Black Entrepreneur Launches Ride-Sharing App To Compete With Uber
Uber and Lyft are now facing some major competition after Tazanian-born entrepreneur decided to launch Moovn to bring something new to the ride-sharing app world. According to Urban Geekz, Godwin Gabriel’s app is already taking off in Africa.
Moovn is a ride-hailing app that is currently operating in 7 U.S. cities and has plans to rapidly expand in both western and emerging markets. Founded by Tanzanian-born Godwin Gabriel, the mobile application also operates in 3 cities in Africa: Johannesburg, South Africa; Nairobi, Kenya; and Gabriel’s home city, Dar-es-salaam, Tanzania.
The entrepreneur admitted that his initial launch was “amateurish at best” and states, “It wasn’t until we received investor backing that I was able to hire and collaborate with a team of seasoned developers to transform the platform into what we have today.”
Gabriel says targeting African residents has been a focus since smart phone usage is up in the continent:
It is also a chance to do business in markets that hadn’t been explored by big name brands. “I believe Moovn is changing lives – particularly in Africa and developing markets,” he says. “For instance, drivers earn more on our platform, are reducing idle time and are able to provide and build their communities.”
