Getaround launched to the public in May 2011 at the TechCrunch Disrupt conference. The company currently operates rentals in Boston, Chicago, New Jersey, Portland, San Francisco Bay Area, and Washington D.C.
Similar to other car sharing services such as Zipcar, Getaround utilizes the economic principles of collaborative consumption. However, the peer-to-peer rental model doesn’t require the company to maintain a fleet of vehicles; rather, owners manage and maintain their own vehicles.
Getaround was founded in the summer of 2009 by Sam Zaid, Jessica Scorpio and Elliot Kroo. Zaid and Scorpio were attendees of the inaugural Graduate Studies Program of Singularity University. In May 2011, Getaround won the TechCrunch Disrupt NYC competition In February 2012, Getaround began serving Portland, Oregon with the aid of a $1.725 million Federal Highway Administration grant.
