About the company

Who we are:

OXO - it’s like Airbnb and Tesla had a lovechild

We help people who commute to work by car save time and earn money by connecting them with gig-economy drivers who rent their vehicles during the day to drive for Uber/Lyft.

Parked cars are an unbelievable waste of valuable resources: people’s time, prime real estate and the costly vehicles themselves. And the experience? Horrible. OXO flips this. We use cars more efficiently; free parking lots for alternative use and create employment opportunities every day.

OXO is a young and fast-growing startup fresh out of Stanford. We are bridging the gap to an autonomous future and we want your help.
