Our goal at Ridejoy is to make it easy and fun to share rides with friendly people. If you’re going on a trip, you can list extra seat space in your car, and if you need to get somewhere, you can find a ride. It’s like carpooling, but fun. And it works.
We’re proud to announce today that we’ve raised seed funding from investors including Freestyle Capital, Lerer Ventures, Founder Collective, SV Angel, Start Fund, Y Combinator, Ben Ling, Owen Van Natta, Joshua Schacter, Seth Goldstein, Reinmkr Capital, Jared Kopf, and Jade Wang. You can read more at Techcrunch, WSJ, AllThingsD, and the SF Chronicle (press release).
We’re happy to have such a great group of people backing us. We’ll let our lead investor’s website speak for itself:
Josh Felser and Dave Samuel are serially successful entrepreneurs with a passion for Internet startups.
When they’re not hustling for Freestyle, Josh and Dave revel in skiing, snowboarding, hiking, wakeboarding, playing poker, traveling to all corners of the world, and of course, Burning Man.
Here’s Josh, Dave, and a friend sharing a ride in a mutant art car on the playa:
