Entrepreneurs! Get Your Business On the Road with the BERLIN LOVES YOU Bike.
By Philip Eggersgluess . May 20, 2016
What’ve we got to offer you? €3000 in total, in expert services and, of course, our super-sexy BERLIN LOVES YOU bike.
If Berlin loves two things, it’s young entrepreneurs and bikes. If Berlin loves three things, it’s young entrepreneurs, bikes and the Berlin summer. If you combine those three things, you’ve got our latest idea to get a young Berlin entrepreneur’s business idea going.
Think of the many million- and billionaires who say it all started selling out of a market stall, from a van, from the back of a bike. BERLIN LOVES YOU started on the back of a bike. And now it’s your turn.
We’re offering everything a young business needs to get going. All you need to bring is a great idea.
So, what’s the deal?
If you win our contest, you’ll receive our stunning red BLY bicycle for a year. It was originally made in ‘70s NYC for Coca Cola, and features a sound system and a DJ mix belt by Pokketmixer. This is your new mobile shop. Its transportation box is your new store room, with space for your ice creams, your advertising dildos, your darkest secrets, whatever wares you wish to sell. You can do whatever you want with the bike, and it comes with a license to sell anywhere in central Berlin.
Alongside the bike, you’ll get:
BERLIN LOVES YOU will write once PER MONTH about you, your business, and any events or happenings for a full 12 months. With thousands of eyes on our articles and Facebook posts per month, the exposure will be enormously beneficial.
Alongside these articles, you’ll receive $250 worth of Facebook boosts throughout those 12 months—meaning your articles will go to MORE Berliners, more often (and not just our normal readers).
Our friends over at 99designs.com will design your logo—worth $739, and for you, absolutely free. A little about 99designs:
