GoCatch was founded in 2011 in Sydney Australia by a pair of young entrepreneurs. They recognised how frustrated Australians were with the service and reliability of the taxi industry. The tech-savvy pair knew there must be a better way of catching taxis, and set out to find a innovative solution to transform this out-dated system.
Since the idea for GoCatch was hatched in 2010, it has been the recipient of several awards and recognitions, such as a New South Wales Department of Trade and Investment grant and a $50,000 prize at Tech 23, Australia’s leading technology showcase event.

In March 2018, GoCatch announced plans for an Initial Public Offering to launch in June, and appointed John Bartolotta – Managing Director of Royale Limousines, Australia’s leading ground transport provider as a non-executive board member. In joining the GoCatch Board, Mr Bartolotta will provide experienced guidance over GoCatch’s execution platform to service wholesale contracts.
