RelayRides CEO, Andre Haddad, shares an important company update as well as a special promotion to celebrate the July 4th holiday.
Today, I am incredibly excited to announce that RelayRides has raised $25 million in Series B funding led by our newest investor, Canaan Partners. To celebrate this major milestone for the company and to say “thank you” to the RelayRides community we are kicking off a never seen before promotion for our members.
A Testament to Our Community
This round of funding is a validation of the major changes and improvements we have made to the marketplace based on direct feedback from you, our community. Without you this would not have been possible. So, from all of us at RelayRides, thank you! Looking to the future, we will continue to seek out your feedback in order to bring improvements and innovation to the marketplace. We plan on using this funding to increase the awareness of peer to peer car sharing, introduce new renters and new owners to the RelayRides marketplace, step up our investment in customer delight, enhance our products and to expand into new geographies and services.
A RelayRides-Style Celebration for the 4th
To celebrate this company milestone and Independence Day, RelayRides is happy to offer all current and new members $20 off their next rental. Members can claim their credit by entering the promo code USA2014 on their RelayRides account page. Credit may be redeemed until end of day (midnight PDT) Friday, July 4th.
This is just one of the many ways we plan to continue to show our thanks for our passionate community—so expect more member appreciation parties and promotions in the future. Moving forward, continue to check in here for community announcements. Thanks for making our community so amazing!
