SME of the Week


Congratulations to advanced motorcycle manufacturer ARC, who are our SME of the week. The midlands firm has secured investment to launch the “world’s most advanced e-motorcycle”, the Vector, from Mercia Fund Managers’ EIS funds; the MEIF Proof of Concept & Early Stage Fund, managed by Mercia and part of the Midlands Engine Investment Fund; and Jaguar Land Rover’s venture capital fund, InMotion Ventures, as well as a number of private investors.


Arc is based in Coventry and was founded by Mark Truman, who has spent two years developing the Vector bike with a team of top engineers. The Vector was unveiled at the Milan Motorcycle Show and aims to be the cleanest, safest and most fulfilling motorcycle on the road. The motorcycle is accompanied by a connected helmet and ‘intelligent’ rider jacket which creates a ‘human machine interface’, feeding the user important information when riding.
