CTIA Startup Lab Picks Urgent.ly!

CTIA Startup Lab Picks Urgent.ly!

Well not to boast, but… We’ve been selected as a finalist in the inaugural class of Super Mobility Week, CTIA Startup Lab’s program to boost promising mobile startups. Read the press release here.

We’ll be presenting next month in Las Vegas along with other “seed” and “growth stage” mobile startups in front of industry leaders, venture capitalists and the public. (Come see us!)

Said Robert Mesirow, CTIA Vice President and Show Director: “These startups are perfect examples of the creativity of the best minds, and I’m looking forward to seeing the next ‘hottest’ and ‘coolest’ products and services there.”

We’d like to thank CTIA and the mobile community leaders who nominated us as well as the CTIA Investor Panel who made the final selection.

Many individuals and local authorities have already jumped on the opportunity to remind users to drive safely. There are even signs popping up on highways to encourage safer driving.

Luckily, there are tools out there to help the tech-obsessed (or the poke-obsessed) improve their driving. One of our favorites is an app called TrueMotion Family! The app analyzes your driving in order to provide you with a score - and insights as to how you drive. It's perfect for parents who want to monitor their teen drivers. The app gives parents the power to see where their kids drive, and produces a 'report card' on their driving in addition to an assessment of whether they were driving distracted (using their cell phone). Plus, families have access to roadside assistance on-demand from right within the TrueMotion app.

I don’t remember Ash, Misty, or Brock driving cars in their quest to be the very best, like no one ever was. And there aren’t vehicles any in PokemonGO. At Urgent.ly, we love the game and just like you, we’re prepared to travel across the land searching far and wide to catch 'em all, but we encourage you to put safety first in your travels! Remember that the power of Pokemon is awesome in augmented reality but automobiles are a powerful tool meant for use in the real world and require optimum focus to operate safely. In a world we must defend, you can start by driving safely, and catch and train ‘em all when you’re not operating a vehicle.

We’ll get you back on the road
