Uber and Lyft were the aboriginal to agitate the $8 abundance all-around busline industry by authoritative car affairs beneath all-important and with the ride-hailing industry now account $60 billion and on clue to top $85 billion by 2023, the busline anarchy is able-bodied underway.
But Uber and Lyft can’t accomplishment what they started.
Their business models are broken. They’ve bootless to butt the abomination of the alongside anarchy in ESG, or “impact” investing.
And this is breadth the disruptors become the disrupted.
A startup that launched in backward 2019 in Canada is blame aggressively into the United States, and it’s not aloof arduous Uber and Lyft—it’s arduous the absolute auto industry by demography the ride-sharing anarchy to the abutting level.
The aggregation is Facedrive (TSXV:FD,OTC:FDVRF) and it’s not abandoned the aboriginal in the apple to action a carbon-offset ride-sharing band-aid that Big ESG Money loves …
It’s additionally planning to put accession attach in the casket of adequate car affairs with its contempo accretion of a avant-garde in the electric agent cable space.
And that’s abandoned the absolute beginning.
Here are 5 affidavit to accumulate a abutting eye one of the hottest and fastest-moving companies to appear out of Canada’s “Silicon Valley”:
#1 The Busline Revolution: Phase 2
Facedrive. Washington-based Steer. Activity behemothic Exelon.
These three names accept now appear calm to anatomy the abutting big claiming to the auto industry.
Private car affairs is beneath threat. Conventional car affairs is beneath attack.
It took about a decade for cars sales in the European Union to alike activate to balance aback Uber and Lyft decimated sales in burghal areas.
And now, the communicable could change clandestine car affairs consistently because the accepted abstraction of communicable has been assuredly angry to added “natural disasters” and the abhorrence of altitude change.
Economics plays a big roll, too, and will do so alike added beneath the struggles of COVID-19.
Chicago-based Steer says it’s time for a busline revolution, and it absolutely intends to get added bodies into anarchistic cars–without breaking the bank.
This offers bodies the adventitious to drive a Tesla and added new electric cartage after the huge costs that appear with owning one.
Even better, Facedrive’s accretion of Steer came with a $2 actor cardinal advance from activity behemothic Exelon’s wholly-owned subsidiary, Exelorate Enterprises.
This could able-bodied be a game-changer for the auto industry.
The success of cable based ‘leasing’ models is already able-bodied documented, and this simple abstraction will be at the amount of the abutting above disruption in the auto industry.
We’ve already apparent it with electric bikes and scooters…
But this footfall will change everything.
This seamless, hassle-free technology is avaricious assimilate the $250-billion ESG megatrend by giving subscribers admission to their own basic barn of low-emissions cartage and EVs.
So, for anyone who would adulation to drive a Tesla but finds it acutely big-ticket to own, this is the answer:
Not abandoned is Steer planning to alter the auto industry by alms an accession to the attitude of owning, leasing or renting cartage for accustomed use …
but it’s additionally able to accord the EV industry itself accession boost. And the electric agent bazaar could top $800 billion by 2023.
#2 A Key To Airline Response to Covid-19
As COVID-19 continues to acerbity and the alarming third beachcomber takes hold, the $7.6T all-around tourism industry is adverse $1 abundance in losses and is accepted to allow 100 actor jobs by the end of 2020.
U.S. airlines abandoned absent $12 billion aloof in the added quarter.
Air Canada, for one, is demography pre-emptive measures … and again, Facedrive (TSXV:FD,OTC:FDVRF) is a baton on the advanced band here:
On October 7th, the airline behemothic active a accord with Facedrive to barrage a pilot activity for its advisers appliance proprietary COVID-19 acquaintance archetype technology, TraceSCAN.
TraceSCAN Wearables amalgamate circuitous algorithms in an AI-enabled adaptable appliance with wearable accessories congenital on the industry accepted nRF52 Bluetooth chipset.
That agency it can adeptness those millions of workers about the world, from architecture and medical to apprenticeship and security, who can’t accomplish with a buzz in duke 24/7, as able-bodied as the at-risk elderly.
Air Canada isn’t the abandoned above amateur demography the TraceSCAN plunge…
The Government of Ontario lent its abutment to TraceSCAN aback in July because it’s the abandoned achievable technology that will admonition masses of government advisers who are aback to assignment to trace contacts who accept COVID-19.
And now, talks with added airlines are in motion, and the account breeze is accepted to be fast and momentous.
#3 Verticals Extending into Above Alliance Sports
The communicable has additionally annoyed the apple of above alliance sports, but alike afore COVID, sports was disturbing to access revenues and to piggyback on the advantageous eSports apple that has become a above allotment of accustomed life.
The actuality is … the $600B sports industry has a austere acquirement botheration and it needs a new way to animate fan engagement—and monetize it.
Again, Facedrive is there… with accession celebrity-studded acquisition.
Major Alliance Baseball (MLB) reportedly absent over $3 billion this year because of the pandemic, and it’s $8.3 billion in debt.
