JIGME THINLEY YOEZER RINZIN
Founder/CEO, DrukRide & MyDrukRide
Jigme Thinley Yoezer Rinzin is the founder and CEO of DrukRide / MyDrukRide and also a founding member of Bhutan Association of Entrepreneurs (BAEyul). DrukRide and MyDrukRide was founded on a simple concept for travellers in Bhutan to book a bus ticket and hail a cab through app/website at any place and at anytime. Anybody with a computer or a smartphone can buy bus tickets or hail a cab in a minute at their convenience. His Company is the first of its kind launched in Bhutan.
DrukRide reimagines the way Bhutanese travel with the smart approach of latest mobile technology to cater the service to its specific customer needs. DrukRide’s founding principles are safety, accessibility, improving lives of drivers, improving public transport and communities. His Company will continue to lead its direction forward.
Currently, his Company has five hundred taxi drivers registered and has partnered with Airport Shuttle bus, bus transport operators and official flight-ticketing partners of Bhutan Airlines. But, Jigme did not start out as a success story. He failed numerous times before starting the “DrukRide”.
His experience prior to DrukRide were in tour company and in online e-commerce to export Bhutanese hand-made products. Jigme holds a Bachelors degree in Commerce.
