Update

Hello,

The Uber-Careem acquisition announcement of last week occupied much of our thoughts and no doubt, these are exciting times. This is a milestone moment for Careem and gives budding entrepreneurs several positives on the potential of the technology ecosystem in the Middle East. There is much responsibility on us now, given that we will be the second ride-hailing player in Dubai next only to Uber-Careem. 

At Hubun, we have come a long way since we last interacted and thought of dropping you a quick note to share where we are in our journey. We are moving at great speed, which sometimes is overwhelming. But we fully appreciate that this is a very opportune moment for Hubun and we will do everything to build on it. 

Here’s a quick snapshot of our business so far:

Community Update

Women are at the core of our proposition and we believe this service will help them chase their dreams and aspirations without having to give-up or temper down their career. Hubun is about building a brand that you can trust your kids with, that is safe and provides you peace of mind. Internally, more than 65% of our employees are women today and provides an opportunity to women drivers achieve financial independence

Among other things we hosted a breakfast dialogue last week for working mothers and women to discuss on how they can strike a balance between home and work. We had a panel of accomplished women speakers and had terrific attendance. We gained significant coverage through this event and are only expecting enquiries to grow significantly in the near future.
