About

Austin, TX is losing Uber and Lyft - this is a serious problem because drunk driving crashes and arrests have gone way down since these ridesharing companies came to town. We love these companies but we need to fill their place fast. Warp is a ridesharing service that will cost just as much to riders as Uber and Lyft but will pay drivers more and will donate 25% of its profits to local non-profits.

(To be clear - none of the Kickstarter funding will go to charity/non-profits...this is all to get the company functioning).

We need these initial funds to get the app up and running and get the word out about the service.

Thank you!

Risks and challenges

The biggest challenges will be to get the app ready for the demand and promote the new service properly. We don't just need to promote to riders, but we need to recruit as many drivers as we can.

I am qualified because I am committed to both keeping the city safe, having a great ridesharing service to use, and having it make the city better by giving a large portion of its profits to local non-profits that really need it.