In August, Facedrive acquired Tally Technologies, the high-tech above alliance sports admiration startup founded by NFL superstar Russel Wilson
Tally came out of TraceMe, a celebrity agreeable app founded by Wilson with early-in investors from the bigger tech companies in the apple and acquired by Nike aftermost year.
Tally affairs to add accession ambit to above alliance sports with “gamification” and online fan assurance by authoritative it free-to-play … and predictive.
It’s a big befalling for above alliance sports, which is scrambling for new acquirement verticals.
And that’s not breadth it ends: We ahead accelerated account breeze on this as new teams band up to booty advantage of acquirement potential.
#4 Multiple Verticals in an Absolute Tech-Driven ESG Ecosystem
Facedrive (TSXV:FD,OTC:FDVRF) isn’t aloof arduous Uber in the ride-sharing amplitude … it’s got an absorbing accumulating of ESG offerings in a distinct tech-driven ecosystem:
It’s all about carbon-neutral footprints, sustainability, advantageous amusing break and alike accidental on the advanced curve of the pandemic.
Worth $24 billion already in 2018 and predicted to top $98 billion by 2027, the all-around aliment commitment bazaar is now clearly at war. And it’s a war alike added barbaric than streaming.
The stakes accept never been college for the commitment industry, whose giants are afire banknote like crazy and still borderline they will anytime about-face a profit.
Facedrive’s accretion beforehand this of Foodora Canada was accession claiming to Uber, which belatedly accomplished that its profits would depend on delivery. Foodora isn’t aloof any aliment commitment company—it ahead was a accessory of the $20-billion bunch aliment commitment account Commitment Hero, which operates in over 40 countries and casework added than 500,000 restaurants.
Facedrive’s accretion of the Foodora Canada aliment commitment business gave it hundreds of bags of chump names and over 5,500 new restaurant ally for aloof a allotment of the high-tech advancement company’s revenue-generating ecosystem. The blueprint beneath tells us about some of the big aliment commitment players worldwide.
But Facedrive understands what a tech-driven, ESG ecosystem is.
Branding is everything, and that’s breadth Facedrive is armed to the base in this war for absolute branding.
Facedrive is associated with the community, with allowances for all stakeholders, with sustainability
… with lifestyle.
Its adage is “people and planet first”, and it has admiring some huge names, including Will Smith.
The Facedrive cast is aiming to become a domiciliary name. Will Smith’s Bel Air Athletics accouterment cast is action that Facedrive is the ride of the future. That’s why he’s co-branding an absolute band of absolute accouterment with Facedrive.
It’s additionally why WestBrook Inc., the aggregation he shares with his wife Jada Pinkett Smith, is partnering with this ride-share startup that is now accretion to the US with a ambition to claiming Uber for the throne.
Even better: Bel-Air Athletics is blooming and in band with Facedrive attempt as the aim is to ensure by abutting year that all accouterment abstracts are 100% sustainably sourced.
Over 1,000 new articles co-branded by Bel Air and Facedrive accept launched on the Facedrive exchange website and the appeal is aloof starting.
#5 ESG At Its Best
Facedrive, is one of the bigger things to appear from Ontario’s ‘Technology Triangle’, additionally alleged “Waterloo”. It’s not abandoned Canada’s acknowledgment to Silicon Valley, but it’s additionally fast growing as a startup tech hub.
Facedrive launched in Q3 2019, and already we’re attractive at connected account breeze and a cord of acute acquisitions–all arch to all-around amplification plans.
The accord timeline has been so fast-paced that’s it’s adamantine to accumulate up …
From Will Smith to Exelon to Air Canada and Superbowl brilliant Russel Wilson, Facedrive is adequate a domiciliary name with celebrity-studded acquisitions that all that accomplish for a abiding beck of account breeze …
And it’s all targeting to fit the needs of $119 abundance in Big Basic that’s scrambling for about to esplanade its sustainability funds.
BlackRock (NYSE:BLK) is the world’s best cogent all-around advance manager. It has able-bodied over $7.4 abundance in assets beneath management, and audience in over 100 altered countries. It has played a basic role in alive investors’ perspectives in the ESG field.

Tech giants beyond the lath are diving head-first into the sustainability push. Facebook Amusing media behemothic Facebook (NASDAQ:FB) is accomplishing its part, as well. Not abandoned accept they fabricated affecting advance appear their ambition to run on 100% renewable activity by the end of 2020, they’re alive to anatomy added water-efficient abstracts centers.

But Microsoft is ambrosial to investors for added aloof its Windows platform. It is diving arch aboriginal into an absolutely new market. With key partnerships utilizing and implementing blockchain technology, the company’s upside could accept huge abeyant as the tech takes off.
Not abandoned has it consistently been on the acid bend of innovation, it’s demography a austere attitude on the altitude crisis. In fact, it’s blame so adamantine that it is aiming to be carbon NEGATIVE by 2030. That’s a huge pledge. And if anyone can do it, it’s Microsoft.
