Jet-Tread was formed to design a kick-scooter system with braking energy recovery & reuse for last mile transportation. We are a group of engineering students with a passion for design and a drive for entrepreneurship. We are (going to be) working with a group of students from the U of I college of business who will help us with market research and formulate a business plan.

The clients for this project include U of I faculty and a company founded by U of I alumni. If all works as hoped, they will receive a working design, a functioning prototype, and a business plan for manufacture of a last-mile scooter by May 2010.
