Bundle is a peer to peer mobile application that creates storage and space solutions. Our mobile application will leverage people’s houses, garages, closets, guest rooms, sheds, storage facilities, parking space and even vacant lots, converting them into on-demand storage available to users on the mobile app. This will create an ecosystem where users can save money and find storage solutions that are tailored to them, and hosts can create passive income form untouched empty space.
ElecTrip is a no-compromise travel solution that offers door to door transportation between major cities located less than 4 hours apart in private, professionally driven Teslas with Wi-Fi and laptop charging on board. Using EVs allows us to reduce our operational costs to offer a superior service at a highly cost-competitive price. We have a fleet of 2 private Teslas and 17+ Teslas that we can borrow through our network. We currently have 6 drivers that are fully trained and doing consistent rides every week and 100 on our waitlist.
Saddle is a one-stop shop for multimodal Austin transportation, aimed at reducing congestion and keeping transportation spending local by making multimodal trip planning of Austin’s hometown mobility companies as convenient as getting driving directions.
THruck is a long-distance rideshare solution using the empty seat on commercial trucks. We are starting by connecting students who are seeking to travel out of town with truckers who have an empty seat on their freight vehicle and are going to or through the student’s destination city or town.
