About Ignas Survila : The old-school approach to mobility requires innovation. Urban pollution, traffic jams, and climate change are a few of the many problems to solve. These problems resonate deeply with me, and I am already doing my best to tackle it. My name is Ignas Survila, and I am an experienced founder with a demonstrated history of working in the mobility industry. I have skills in product design, advertising, branding & identity, manufacturing management, business development, and entrepreneurship. Lately, I was the Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of Unicorn Scooters and have long been inspired to work on last-mile transportation solutions in large part. Throughout my career, I have been at the forefront of innovative transportation solutions. Most recently as a pioneer in the kick scooter industry serving as Chief Executive Officer of Citybirds Sarl and General manager at Citybirds Sarl Lithuanian Branch. During four years I helped Citybirds to design, develop and launch four different sustainable products from the idea to the mass production, developed and executed short/long-term business strategies, created supply chain strategy, sales strategy, investor decks, and financial roadmaps. Moreover, I helped to attract investors to invest in Citybirds, and together with a fantastic team, we launched a successful crowdfunding campaign. Finally, I have successfully sold my part of the company to the investors from Switzerland. Citybirds, together with Unicorn Scooters, has been awarded 15 worldwide known design awards, including two Red Dots and three A'Design Awards.
STATEMENT OF ART:
Nowadays, the design is not only about the materials you chose, shape, or function you create. On the contrary, it is a super complicated process which involves designer to become a part of marketing, physics, engineering, business, political or social movement, sustainability, advertising, etc. I am genuinely grateful and happy to be a part of this fantastic ecosystem, and I am enjoying creating a better routine for all the people around the globe.
