Ride-share Technology Comes to Carpooling Thanks to Scoop Technologies

| November 10, 2017

Scoop Technologies

The sharing economy is on a roll with Scoop Technologies, a fast-growing mobile carpooling service that offer commuters a convenient way to commute to work.

Here’s the…scoop! Scoop Technologies seeks to dramatically improve the daily commute by bringing co-workers and neighbors together to enjoy a smooth carpooling experience — unlocking new opportunities to create friendships, improve their well-being, and make the most of their valuable time. Scoop Technologies also partners with competitive employers to deliver a flexible and fully managed program that empowers every employer to foster a more energized, engaged, and productive workforce.

In addition, Scoop t has recently closed a $20 million B round led by Brook Porter at G2VP and a previously unannounced $11 million Series A led by Danny Rimer at Index Ventures, bringing the total financing to $36 million. Brook Porter and Danny Rimer have joined the Scoop Technologies Board of Directors. Dan Shapero, VP of LinkedIn’s Talent Solutions, Careers, and Learning businesses, also has joined the Board of Directors as an Independent.

“Our vision is to enrich millions of people’s lives by helping them choose to make their commute a meaningful part of their day,” said Rob Sadow, CEO and Co-Founder of Scoop. “This new round of funding will enable Scoop to bring convenient carpooling to commuters across the nation.”

Since launching in 2015, Scoop has helped thousands choose carpooling as their daily form of commuting. To date, carpoolers have taken close to 2M individual Scoop trips. Scoop is currently available to commuters who work in the San Francisco Bay Area and Seattle, and will be expanding into new cities around the country.

The Scoop product is designed around people’s commute schedules, with a feature set that makes carpooling a smooth experience: reliable door-to-door pick up, efficient routing, and payment inside the app.

In contrast to traditional carpooling, Scoop doesn’t just find you a permanent carpool. The carpools made by Scoop are flexible and reflect the changing schedules of commuters.

Integral to Scoop’s business model are its employer relationships. Scoop partners with major employers, office parks, and local governments to offer employees a convenient commuting solution. Partners include LinkedIn, T-Mobile, Symantec, Workday, Applied Materials, and many more.

Scoop also partners with public organizations and transit agencies across the country. In a study done of hundreds of Scoop commuters, the statistics show Scoop’s huge impact on work, life, and more.
