Hey Obama, Where’s the Startup Visa in the Startup America Plan? (TCTV)

Hey Obama, Where’s the Startup Visa in the Startup America Plan? (TCTV) | The E-Business telescope | Scoop.it
Ankur Jain is the 20-year-old founder of the Kairos Society, a group that tries to discover the world leaders of the future and bring them together for support, mentoring and networking. He swung through San Francisco in between being named one of the partner organizations for President Obama's Startup America initiative and the Kairos Society's Global Summit in New York February 25-27, no doubt feeling as light and celebratory as this picture I found on his blog.

Voiturelib, service de location de voiture entre particuliers, boucle une levée de fonds

Voiturelib, service de location de voiture entre particuliers, boucle une levée de fonds | The E-Business telescope | Scoop.it

Voiturelib.com opère dans le secteur de l’autopartage et se positionne dans le courant de la consommation collaborative. Son concept: louer votre voiture pendant qu’elle ne sert pas (94% du temps en moyenne). 

 

Voiturelib annonce un second tour de table auprès de business angels, après celui de décembre 2010. Parmi eux, des entrepreneurs internet : les co-fondateurs de Covoiturage.fr, de Digitick.com, les fondateurs de Videdressing.com, C4M, Screentonic (racheté par Microsoft), WCube (racheté par Publicis)… Si le montant reste confidentiel, il s’agit clairement d’une levée en amorçage de moins de 500 000 euros. Cette levée va permettre à Voiturelib de renforcer son équipe de 3 personnes aujourd’hui.

 

La start-up revendique: 1500 locations réalisées sur les 3 derniers mois, 175K€ de transactions, et 150% de croissance par rapport au trimestre précédent. Elle propose 500 voitures disponibles à la location en région parisienne et 1500 en France.

Selon Paulin Dementhon, fondateur de Voiturelib, la France est l’un des pays les plus dynamiques au monde sur le secteur de l’autopartage. De fait, Voiturelib a aujourd’hui au moins 5 concurrents directs: Deways, Zilok, CityzenCar, BuzzCar , e-loue.com et Livop.

Comment marche Voiturelib: chaque propriétaire d’une voiture peut la proposer gratuitement à la location sur Voiturelib. Il indique les disponibilité de sa voiture, décide du tarif de location et est automatiquement couvert par l’assurance du site. Locataire et propriétaire signent un contrat de location téléchargé sur le site et Voiturelib reverse au propriétaire 70% du montant de la location. Les 30% restants servent reste sert à payer l’assurance et le fonctionnement du service.
