About the Company:
Curbside SOS, based in Detroit, Michigan is a start-up technology company that provides real time access to towing services and streamlines the dispatch process between law enforcement, towing companies and motorists.
When a tow is needed, time is of the essence. The longer a disabled vehicle sits on the side of the road, the greater the threat to everyone's safety. We use data to confirm real-time ETAs to ensure the quickest available tow can be dispatched to clear roads faster.
In 2020 Curbside SOS launched real products to real users and raised significant capital to accelerate growth throughout the US. This year they will introduce new products and features to provide enhanced value to all stakeholders. The Company is founded and operated by experienced technology entrepreneurs that have proven their ability to deliver wildly successful consumer and commercial technology solutions.
