Kevin Mclaughlin founded AutoShare, Toronto’s first car-sharing company, to reduce the enormous environmental damage caused by vehicle emissions. His company has since saved Torontonians both time and money in vehicle insurance and maintenance, providing well-needed financial relief during the 2008 recession. Now, after successfully overcoming numerous challenges in securing capital and business ownership, AutoShare has achieved over $6 million in annual revenue and a network of over 12 000 auto-sharing members. AutoShare was sold to Entreprise in 2014.

Kevin has integrated the values of environmental-consciousness in both his business and his personal life. He has also founded other companies in the shared-mobility and urban transformation space, including Modo.coop and Evergreen.ca. Currently, Kevin is president at Nesko Technologies, a mobile taxi payment, hailing, and demand prediction platform.
