E-mobility solutions for last-mile connectivity have captured the market’s attention. The industry further blossomed when people commenced actively opting for a more eco-friendly option over conventional ways to travel. However, the micro-mobility industry went through a slump during the coronavirus crisis, but it is ready to take off again. The Irish dockless e-scooter startup Zipp Mobility’s latest funding round is a testament to that.
