A $720,000 investment in WhereIsMyTransport, whose open data platform makes mass transportation in African cities more accessible, more efficient, and safer for poorer people.
WhereIsMyTransport addresses a key barrier to inclusive growth given the scale of lost productivity and impact upon the global poor.
Highly scalable model. By partnering with African cities and operators, WhereIsMyTransport can easily impact a large addressable market size. The underlying transit API can easily be adapted and scaled across cities, and open sourced platform increases number of data points, accuracy and awareness.
Strong management team with a demonstrated track record in South Africa, strong technical team and commitment to social impact.
This intervention also supports a number of the UN Sustainable Development Goals including: Goal 1 (No Poverty), 8 (Decent Work and Economic Growth), 9 (Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure) and 11 (Sustainable Cities and Communities).Apply for funding
