After working for five years in American firms such as Yahoo, Bassem Bouguerra decided to return to his country, Tunisia, where he launched a start-up shortly before the Covid-19 pandemic.

IntiGo is an e-mobility solution developed by a Tunisian start-up. It allows users to book taxi scooters and vehicles for hire for their errands and package deliveries.  The Tunis-based startup was founded in 2019 by Bassem Bouguerra and Nebil Jridet. Since its launch, it has raised $1.6 million to develop its technology, expand its offerings and accelerate its growth in Tunisia, among other things.

"We provide our customers with comfortable and [most modern] cars. We also offer coupons and do not increase prices during peak hours," explained Bassem Bouguerra.

Via its mobile application -available for Android and iOS devices, users can signup to access its services. For a lift, users enter their destination and get quotes for every transportation means available. Then, they can choose the means they want and even filter based on drivers’ ratings or the nearest ride.  

In addition to urban transportation, the startup deals with package, grocery, and food delivery. It has seven warehouses where items can be stored. During the coronavirus pandemic, the startup recorded a boom in the number of weekly deliveries. But, after that period, it went from an average of 2,000 to 600 deliveries weekly. 

By 2023, IntiGo was claiming more than 200,000 runs and 60,000 app downloads. According to Play Store statistics, its Android app has been downloaded more than 50,000 times, which corroborates the figures put forward by the start-up. IntiGo has expansion plans but, it wants to wait for the right timing, the right destination, and the right product that can compete in international markets.
