Siddharth Ladsariya, the founder and CEO of Everest Fleet, emphasized the transformative potential of shared mobility in India, envisioning a future where fleet management providers collaborate extensively with ride-hailing platforms to enhance commuting options for urban residents. The company currently manages a fleet of over 13,000 cars.

According to Tracxn data, Everest Fleet has raised a total of $28.3 million from investors, including Artha Venture Fund and Rockstud Capital.

Sumeet Nindrajog, Co-founder and Senior Partner at Paragon Partners expressed confidence in Everest Fleet’s ability to tap into the growing demand for dependable shared mobility solutions in India, citing their well-positioned stance to capitalize on this trend.
