Description

If you have ever traveled or live in a city you most likely have used a rideshare app like Uber or Lyft. They are convenient, affordable, and easy to use. Most of the time it's a great experience that is beneficial to both the rider and the driver. However, one question comes over time and time again. How safe are rideshare apps and what are companies like Uber and Lyft doing to create a safe space for everyone that uses these tools?

Syed Gilani and the team at Safr felt like they could answer this question and build a better App for women and others who don't feel safe using the existing tools. In today's conversation, we chat with Syed about how their approach to rideshare is creating the safest, most secure riding experience in the industry. He answers the question 'Why truly reliable and safe transportation for women is so hard to find?' He also shares the complexity the COVID-19 pandemic has brought to the rideshare space.

Later in the conversation, we discuss the world of startups, app development, startup funding, entrepreneurship, and more.
