GM Maven + Lyft + Uber = ONE Partnership
General Motors debuted its car sharing program, Maven, in January as an alternative to car ownership for its customers. Maven’s various programs include car rentals for city dwellers and peer-to-peer car-sharing. Maven is now available in 10 U.S. cities, and customers have driven more than 23 million miles with those vehicles, according to the company.
General Motors is also a car provider for Lyft’s Express Drive car rental program, along with Hertz. Like the car rental test with Uber, the Express Drive program lets Lyft drivers rent cars.
GM’s ties to Lyft are deep. In January, it invested $500 million in Lyft, and the two companies are working on autonomous driving technology as the auto industry races to put self-driving cars on the road.
GM’s partnership with Uber raises questions about its existing relationship with Lyft. Does it mean that GM is shifting its allegiance? Of course not, it’s expected that vehicle access programs have multiple partners.
One Technologies, Inc. is on the forefront to bridge the gap between consumers ever growing options and on-demand providers. A win for the people and a win for the providers. It's all a race to autonomous vehicles by any means, right :)

Curious how well the companies have done? Or how many raised follow-on financing?
Some fine print: 1) These numbers include startups currently live on Wefunder if they pass their minimum target. 2) Some startups use two different laws at the same time (i.e., Regulation D and Regulation Crowdfunding).
