In 2014 we started Swoop with a vision to transform the local roadside assistance and towing industry. Nearly everyone has had a nightmare experience with a flat tire or breakdown, and we were no different. While other businesses like Uber were transforming local transportation, local towing was lagging behind. We asked the question if I can know exactly where my Uber driver is as they approach, why can't I know where my tow truck is when my car breaks down? We set out to solve this problem by building SaaS for local towing companies, and we recently joined forces with Agero, the market leader in Roadside Assistance to bring our service to 80M American drivers.
What We Do
Swoop builds software for local towing companies. We power hundreds of towing companies on serve tens of thousands of customers on a daily basis. Our parent company, Agero, is the market leader, providing roadside protection for 80M Americans and performing 12M roadside services annually. As a connected vehicle service, we are in deep discussions with leading car manufacturers about their connected and autonomous vehicle experiences.
Who We Are
We are a team of 29 people (& growing!) passionate about re-inventing the roadside industry, a real world problem for tens of millions of drivers annually. We're located in the heart of San Francisco, and were previously backed by Founder Collective, Slow Ventures, SV Angel, and Entree Capital, and now we're backed by a large, profitable, and stable business that has committed to our growth and technology.
