See Jane Go Named 2016 Top Ten Automotive Startup by Automobility LA & LA Auto Show

New Women-Driving-Women Ride-Hail App Allows Women to Grab a Share of Multi-Billion Dollar Ride-Hail Industry, See Jane Go Receives Prestigious Accolade in the Automotive Industry

LAGUNA HILLS, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 09/22/16 -- See Jane Go, Inc., the first commercially launched women-driving-women ride-hail service, today announced it has been named one of AutoMobility LA and LA Auto Show's 2016 Top Ten Automotive Startups. Winners were selected based on a combination of the following criteria: vision, innovation, broad applicability, the likelihood of adoption/success, execution and management, determination, existing customers, partners and endorsers, revenue potential, business model and demonstrable product.

The first app to offer a ride-hail service designed exclusively for women, See Jane Go is creating a movement to provide a new, trusted option for women both as drivers and passengers. Launching initially in Orange County, Calif., See Jane Go offers women an alternative to existing ride-hail options where they may not feel comfortable getting into a car with a male driver. That said, See Jane Go is unique in that it won't exclude males from enjoying its service. In order to partake in See Jane Go, a male passenger will simply need to be hosted by a female passenger.

"Only 15 percent of Americans are early adopters of ride hail and one third of Americans are not familiar with existing ride-hail services. This creates ample opportunity for new market entrants that provide differentiation and value," said founder of See Jane Go and prominent wealth manager, William Jordan. "Additionally, only about 25 percent of drivers in the traditional ride-hail space are women. This illustrates a concern that might be causing them to be slow adopters of the driver opportunity. We are thrilled to have AutoMobility LA and the LA Auto Show recognize the market demand for See Jane Go and recognize us as a Top Ten Automotive StartUp."

This highly coveted honor sets 10 startups, including See Jane Go, apart from thousands of newcomers by placing products and services on AutoMobility LA's global stage touting each as the hottest startups to hit the new mobility scene. The roster of past winners includes companies such as HopSkipDrive, a rideshare service for kids, which garnered more than $10 million in investments after being named an award recipient.

With aggressive plans to expand to cities across the country, See Jane Go is available for download nationwide. To become a See Jane Go driver or rider, register today at www.seejanego.co. Interested investors are encouraged to visit the website to learn more about the investment opportunity.

About See Jane Go
See Jane Go was conceived during a conversation between Founder William Jordan and his daughter, Savannah, while driving home from an L.A. Lakers game. Savannah expressed interest in driving for an existing ride-hail service and William was adamantly opposed due to concern for his daughter's safety. The idea for See Jane Go, the first women-driving-women ride-hail app, was born. Today, See Jane Go meets the specific needs of female drivers and passengers in Orange County, Calif., with aggressive plans to expand nationwide. It is steered by an all-female executive management team and committed to providing women the opportunity to earn an income on their terms and a trusted ride-hail alternative for female passengers. Interested drivers and riders can join Jane's tribe online at www.seejanego.co.
