Hubun Update

JULY 2019



Q2 couldn’t have been more intense and exciting for Hubun! 1,000+ rides per month, 50+ rides per day, Android app launch were some of the key milestones we achieved in the quarter that went by. Hubun has gained significant traction and the demand has exceeded capacity at most times of the day. Also we have received multiple requests from potential investors to consider launching in other geographies such as Saudi Arabia, Malaysia, Iraq etc, which is a testament to the success and viability of Hubun.

True validation for us comes from our customers and their response has been extremely positive. 75% of our trips have received ratings from customers and 98% of those have been rated 4 or 5 star. It is heartwarming to read some of the comments left by our customers:

“The girls were safe and I have peace of mind”

“The driver was lovely and in a very good mood! What a good start of the day :)”

“Everything was fantastic, very coordinated Hubuna!”

We have already received 300+ booking requests for school year starting September 2019. We have a huge opportunity ahead of us and are working hard to capitalize every bit of it.

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


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:
