If you haven’t heard yet, Getaround (a person to person car sharing service) just won TechCrunch disrupt 2011! Getaround allows anyone to rent their own cars out to approved parties – i.e. anyone can start their own car rental company – great stuff
This is significant for this city since two of the company founders, Sam Zaid & Jessica Scorpio are from Ottawa. Before Getaround, Sam was involved in founding Apption Software & Gazaro and Jessica founded IDEAL in addition to having worked for the PMO.
