Komboa, Was Built To Challenge The Traditional Model Of Owning A Car, By Allowing Users To Rent Private Vehicles For Long-Term.
“We are firm believers in the sharing economy, where people are beginning to think differently about car ownership and mobility,” founder Eric Gisore told Disrupt Africa.“Having access to a car now does not necessarily mean needing a Private vehicle. Similarly, mobility is not restricted to one mode of transportation, with trips becoming more multi-modal.”
Bootstrapped thus far, Komboa has seen relatively slow uptake, but does have around 150 registered users.“We are in the process of marketing to car owners who are a very key component of our operations,” Gisore said.
Operating for now only in Nairobi, the startup plans on expanding to other major towns and cities in Kenya once it hits a threshold of 1,000 users on the platform. Komboa operates on a commission basis, taking 20 per cent on every transaction that takes place on its platform.
