abandoned share e-bikes and the lack of charging available. He took this back to the Netherlands and in 2020 Coops joined as co-founder. They brought on a great team to round out the company and went to market in the Netherlands. The Tiler is spreading across Europe and hopeful soon, the US.
