Our venture is all about creating an accessible, easy and safe platform to provide a better option for carpooling.
Carpooling is defiantly the new black. It’s an environmental, affordable, and fun way to commute. Our venture is all about creating an accessible, easy, and safe platform to provide a better option for carpooling. The idea is, that each one of you can choose the perfect match to ride with, based on your preference, job, age, gender, and even hobbies. That’s way, you will make sure that your driver is not just to bring you from one place to another but also a person you can trust, feel safe with, and connect to him.
Situations in Israel caused people to avoid carpooling since it can count as a risky and unstable way to transport. People are willing to feel safe therefore will mostly rather spending more money on a privet service or using their own car.
Think about dating Apps: find you the perfect match based on your personality and preference. That’s how we work, we are going to find each user the best options for him to drive with. While other carpool platforms are only trying to fulfill the actual need for transporting and do not get a high volume, we are giving the solution to the whole problem.
Simply- we want to get to know you. As a user, when you sign in , you will tell us about yourself and fill out a questionnaire that will provide us some information so we can know you better. Then, our algorithm will make a wide research to find you the best match.
The first challenge we are facing is to compete with big companies that already provide a finished product, have a large budget, and active costumers. The second challenge is the complexity of technology that is needed in the system, that combines maps, payment service, and the algorithm that make the perfect match.
In our vision, this product is aimed to be helpful for any person that needs to transport from one place to another. According to the survey that we have made, our product is useful and impact people that are willing to reduce car costs, someone who want to avoid wasting time looking for parking, people who care for the environment and etc.

While I’m writing this text, I now have a project finished for my exam. I have coded (C#) an application for the manager of the project (me) who is able to see all the details of the users of the application. The manager, who uses a Windows computer, can also change or add new users, new cars, or clear them. For that application I used Binding. The programs I used in that part calls to the DataBase programs, with SQL sentences.
There is also the website. In this website, the user can log in, register (if he’s a new user), and then to see his table of posts.
To finish, there is the application. This application is for IOS customers and android ones. They can log in to their accounts, register (if they are new customers), then they are able to see the posts in the application (the scheduled trips), their own cars, and they can add to the application a post or a car.
The next step in the application is to match customers. For that, the customer adds details of his life (age, hobbies, where does he work, where does he study…) and the application automatically matches between two clients who are corresponding, in order to create social connections between people. The step after is to make a security verification of each user. For that, the user enters details of where he lives, is he a part of a religious community… Then, someone (the manager) checks his details and rate the security of the customer from 1 to 10.
With these steps, the customers will know who they can travel with security, or who they can travel with to create social links.
The main thing we need to make this project a reality is a decent budget which will enable us to hire the most professional architects, designers and to make sure we are doing a big work in the marketing field so we can approach to as many people as possible.
