How Aussie start-up goCatch plans survival against Uber
JOHN MCDULING | 25 AUGUST 2015
Australia is desperately trying to foster a vibrant, viable start-up culture.
However, creating the types of companies that will dominate the future of commerce from a country like Australia is no easy feat.
Take Sydney-based taxi booking app goCatch, which is backed by some of the country’s most prominent investors, including Alex Turnbull (the son of federal Communications Minister Malcolm Turnbull), Seek co-founder Paul Bassat, small cap fund manager David Paradice, Square Peg, a technology venture capital firm backed by billionaire James Packer, and Tank Stream Ventures.
Last week, goCatch hit a significant milestone: more than 2 million taxi rides have been ordered using the app.
