Welcoming the announcement Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Richard Bruton TD, said,

iCabbi was founded in 2011 by three Irish Entrepreneurs. iCabbi provides taxi companies with the tools they need to compete against peer to peer apps like Uber and Hailo. iCabbi was approached by a taxi company who wanted to create a direct link between their independent taxi drivers and their customers. It became apparent that this was the real market opportunity; a B2B business, supplying revolutionary taxi dispatch software. In 4 years, the team has grown and focused on delivering projects for bigger taxi companies each time. By learning from the experts, iCabbi has now developed the most advanced cloud based dispatch system in the world.
