Company Spotlight

Newchip Company Spotlight: Hoop Carpool

Nathan Lehoucq, CEO of Hoop Carpool

Nathan Lehoucq is the CEO of Hoop Carpool. HOOP Carpool is a startup that aims to promote carpooling in cities through a mobile application. Starting in Spain, it aims to expand to more countries, allowing its citizens to save costs, improve the comfort of their journeys and help to reduce congestion and pollution in cities.

Hoop Carpool will help cities to regain their stability and atmospheric balance directly. Thanks to the reduction in the number of vehicles in operation, the amount of CO2 emissions emitted by our vehicles will be impacted and noise pollution will be reduced, which has a negative impact on people’s health.

Through a user-friendly app, you can publish your journeys (as a driver) or search for journeys of other users to join (as a passenger). The price is calculated automatically, ensuring that the price is fair to both parties.
