Silvercar Tops Austin's A-List 2015

We’re doing things right. Giving customers what they want—when, where, and how they want it. The rest of the industry is having trouble keeping up. This is truly shaping up to be a break-out year for us.

Silvercar has been named to the 2015 Austin A-List by the Austin Chamber of Commerce through its Innovate Austin initiative and South by Southwest Interactive.

Selected by a panel of independent judges from more than 275 nominations, Silvercar was officially revealed and named to the annual Austin A-List of Hottest Startups in ceremonies held at ACL Live at the Moody Theater.

Silvercar’s Austin A-List win in May comes as the company builds on its tremendous momentum. In March, Silvercar bested Ritz-Carlton to win Eye For Travel’s “Best Mobile Strategy” award. In April, Silvercar CEO Luke Schneider was named a finalist for 2015 EY Entrepreneur Of The Year, and Silvercar CFO Chris Donus was named a finalist for The Austin Business Journal’s CFO Of The Year.

Silvercar tripled its business last year and doubled it again in the first quarter of 2015. It commenced operations at Fort Lauderdale Int’l Airport on May 15th and is set to welcome the first Silvercar customers to Chicago O’Hare on June 15th. Silvercar has announced plans to expand to at least three additional markets this year and is on pace to grow another 300% in 2015. “We’re doing things right. Giving customers what they want—when, where, and how they want it. The rest of the industry is having trouble keeping up. This is truly shaping up to be a break-out year for us,” explains Silvercar CEO, Luke Schneider. “To be selected as a stand-out company amongst 275 other exciting companies is an incredible achievement. I’m proud of everyone at Silvercar and incredibly thankful for all of their hard work. It’s our amazing team that really enables us to stand out above the pack.”

Recognition as an A-List Company is intended to increase the visibility of Austin's most fundable, scalable and innovative regional startups, and drive increased venture capital funding to Central Texas. Since the inception of the annual A-List awards, there has been a combined $358,670,000 in investment for all A-List honorees.
