Imagine you could press a button on your phone and a trained driver can pick up you in your wheelchair and take you to your desired destination. On-demand mobility is something most of us have come to expect, but if you need some assistance or a specialized vehicle, it’s a different story with limited options. That’s where ButterFLi comes in. We’ve created a platform that links caring small businesses together into a network that can handle on-demand requests. It’s important to us to be able to give options to people who don’t always have a lot of options. Now everyone can go where they want to go.
Delilah Lanoix’s company has been transporting people with special needs for 18 years. She always wanted to be able to respond to on-demand requests, but even their healthy business was not big enough to make this a reality. Together with co-founder and software expert, Andy Downard, they created ButterFLi to build a network of hundreds of transportation companies who cater to the elderly and people with special needs, and provide an on-demand service.
