Blacklane is an innovative marketplace that offers easy booking of first class on-order chauffeur services at economy prices in over 150 cities around the globe.
We ask for commission from rides booked through our platform.
None really – some would say on-demand taxi and limo apps, but we offer on-order chauffeur-service for business travelers with a high need for planning reliability, fixed prices and travel expense solutions.
We are the only truly global online booking platform for chauffeur services that can be booked in advance at a fixed price close to taxi rates – frequent travelers also appreciate the global coverage of over 150 cities worldwide.
We have received funding from several financial and strategic investors.
I was a Principal at Boston Consulting Group.
The idea for Blacklane was born in Chicago when I was working for BCG. I often used black car services and frequently had trouble with the booking process and travel expense management. Besides that, prices were usually out of this world and offers had local restrictions. I wanted to make such a comfortable product more accessible and affordable for frequent business travelers.
Marrying my wife, building a family with two healthy boys, and founding Blacklane with my co-Founder, Frank Steuer.
Having not founded Blacklane earlier.
Delicious Lindt chocolate. Once you’ve tasted the difference between ordinary chocolate (taxis) or overpriced luxury chocolate (traditional limousine services), you never go back to the ordinary and always stick with Lindt chocolate.
I find many start-up ideas thrilling, but none of them would be a better fit to me than Blacklane.
I’ll be here at Blacklane in Berlin working with very talented people and helping travelers around the world getting from A to B in style and peace of mind.
