“Click A Taxi is the only taxi app you'll ever need, whether you're in Berlin, Malaga or Dublin" CEO and Founder Søren Halskov Nissen explains. "Wherever you go, you can expect to get a quality taxi service with no phone calls. We've done the hard work of selecting the best companies, all of which have been chosen based on quality, safety and pricing."
“We launched our first product, the free consumer app, only 12 months ago and we want to meet the growing demand for quality taxi transport across the world. Our latest round of funding will allow us to grow even faster and deliver an even better service to our users. We already have a great pipeline of new development features for travel businesses, taxi companies and end users rolling out soon,“ says Halskov Nissen.
New investor, serial entrepreneur Tommy Ahlers adds, “My experience from building ZYB and Podio taught me just how important it is to have a great idea, for a big market with a team that can do it - fast. Click A Taxi ticks these boxes and is a great example of applying clever digital solutions to an old industry. I am very excited to be part of this venture”.
