Year of entry: 2012
What does the company do?
Aventones promotes and facilitates the use of shared cars within communities of trust.
How did the idea come out?
We are a group of young people that seek a sustainable solution to traffic problems in cities. Aventones started as a side project in Mexico City and Monterrey. In Mexico City, Nacho and Cristina realized that traffic was a growing problem and that cars were not used efficiently (next time you are stuck in traffic, count how many people go in each car). In Monterrey, our partners Innku Solutions decided to do something due to the effects of Hurricane Alex, in which people took up to three hours to get to their jobs. We met and decided to partner to have a greater impact. Innku Solutions would be the technological partner, and Nacho and Cristina would be the operational partners.
Where do you see yourself in 2 years?
I see the company being the main online platform to share the car in Latin America.
What do you like most about being an entrepreneur?
I like having the opportunity to generate a positive impact on society.
