    HopSkipDrive is a mission-driven company with the goal of making life easier for busy parents by taking some of the stress out of their family's busy schedule while also creating an economic opportunity for women. We are a ride service for kids that helps busy families get their kids where they need to go safely and reliably when their parents can’t.

    We were founded by 3 working moms who have 8 kids between them and who developed HopSkipDrive as a solution to their own problems getting kids where they needed to go. We are a VC-backed company with investment and involvement from nearly every major LA investor including Upfront Ventures, Greycroft and Pritzker. We recently closed a $10.2M Series A led by FirstMark Capital, bringing total funding to $14.1M.

    We are based in downtown LA and are now helping families in three major geographies. Our mission, our enormous market potential, our team, and the technology challenges we are solving make HopSkipDrive one of LA’s hottest startups and an all-around awesome place to work.
