Project area: Ride hailing app
Project name: Roll out and expansion of ride hailing services coverage
Company/Promoter description: Super Boda Limited is a ride hailing company that runs off the Super Boda App. The app currently has 70 registered riders and 375 registered users. Super Boda targets to operate in all the newly-established cities of Uganda. Currently, the company services have been pioneered in Fort Portal.
The Super Boda app bears multifunctional versatility aided by GPS auto-navigation, cash-less transaction support and remote real-time tracking of package delivery orders. Super Boda riders receive training in road safety, bike maintenance and customer care. The company also equips them with passenger hair nets and spare
Project Description: Preliminary research by Super Boda in Fort Portal City established that widespread informality in the motor cycle taxi business directly contributes to high levels of accidents, poor customer services and high-risk social behaviour among riders. Apart from physical training, the company uses its app tools, such as GPS, to deepen accountability and encourage safety. The app also enables orderly conduct of business by riders and offers a predictable, reliable means of getting passengers. Idle time, low earnings and lack of professionalism are also minimised.
Project objectives: Super Boda is seeking a partner to fund the expansion of the coverage of its services to other locations in Uganda. The company will use the financing to train riders in road safety and traffic regulations, bike maintenance and customer care, purchase of helmets and the construction of a training institute.
Project cost: EUR 20,000
Promoter contribution: Administration and management of the business.
Partnership Request: The company is seeking a partner to finance expansion and also evaluate its current business operations.
