From the CEO...

Woodside O’Brien delivered to RideScout, at probably the most critical time in the history of the company—time, talent, treasure, and trust. The WOB team invested a lot of their time getting to know our company. Not only did they bear down on our strategy and technology, they also took the time to attend many of our social and marketing events. When it came time to invest, they knew our team and potential well and knew how they would add value to us. Their investment in RideScout was very meaningful for us and it made them our second biggest investor in the company. Perhaps most importantly, there was strong trust between our teams. As West Point graduates and military veterans, we found the WOB team to have the highest integrity in everything they did.
