Aidan Smith & Connor Read

24 July 2023

BE(Hons) Mechanical Engineering 2018 & BE(Hons) Mechanical Engineering 2017

Co-Founders of Shutl


A shared passion for emerging technology, and building a brighter future, was the catalyst for Aidan Smith’s and Connor Read’s partnership.

Co-founding Starc Developments, a consultancy focused on the removal of waste by designing sustainable solutions, was just the beginning of the duo’s innovation. Aidan and Connor have co-founded a new venture, Shutl, to electrify urban journeys. Shutl changes how our cities move by working with government, businesses, and individuals, to transition urban trips to using new forms of light electric vehicles (LEV). Parcels, pias, and parking wardens will all be moving on a Shutl LEV.
