HashBang.TV Episode 9 - How to raise one of the largest A rounds in recent European startup history

Russ and Gary join the boys to tell the Hailo Hollywood script style story. Learn how three cabbies came up with the idea in a Covent Garden coffee shop, launched and spread the word amongst the London Black Cab community, and went on to raise one of the largest A rounds in recent European startup history.

Russ and Gary say Hallo to the Hailo Cab App and discover a Hollywood script style story – learn how three crafty cabbies came up with the idea in a Covent Garden coffee shop, launched and spread the word amongst the London Black Cab community, and went on to raise one of the largest A rounds in recent European startup history. The App is designed for you to get a Landan black cab wherever you are, whenever you want.Its one of those ideas that I expect everyone has had for Apps but it proves again that execution is EVERYTHING. Although, I do think they could have got the Lionel Richen song in their ads, Hailo....is it me your looking for.

I do love the fact that these were non tech guys who started using the iphone and just got the idea from that. No history and non geek. Larvely Jubbley.

James seems to have developed a serve case of the “yeah’s” during the interview. Tweet us (@hashbangtv) with the number of prizes, “yeah’s” for a prize! Otherwise enjoy the video.
