Startup Business Name: HereYouGo Technologies, Inc.
Tagline: we split ownership of self-driving cars
Founder/Founders: Konstantin Maslennikov
In a few sentences, tell us what your start-up is all about!: We going to solve problem of transport efficiency. And we want to concentrate on ownership first. All parked cars on the streets makes us disappointed. People bought a car, insurance and than just parked it and now pay for parking. People use cars less than 1 hour a day. We are going to bring more sharing economy to transportation. Many companies does it but we still see many problems – traffic jams, parking hunting (up to 30% traffic in big cities) so we decided to concentrate on self-driving cars as it will have different economy and no big players on that market yet. We building a platform to buy self-driving car or share of it (there is no point to build it for usual cars as those services already exist – Getaround, Turo, Uber), to make money on ride-sharing and to ride it when you need. We believe that our business will make possible for people to switch from fear of the autonomous driving technology to joy of profitability and of convenience. When autonomous cars will be available for open market we will have a platform and first beta users. Our next step will be crowdfunding campaign where we will split ownership of Tesla Model 3 among hundred or so users.
When was your startup founded? And what stage is your startup currently at?: March 2018, product development stage.
Let us know a bit about your team, who are the key team members and what is their role?: We had a terrific experience of work together with Alex. This is the guy who makes product and I am proud that we already worked together, we built transportation platform for my previous company – TakeBus, which I sold to the biggest transport corporation in East Europe. I helped him to organise workflow of his team also suggesting how to overcome technical difficulties. Alex always helped me with technical planning, attention to details and new creative technical ideas, which always inspired me.
If applicable, what is your growth like? And what milestones has your startup achieved so far?: We made research about self-driving and blockchain technologies in applications for automotive as a result we wrote white paper with our point of view. We made prototype splitting ownership of small RC robotics car between 5 people. Now we organising crowdfunding to buy Tesla Model 3. We made a video and created crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo, but haven’t launched yet. We also made technical planning and created mockups of mobile apps. We registered the company to get funding
Why did you choose this particular idea and concept to build your start-up on?: People need transportation, people don’t need to own the cars. We have an expertise in transport industry (our previous company TakeBus have been sold to large transport corporation). We also have bought and sold car in bay area – we know all the problems of car owners.
