10 June 2019 – Croatian firm Include now sells its smart products to 44 markets around the world placing its first Monna Cycling Point in Canada, the company stated.
“We have confirmed an order for 11 Monna City models and, with that, opened our 44th market – Canada,” Include said.
Their partners in Canada are Montreal-based agency Orangerine who specialise in the creation of interactive communication tools and have worked with the likes of Google, L’Oréal, Samsung, BMW, and Red Bull.
“Include met Orangerine at the Smart City Expo World Congress in Barcelona when cooperation started, and to this date has realised the purchase of 11 pieces of Monna City Cycling Point. We are very proud to be part of this amazing project for the three municipalities: Candiac, Varennes and Plessisville.”
Two smart electrical sockets operated by 7″ display provide up to 250W of energy for charging electric bicycles, laptops and other electronic devices. Monna City is a perfect cycling point for urban locations, such as city squares, marinas or parks.
Its basic functions are 100% solar powered, and do not require any additional power supply, or infrastructural adjustments. More advanced functions – electric bicycle charging sockets, outdoor digital display, CCTV system etc. – require AC grid power.
Include recently also installed the first Steora smart bench in Madrid, located at Parquesur shopping and restoration centre.
Include has over 1,000 installed products now 44 global markets on five continents in over 260 international cities. The company and founder Ivan Mrvoš have won global awards, including from the European Parliament, Deloitte and Forbes.
In May, Include had the most successful Croatian crowdinvesting campaign ever on the Funderbeam platform just six days after launching their second investment round reaching their target of €1.2 million with 290 investors from 21 countries.
