Accomable

https://www.accomable.com

Accomable is a pioneering global platform for finding adapted hotels and vacation rentals for disabled and elderly people. The company, based in London, UK, was founded by disabled entrepreneurs Srin Madipalli and Martyn Sibley. Friends since childhood and regular travellers, Madipalli (who now serves as the company’s CEO) and Sibley are both wheelchair users due to a disability called SMA (Spinal Muscular Atrophy). Frustrated at the lack of travel information available for disabled people, they launched Accomable in the summer of 2015.

FlightCar

http://www.flightcar.com

FlightCar is the first peer to peer car sharing company to operate by airports. We allow vehicle owners to park with FlightCar for free while they are away, traveling. During that time, we rent out the owners' cars by matching people interested in renting a car to particular vehicles. People renting get a much better deal than with a conventional rental agency, while car owners get free parking for their entire trip, can make money based on the type of car they have, and also get a free carwash and cleaning. FlightCar also fully insures each rental up to $1 million to protect both owners and renters. We currently have locations in San Francisco and Boston, and will be opening our next location, Los Angeles, in early September.
