|Description||Taxi marketplace on your smartphone|
Taxibeat is a groundbreaking smartphone application that transforms the taxi-hailing process into a direct marketplace between taxi drivers and passengers.
Taxibeat enables passengers to locate nearby taxi drivers and hail the driver they prefer, based on distance, user ratings, car model and on-board amenities, at no additional cost. All this information is made available to the passenger through the app.
Founded in Greece by Nick Drandakis, Nick Damilakis, Kostis Sakkas and Michael Sfictos in 2010, Taxibeat received its first seed funding in February 2011 and launched its Athens operation in May. Eighteen months later, Taxibeat is available in 5 countries and 6 cities around the world. Taxibeat has so far raised more than EUR 1 million and is close to completing its Series A funding.
Taxibeat is available on iOS and Android platforms and online at www.taxibeat.com/now.
