|Booth DC Entrepreneur's Advisory Group
Monthly discussion about challenges facing an entrepreneurial business.
Registration Required: http://boothdceag-april2015.eventbrite.com
This month our speaker will be Ric Fleisher, co-founder of Urgent.ly, a venture backed startup that's been called "the Uber of roadside assistance" and "what AAA should have been all along."
From the website:
"Urgent.ly is building the fastest, safest and most cost-effective roadside assistance network in America. Designed for the on-demand generation, Urgent.ly leverages smartphone and GPS technology to match users to the nearest available servicer able to manage their vehicle and specific problem. Delivering unmatched transparency, the Urgent.ly app allows customers to track the real-time location of their service provider on a map, and offers both contact information and photo ID of the professional."
The company has already raised about $1.8mm in angel and pre-series A money. As always, we'll ask Ric to describe some of his current issues and opportunities, and we'll engage in another stimulating conversation.
The event is free and open to all. Our hosts at Wilson Sonsini will provide pizza and soft drinks to sustain us through the evening. I hope to see you there!
