In 2018, the DPAA did an amazing job of recruiting 30 new members (you can see them all here with one click).
Kickstarting that recruitment drive this year is San Francisco-based Firefly.
Firefly claims to connect people, governments and businesses to build smarter, safer and more sustainable cities. It places digital screens on the top of a rideshare vehicle with a roof rack and sells advertising.
Founded by Kaan Gunay and Onur Kardesler, Firefly is located in San Francisco and backed by notable investors including NFX, Pelion Venture Partners, Decent Capital (Tencent founders), Stanford’s StartX Fund, Chesterfield Investments, Industry Ventures, Muse Capital, Cross Culture Ventures, and individuals including Lime founders Toby Sun and Brad Bao, Jeffrey Housenbold (SOFTBANK Vision Fund) and Patrick Schwarzenegger.
