Finnish start-up, split, is all set to grab a share in cab hailing business of India

Finland based ride-sharing start-up, Split is planning to make its grand entry into the Indian market. By grabbing a share in the app-based cab hailing business of India, Split is planning to give a tough competition to the well-funded players like Uber and Ola. Started operating in Washington DC, Split is also the owner of the technology used by on-demand bus ride provider in Helsinki, Finland.

According to Teemu Sihvola, Head of Concept Development of Split, the company’s priority is to stabilize its business in Washington DC and then enter into a big market like India. Sihvola has also promised that Split is going to provide better service than Uber which will benefit Indian commuters.

However the company will not offer door-to-door service. Passengers will not have specific pick up or drop points but to areas that are easily accessible from their designated destinations which will eventually save a lot of time and money of the customers.

Clean-tech is one of the leading business responsibilities that the entire world is undertaking right now and working towards to prevent environmental degradation. Due to this, many young individuals in Finland are taking the plunge to launch their new start-ups in the cleantech sector.Split is one of the most significant clean-tech start-ups in the world that is working to build a sustainable future.

Split along with many other start-ups like Linkker, Visedo, Virta and Eneron presented their respective products and services including electric buses and street lighting solutions at the Global Cleantech Summit that took place in Helsinki recently.

Moreover, several other leading Finnish clean-tech start-ups have already started their business in India.
