Those ambitious teenagers have created a start up that competes with Amazon

There is no age to have a great idea and bring it to life. Those ambitious teenagers have created a start up that competes with Amazon: Lobu brings you a book by bike from the local library on the same day you ordered online.

The idea came up when Moritz Stephan from Viena realized that the book he ordered online was traveling nearly 600 miles while the book was potentially two doors away at the local library.

Why is it a great idea?

  • It’s simple (digital)
  • It’s fast (same day delivery)
  • It’s eco-friendly (lower carbon footprint)
  • It support the local businesses
  • It creates flexible job for students (Students are the riders)
