Jared and Luke have shared a passion for electric skateboards since a young age and was how they first met in college! Joining forces to build Lectec with the mission of providing hand on tools to explore and learn the incredible possibilities of STEM for the next generation - while having some fun in the process!
Jared has been a serial entrepreneur since the age of 15, creating his first company offering build-it-yourself (BIY) electric skateboard kits for adults (ridebkb.com). Last Christmas, he built an electric skateboard for his 7 year old nephew, Brian. Brian was so interested in how everything worked that Jared ended up taking the board apart to explain how everything came together to build the board he had so much fun on. And just like that, the idea for Lectec was born!
