What differentiates Careem is the authenticity of the mission: to simplify and improve the lives of people and to build an awesome organization that inspires. It’s the soul that keeps the heartbeat going and ambitions high. We touch about 2M lives  everyday. The region that we serve has 500M people, so there is a 250x room for growth. We see this enormous opportunity as a trust, a privilege, and a blessing to be in a position to positively transform people’s lives. As a young and growing everything app, we are constantly in a race against time. Similar to how you have professional athletes, Careem makes you an athlete professional, requiring the endurance and excellence of champions, pushing the envelope, with a diamond will.
