Travel Startups Incubator will invest $25,000 in Jolie’s new platform.
The startup Jolie has created an intuitive mobile app to connect travelers to chauffeurs in luxury transportation and lifestyle services.
Via the platform, traveling users can state beforehand how much they want to pay for a driver’s service. Travelers can also make any number of special requests, for example, if they want a snack, a meet and greet at the airport, or even their favorite chauffeur, they can be sure their needs will be met. At the same time, chauffeur are free to accept or reject incoming requests without incurring penalties.
“Jolie puts both the client and the ground transportation service provider in control. Service providers are able to maintain their brand and identity, and all providers on the platform are thoroughly vetted, giving the startup a network of trusted Chauffeurs,” said CEO and Jolie Co-founder Tricia Miranda.
“What’s unique and different about Jolie is that they are building technology and tools for professional chauffeurs to be able to compete against the Uber’s & Lyft’s of the world while launching a high-end consumer mobile app,” said Matt Zito, Managing Partner, Travel Startups Incubator.
“We are tapping into the new on-demand transportation and lifestyle services markets,” added Miranda. “With Jolie, we aim to bridge the gap in travel between the planning of transportation and lifestyle services. Clients can rely on our app to indulge in a luxurious experience when they travel in their home city or while traveling further afield.”
“We saw a winning combination of talent and experience in husband and wife team Jolie CEO Tricia Miranda and COO Edwin Miranda, who are working alongside highly experienced Co-founder and CTO Jon Lederman,” said Nicole Zito, Managing Partner of the incubator.
