about this episode

Jason’s guest today is Michael Keating, CEO & Founder of ScootNetworks. The shared, electric, and smartphone-activated scooters launched at the 2012 LAUNCH festival — and have been tearing up the market and down the streets of San Francisco ever since. Jason and Michael cover a lot of ground, including the company’s tremendous growth in the last year, the tricky economics of raising money & running a business in the green/clean tech space, whether Americans are taking to scooting like they took to expresso, and ScootNetworks’ vision to dominate the electric transportation market, nationwide.
