Tomer is the Co-founder of CampusCruizer, a ride sharing service for students, by students. CampusCruizer provides a marketplace where students can give and get safe, cheap and friendly rides. They aim to make drunk driving a thing of the past by eliminating any excuses students may have for driving under the influence.
Tomer and his partner, Arjun Aravindan, has been running their company on NC State’s campus for six months. In the past six months, CampusCruizer has expanded to have two iterations of their service, received attention from several local media stations, gained hundreds of users and begun making a profit.
When asked how the Entrepreneurship Initiative has helped CampusCruizer, Tomer said, “The EI has been great with the resources they provided us. The Garage has been fantastic. The EI has also provided us with opportunities such as the showcase at the Grand Opening of Innovation Hall, the Raleigh Startup Crawl, and more. Through each of these events, we were able to make new connections and further our networking.”
