Martin Villig

Co-founder of Bolt
I am grateful for the invite to join Founders Pledge. I have always tried to help other people by doing good – either personally or via increasing our impact via Bolt. Founders Pledge helps me to learn about impact of effective giving and take my philanthropic activities to the next level. If more people would donate 10% of their income in effective way, we could solve many global challenges faster. So I try to learn, donate smartly and share my learnings with other people.

Martin is the co-founder of Bolt (formerly Taxify), the leading on-demand transportation platform in Europe and Africa, more than 30 million passengers in 35 countries.
