Creating a Sustainable Business Model for Open-Source Trishaw DesignsPublic
Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
Cycling Without Age (CWA), a non-profit organization with the goal of aiding the elderly, sells and distributes trishaws to their community and customers/chapters. Trishaws are cycles with a carriage in the front for passengers to sit. A challenge to CWA is that trishaws are not affordable in the Global South. A sustainable, open-source business model and a test of that business model were created to help CWA address this problem. These outline how CWA locations can choose available trishaw designs to build locally through different open-source options, based on the resources available to them.
