At NearMe, we are on a mission to resolve 'Mottainai' - the concept of waste in our society - and create a vibrant, sustainable future.
We develop and provide a versatile ride-sharing service, offering a range of solutions from airport transfers to daily commute assistance. Our service extends to diverse use-cases including golf commuting, school runs, and even hospital visits.
Through strategic collaboration with industry-leading corporations and local governments, we have successfully expanded our business across Japan. With a recent Series B funding of about 1.3 billion yen (totaling 2.3 billion yen), we are now geared up to scale our services exponentially.
