Once out of college, it was music entrepreneur. Then the world of sales came calling. Su believes all these experiences and aspirations led him to where he ended up...a tech startup founder. His first company: folded. The second, WeDidIt: acquired. So now he's back at it for a 3rd time, with his biggest vision yet.Su (short for Sulaiman) Sanni is Co-founder and CEO of Dollaride, a mobility company for communities that are under-served by public transit. Su points out that there are over 100 Billion trips globally every year facilitated by informal transit systems. These informal alternatives arose to fill the 'transit deserts' left under supported by formal, public transportation options.Yet, within the informal transit ecosystem, there aren't tools to efficiently match rider demand with the supply of drivers and vehicles. Dollaride wants to change that with their new app. They are starting in Su's backyard - the boroughs of New York City. And they are working with the well-known dollar vans who canvas the areas 'between' the subway stops. Guess where the company got its name?Su is our second founder in a row who is crushing his fund-raise using crowdfunding!Listen in to hear his story.MORE on SU AND DOLLARIDESU:@TheSuSanni [TW] Grind Fireside ChatDOLLARIDE:@Dollaride [TW]@Dollaride [IG] Founders Unfound: Like and share - help us grow!PODCAST TRANSCRIPT
