FAST COMPANY STAFF
John Zimmer, the 27-year old co-founder of Zimride, moved from New York City to San Francisco in the summer of 2008 by ridesharing across the country. At the time, John was (luckily) leaving Lehman Brothers, where he spent two years after graduating first in his class from Cornell University’s Hotel School.
John and Zimride have been featured in the Wall Street Journal, New York Times and on ABC World News. He was recognized by BusinessWeek in 2009 as one of "America’s Best Young Entrepreneur’s 25 and under." He has been a featured speaker at SXSW, The Association for Commuter Transportation (ACT) International Conference and Stanford Business School.
Over the last four years, John has lead Zimride’s business development efforts forging over 120 university and corporate clients, as well as exclusive partnerships with Zipcar, Facebook and Live Nation. His favorite Zimride is San Francisco to Los Angeles.
