"In the long run I believe that I will help this country if I build something new... This is my goal, my ambition, to build something 10-20 times bigger than what I achieved with BEAT.”

The self-taught programmer and founder of Taxibeat, Nikos Drandakis, radically changed the traditional model of the taxi market in our country – and the obstacles were quite a few. In spite of all, Nikos conquered the markets of South America and Greece, and in 2017 he sold the company to Daimler, a German group, for 42 million euros. In 2020 he left the company. In the present episode, he narrates his entire career: from the family business to the 80’s, BEAT and his future plans.
