Jacksen Love & Nick Hyland

Co-Founders of Flamingo Scooters


Jacksen and Nick are the masterminds behind micro-mobility company Flamingo Scooters. Founded in May 2018, their aim was to reduce reliance on cars, ease congestion on roads and help people get around their city in a fun, safe and easy way.

They launched in Wellington in June 2018, and in July 2018 they launched their fleet of 500 scooters on the streets of Auckland. Flamingo rolled out in Christchurch shortly after, becoming the first e-scooter company to operate in all three city centres. They’re also the only New Zealand owned and operated player in the market.
