Green Scooter to soon give Uber and Taxify a run for their money

Entrepreneur Fezile Dlamini is the founder of Green Scooter, a business aimed at bringing a new service to the ride sharing market.

Dlamini speaks to CapeTalk's Kieno Kammies about his entrepreneurial journey and how Green Scooter will be competing for its share of the pie along with Uber and Taxify.

Dlamini says he has tried to work with Uber before, kept on applying but that did not work. He then started working on his own idea which has led to the establishment of Green Scooter.

If you want something very bad you have to get up, get it and fight for it if you have to... It's not about how many times you fall down, it's about how many times you get up.

Fezile Dlamini, founder of Green Scooter

Green Scooter will be formally launched on the 1 September 2018. Dlamini is currently building his database of people who would like to join the business.

There are about 450 people who have already registered on the app and he is looking to hit a target of 5 000 by September.
