"Our original idea was not to make self-driving cars. It is already a very, very competitive field. Tesla, Google, and Apple are large players in this market, to name a few. So we choose to work on the next step because the future is soft. When those self-driving cars are developed, the next question will be how to deploy them fast. And that is where we want to be the first in the world. All the large companies who work in that field have in their minds an ancient approach for these cars. Just sell it. This is a 100-year-old business model. But for self-driving cars, everything will change. You don't need to own a car that will drive you 5% of your time. Instead, you can split the expenses. That is why we are building a sharing model to deploy those cars fast and make them cheap. We keep building on our vision every single day."4 August 2021
When asked why he started HereYouGo now instead of ten years from now, Maslennikov explained that "first, it's exciting. Second, it's a big push in technology that I want to be a part of my life and make it become a reality for myself. I want to have autonomous cars around me because I think I will trust them more than human drivers."4 August 2021
Maslennikov said that they "got the idea of HereYouGo while studying at Draper University, founded by Tim Draper. Draper is a billionaire investor of the most successful startups in the self-driving space, such as Zoox (acquired by Amazon for $1.3 Billion), Cruise (acquired by General Motors for $1 Billion), and Tesla. We got our first investment from Draper University Ventures."4 August 2021
