Godwin Gabriel is the founder of the ride-sharing app Moovn which was founded in Seattle, WA in 2015. This Tanzanian born, self-taught tech/business man taught himself how to code and how to develop software. The Moovn app, which is similar to the well-known Uber and Lyft is already in 8 U.S. cities including; Chicago, Portland, Boston, Washington D.C., Seattle, New York City, Atlanta, and San Francisco. The app is even available in international cities such as Nairobi, Kenya, Johannesberg, South Africa, Vancouver, BC, and Dar-Es-Salaam, TZ. In an interview with UrbanGeekz, Gabriel plans to expand Moovn to 20 more cities. between January and March 2017.

What makes the Moovn app different from apps like Uber in Lyft is that passengers have the option to choose different vehicles, ranging from motorcycles to bikes as well as having the option to schedule rides at least a month ahead. What also makes Moovn stand out is the fact that cash is accepted along with the usual debit and credit.

Since Uber and Lyft aren't available in the continent of Africa, I think it's amazing Moovn is bridging the gap and bringing opportunities to the Motherland. I'm so glad to hear this app is available in Chicago, because I will be giving it a try! Visit the website:
