In today’s episode of 🎙“I’m a Millionaire! So Now What?”🎙 I talk with an entrepreneur using technology to disrupt what some might see as a “traditional” industry.
The app connects drivers with passengers, and, as she puts it, “…gives them an opportunity to properly compete in the digital age.”
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. 💸💸💸
Her inspiration? A family member experiencing exactly that. 👆👆👆
We talk about the grind of “hustle culture,” VCs and funding, and the struggle of being a relatively fresh start up.
Have a listen!
