The Company

GoKid provides schools, teams and active families with a powerful tool to manage day-to-day schedules. Today there is no easy way to organize kids’ carpools. Our mobile app integrates key technologies that easily facilitate carpool management.

The app includes GPS-based tracking of cars, live mapping functionality, in-app texting, and automatic alerts. This app addresses the parents and caregivers of the 50 million school children in the United States. It is a tool that will not only benefit the families who use it, but also their communities.

GoKid was founded Stefanie Lemcke who wished to solve her own driving fatigue after moving from New York City to Connecticut and finding herself trapped in traffic jams with her neighbors as they all drove to the same place at the same time to drop off and pick up their kids.

Stefanie is a serial entrepreneur and an experienced digital manager who has worked in innovation and technology for the past 15 years. With a background in the children's market, media, and entertainment, she ran the online video department at Sky Germany, headed the legal department at the Disney channel in Germany, and worked at Sony Music. In 2012 she co-founded New York International, a website and technology for international entrepreneurs launching businesses in the US. Stefanie holds a PhD in law from the University of Munich and an M.B.A.
