In todayโ€™s episode of ๐ŸŽ™โ€œIโ€™m a Millionaire! So Now What?โ€๐ŸŽ™ I talk with an entrepreneur using technology to disrupt what some might see as a โ€œtraditionalโ€ industry.

 

Andrea Chase is the founder and CEO of the taxi app: ProCabby LTD. ๐Ÿš•๐Ÿš•๐Ÿš•

 

The app connects drivers with passengers, and, as she puts it, โ€œโ€ฆgives them an opportunity to properly compete in the digital age.โ€

 

Her goal is to help old-school taxi drivers recover from the huge financial impact driving services like Lyft and Uber has had on them. ๐Ÿ’ธ๐Ÿ’ธ๐Ÿ’ธ

 

Her inspiration? A family member experiencing exactly that. ๐Ÿ‘†๐Ÿ‘†๐Ÿ‘†

 

We talk about the grind of โ€œhustle culture,โ€ VCs and funding, and the struggle of being a relatively fresh start up.

 

Have a listen!
