Charlie Gleeson (25)

Zipp Mobility

Success for Charlie Gleeson’s e-scooter-sharing company has come just as fast as the name suggests. Founded in 2019, Dublin-based Zipp Mobility launched in October and is now scaling into six markets across Ireland and the UK. Gleeson initially formed the concept of a scooter-sharing project during a college project at UCD.

“I saw the growth and scale of the scooter-sharing industry on the west coast of America and thought it was fascinating,” he said.
