Our Story

eBee was founded in 2022 by Jaap Maljers, Isidoor Maljers, Joost Boeles and Sten van der Ham who saw bicycles as tools for transformative change. They believed that every man and woman should have the opportunity to do business in an environment free from congestion and pollution, and personally grow.

Today, eBees are providing a reliable, convenient and more affordable commuting alternative for busy urban lifestyles as well as cost-effective and green delivery solutions for businesses in addition to steady income for delivery riders.

With three business models: sales, full service delivery and rental, eBee is leading the transition to sustainable transportation across Africa, one city at a time.

Our e-bicycles are creating new possibilities and enabling everyone who rides them to take paths they have never taken before.
