Heetch is a mobility service which launched in September 2013 in Paris and has seen strong growth ever since. Thousands of rides are made in France, Belgium, Morocco, and Algeria everyday. We are now expanding our business in Angola 🚀. With more than 2 million users in Europe and Africa, we’re proud to be amongst the most dynamic start-ups in those countries. Our objective is simple: Make mobility easy and friendly. Our ambition is to become the french and portuguese speaking countries ridesharing leader in Africa. It's a big challenge since the markets are all very different and we'll have to adapt locally to different cultures and regulation. Our mission ? There are too many cars on the road due to car ownership and company vehicles which are pretty common. Let’s get rid of those cars and offer a friendly ride-sharing platform !
