Ridecell was chosen from a pool of hundreds and is being honored for their innovative new mobility platform.
Ridecell offers the ability for companies interested in running carsharing, ridesharing, and shuttle services to brand and launch a new mobility service using the Ridecell new mobility platform.

It also equips service providers with a tool to address the rapidly evolving requirements of today’s consumers.
Recently, Ridecell acquired Auro, a California-based developer of autonomous vehicle technology, and announced the availability its autonomous operations platform. With these two initiatives, Ridecell now offers the industry’s first complete autonomous new mobility solution that enables on-demand autonomous shuttle mobility service in low-speed, private-road settings.
Each year, Best in Biz Awards’ entrants span the spectrum, from some of the most innovative local startups to the most recognizable global brands. The seventh annual program was particularly hotly contested, with more than 650 entries from an impressive array of public and private companies of all sizes and from a variety of industries and geographic regions in the U.S. and Canada. Best in Biz Awards 2017 honors were presented in 65 categories, including Company of the Year, Fastest-Growing Company, Most Innovative Company, Best Place to Work, Support Department, Executive of the Year, Most Innovative Product, Best New Product, App, Event and Website of the Year.
“It’s not a matter of ‘if’ transportation as we know it will change drastically, but ‘when,’” said Aarjav Trivedi, CEO of Ridecell. “For that reason, we are doubling down on our efforts to help companies usher in a new era of mobility. It is a tremendous honor to have those efforts recognized by such a notable organization.”
Since 2011, winners of Best in Biz Awards have been determined based on scoring from independent judging panels composed of prominent editors and reporters from some of the most respected newspapers, TV outlets, and business, consumer, technology and trade publications in North America. Best in Biz Awards’ uniqueness stems, in part, from this distinct composition of its judging panel, allowing it to best leverage the judges’ unparalleled expertise, experience and objectivity to determine award winners. The 2017 judging panel included: Accounting Today, AdWeek, Associated Press, Atlanta Tribune, Business News Daily, Consumer Affairs, Entrepreneur, eWeek, Forbes, Harvard Business Review, Healthcare Innovation News, Inc., Investment Advisor Magazine, Laptop, MediaPost, Pittsburgh Business Times, Security Products Magazine, Wired, WLRN and Yahoo Tech.
“Reviewing this year’s entries in Best in Biz Awards was like going to an NBA All-Star game – you end up shaking your head in admiration, smiling and saying, ‘Oh man, that’s gooood,’” said Dale Dauten, King Features Syndicate, returning to judge the awards for the sixth year. “And then the next one is even better. It’s a top that competition.”
