LITTLE, Kenyan ride-hailing firm owned by Craft Silicon and Safaricom would be launching in Nigeria and Uganda by the first quarter of 2017 according to a post on Techmoran.
Ridesharing platforms have become the latest fad in the Nigerian transport industry, with the launch of Uber a few years ago, there has been an increase in the number of ride-sharing platforms, with newcomers like Gomyway and CMC.
Speaking on this, Kamal Budhabhatti, CEO, Craft Silicon, said, “We are now only operating in Kenya but we are launching in Uganda soon. Safaricom is a good partner but they may not be in every market but we have to figure out how to grow the business to other markets. Craft Silicon operates in 45 countries globally and we are going to launch in all these countries even if Safaricom is not there. We are launching in Nigeria in the first quarter of 2017.”
With Little coming into the Nigerian market, we are bound to witness competition amongst the players in this industry, which would, in turn, benefit the customers.
Little is known for a few interesting features, like a lady friendly category, Lady Bug, with professional lady drivers to ensure women’s safety on the road also a corporate option through which businesses can offer Little Cab as a convenient corporate taxi option for their employees.
