Hailo is the evolution of the hail - a free smartphone app
status:VC Funded


People want to be in control of their lives so they can live the way they imagine. Hailo is a little bit of fightback against the forces of the universe that seem to always stand in the way you want things to play out - a perfectly synchronized state of flow where lights are always turning green just as you approach, where empty turnstiles usher you through an otherwise crowded station just in time to meet a train arriving at the platform, and where taxis seem are drawn to you by a magnetic and mysterious force. We help give taxi drivers a voice and help them to make their passengers fall in love with taxis again.

Founded by three taxi drivers and three internet entrepreneurs, Hailo has raised over $50M from the best investors anywhere, including Union Square Ventures, Accel Partners, Wellington Partners, Atomico Ventures, Sir Richard Branson, and Janice, our CEO's mother.

All of our developers are agile and able to move up and down the software stack, building the capability to support products.
