Swoop Ride Share
What is it?

Our Founder first moved to Denver in 2016. He immediately noticed the need for a new solution to help with parking, traffic, air pollution, and public transportation. That's when Swoop was born!

Fast forward two short years and we're Denver's first connected lightweight electric vehicle ride-sharing company. Our mission is to empower citizens to lower their carbon footprint by providing them with a safe, affordable and thrilling ride-sharing experience.

There he learned how to work with international manufactures and developed critical relationships, while also understanding the development side of things when tt comes to software.

Mikayla Kerling - Many of Mikayla’s strengths come from her 10+ years in commercial vehicle management and her 5 years living in China. Mikayla is in charge of day to day operations and best practices, also negotiation as she can speak chinese fluently.
