Your Next One Hundred Cities. Today.
We take funded startups with heavy ground operations international.
We launch and grow new cities, massively expanding fleets. We hire incredible teams. We build ground operations that run like well-oiled machines.
We've done it before in every continent (ok, except Antarctica) with leading companies like Lyft, Groupon, Wind, and others.
We don't stop at telling you what to do in slides: we actually execute. For us, that's the fun bit.
Let's build your company next.
We've launched, grown, and optimised hundreds of cities for companies in ride-sharing, mobility, and e-commerce.
As executives in and consultants to funded startups (between us Wind, Lyft, Groupon, and Rakuten), we have solved the same recurring problems:
How can we launch to more cities?
How can we grow our suppliers or fleet?
How can we optimise inefficient local ground operations?
We've launched to cities in Asia, the US, Australia, and Europe, building experience in what to think about and where to get the right supporting data, and how to execute.
We've grown fleets of bicycles, rental cars, scooters to tens of thousands.
And we've optimised ground operations, building profitable cities in an era of perennially loss-making "unicorns".
Basically, we've learned a lot of lessons before, and are ready to apply them to your company.
What We Do
We help funded startups that are heavy in physical ops — like ride-sharing, vehicle-sharing, and e-commerce — grow internationally, and optimise their global operations.
We use our experience in growth and our proprietary data sets to not just decide where you should grow, but do it for you. We'll open the cities, hire the management teams, and get your first local customers.
Beyond that, we're all "people" people. For us, culture is everything. We hire teams that don't just bark on demand but who love doing what they do for the sake of their teams.
For this reason, we work with clients who are also people people. Growth isn't fun if it comes at the expense of people's lives.

We're still building out our website.
In the meantime, you can email us for more information about our rates. Think "what we'd pay to hire these people, plus a percentage to account for the fact that they're contractors".
Hope to talk soon.
