NC Company Overview
BlaBlaCar is a platform that helps people to arrange carpooling for long journeys. It can help a person who is looking to travel somewhere find someone who is making a similar journey, and then they can share the costs and travel together. This can be a great low-cost solution for people who need to get somewhere and don’t have their own car. It is a way for drivers to cut down the costs of trips they were making anyway and can help make a long journey by car more interesting and fun. The service even allows people to specify how talkative they are, so people can be matched up with someone they will enjoy the journey with.
BlaBlaCar is designed to offer as much security as possible, requiring its users to declare real identities and have full profiles, in order to make for a safe and trust-based community.
BlaBlaCar is based in Paris, France can be used via mobile app or through a browser.
As of May 2019, BlaBlaCar is backed by venture capital partners that include Accel Partners, Insight Ventures, Lead Edge Capital, Index Ventures, Baring Vostok and ISAI. It operates in 22 countries, including Mexico, Brazil, India, Russia and much of Europe.
