Incubate + Develop + Entrepreneurs + Accelerate + Services

What is IDEAS?

IDEAS is Vandoit’s social cause: A business incubator/accelerator that will support your orgaånization as you launch or expand your mobile operations. Vandoit will provide a van whether it’s for:

  • mobile food service from the ritziest of areas
  • mobile food service from areas with food insecurity
  • refrigerated storage space for cosmetics
    a desk for packaging sweatshirts
  • mobile health services, an oven to bake dog treats
  • or anywhere in between, there is a van to support your mission.

With the IDEAS Program, the van provided will support your business or organization by giving you mobility tools that will help you create unique ways to spread brand awareness, sell products, or provide services. With the support of a Vandoit van, your business or organization will be able to go places it could not otherwise go. At Vandoit we are about driving IDEAS and ingenuity.

Why IDEAS?

Vandoit sees the power of supporting entrepreneurs because of your potential to transform your community from the ground up. To best serve you, we have created a product that is modular, allowing a small space to remain dynamic and transformable, and one that is durable, made of marine-grade materials that will stand the test of time and grime.

The IDEAS Program is our commitment to incubate, develop, or accelerate mobile entrepreneurship and services to greater heights through the use of our modular, multipurpose vans to support your mission.

During your tenure with IDEAS, the Vandoit Customer Relations Team will be on hand to answer questions and troubleshoot issues remotely.

Why Vandoit?

Vandoit is a brand owned by Kline Van and Specialty Rental. Kline Van evolved from Kline Motors, started by Woodrow Wilson Kline in 1947. Kline Van has upfitted passenger vans for companies for years as a natural extension of the business. Out of Kline Van, Vandoit was born to meet the demands of the adventure van and the van-life movement.

Vandoit used to partner with many social causes and still does for various events and campaigns, but after much thought, the team came to the conclusion that Vandoit is uniquely positioned to offer something simple but powerful that supports a variety of social causes: mobility.

As a participant in IDEAS, you’re not just receiving a modular van to expand your mission into mobile operations: You’ll also be partnering with a company that has 6+ years of experience upfitting 750+ overlanding vehicles. The team at Vandoit has become experts in designing reliable, modular, multipurpose vehicles that can go anywhere and do anything.
