People want to be in control of their lives so they can live the way they imagine. Hailo is a little bit of fightback against the forces of the universe that seem to always stand in the way you want things to play out - a perfectly synchronized state of flow where lights are always turning green just as you approach, where empty turnstiles usher you through an otherwise crowded station just in time to meet a train arriving at the platform, and where taxis seem are drawn to you by a magnetic and mysterious force. We help give taxi drivers a voice and help them to make their passengers fall in love with taxis again.
Founded by three taxi drivers and three internet entrepreneurs, Hailo has raised over $50M from the best investors anywhere, including Union Square Ventures, Accel Partners, Wellington Partners, Atomico Ventures, Sir Richard Branson, and Janice, our CEO's mother. – less
