Nicolas Brusson and Frederic Mazzella, BlaBlaCar

A session at LeWeb London 2013

Thursday 6th June, 2013

2:40pm to 3:00pm (GMT)

BlaBlaCar has taken traditional hitch hiking to a new level! BlaBlaCar was born one Christmas, when founder Frédéric Mazzella, a student at Stanford, wanted to get home to his family in the French countryside. He had no car. The trains were full. The roads, too, were full of people driving home, alone in their car. It occurred to him that he should try and find one of the drivers going his way and offer to share petrol costs in exchange for use of an empty seat. He thought he could do it online, but no such site existed... The adventure had begun!
