The Austin Chapter welcomes Mandeep Patel, UT 2019 Mechanical Engineering, CEO and co-founder of Electrip and Elliot Lee, UT 2020 Mechanical Engineering, COO and co-founder of Electrip.
ElecTrip is solving for the 1000s of labor hours lost by frequent business travelers when traveling between cities located less than four hours apart by car. We offer door to door transportation in a private Tesla with Wi-Fi and laptop charging. Due to the lower operational expense of EVs, we can offer a no-compromise service at a cost-competitive price. Since our launch in March of 2018, we've serviced over 1,000 clients-including Apple, Shell, and Deloitte. ElecTrip recently signed a contract with Shell, offering employees discounted rides in order to offset carbon emissions during city to city commutes, while also providing a safer option than the ones currently on the market.
Mandeep Patel is a UT Austin Mechanical Engineering graduate and is also the founder of ElecTrip. Mandeep Patel is the CEO and focuses mainly on corporate partnerships, investors, and day to day operations. Mandeep has previous experiences interning at United, Lockheed Martin, and BP. In order to run ElecTrip, Mandeep turned down two different full-time offers and is also the recipient of the McCombs Summer Fellowship this past summer.
Eliott Lee is a senior at The University of Texas at Austin studying Mechanical Engineering. He is involved with the Longhorn Entrepreneurship Agency on campus and has experience interning at Shell GameChanger, an early-stage startup fund/program within Shell. Born and raised in Houston, with a passion for energy, tech, and startups. He serves at the COO for ElecTrip and works alongside Mandeep and the rest of the ElecTrip team.
