Did You Hear the One About the Two Crazy Engineers?

A couple of entrepreneur-engineers heard a common refrain. “I can’t find my driver at the airport! I wish there was an easier way!” Having faced the same problem–trying to pick out a rideshare driver in a crowd of look-alike sedans–they sympathized.

A few beers and a couple of conversations later, Qwykr Connect was born. It’s a simple solution to a not-so-simple, aggravating problem. From there, the product ideas flowed. Today we have beta customers, a board, and a tech team.

Our motto, with apologies to Niels Bohr: “Sure the idea is crazy. But is it crazy enough?”
