MAYDAY: Disrupting roadside assistance in Egypt

Finding yourself stranded due to car trouble is quite a common occurrence on the streets of Egypt and to make things worse roadside assistance services for the most part have very slow dispatch times, variable pricing and normally poor customer service protocols. MAYDAY is an Egyptian start-up that aims to close this gap by offering a reliable real-time roadside assistance service to motorists facing car trouble through a mobile application covering services that include tow trucks, tire change and battery jump start to name a few.

“MAYDAY has a mission to offer an exceptional service to its customers through utilizing live location tracking, fast dispatch of service providers, fixed pricing and a 24/7 customer care center helping get motorists safely back on the road in minutes.” Stated Mohamed Abo El Fotouh, MAYDAY Founding Partner.

MAYDAY is active across Cairo & Giza and operating 24/7 offering its services through various subscription models that fit every budget with the aim to also launch on-demand services in the very near future.

Within 4 months of its inception MAYDAY has successfully raised $20,000 in a funding round led by VFlock and capital injection from its founders. In addition, MAYDAY is currently incubated within the 2nd cycle of the MINT incubator organized by EGBank and Cairo Angels.
