Engineering graduates bring sustainable carsharing alternative to UBC
Veemos are coming to UBC! An enclosed, electric-assisted, human-powered bicycle that aims to replace automobiles on campus, Veemos are an innovative way to travel sustainably. VeloMetro is launching a Veemo pilot fleet on the UBC campus in fall of 2017.
Applied Science is proud to recognize two of VeloMetro’s founders as graduates.
Kody Baker, CEO and co-founder, holds a BASc in mechanical engineering from UBC. Kody is an experienced technology manager and entrepreneur with a strong vision for technology trends. With a broad range of deep experience in engineering, project management, and manufacturing within several cleantech and high-tech companies, he has brought products to market such as electric vehicles, biomass energy systems, and process control systems. Kody is also a certified professional engineer.
Jonathan Faille, CTO and co-founder received a MEng from UBC. His degree centered on mechatronics; the marriage of mechanical and electrical engineering. He also holds a Master of Science in Sustainable Energy Engineering at The Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Sweden and a Mechanical Engineering degree from McGill University in Montreal, Quebec.
