RSG200: 100,000 drivers use this app

Listen to this episode on your phone here.

What if I told you there was an app out there with 100,000 users? This app alerts you where your friends are, operates a Clubhouse-style chat, and can even turn your phone into a dash cam. In this episode, I’m chatting with Luiz Neves, co-founder of StopClub, all about what this app offers drivers – and when it’s coming to the US!

Intro to Luiz Neves

  • Co-Founder of StopClub
  • Vertical social network designed for gig workers
  • Designed to help the gig community work safer and better together
  • Started in Brazil

Early Challenges

  • Gig workers are very different from cab drivers
  • Connecting people and creating community
  • Driving for Uber in Brazil is similar to driving for Uber in the US
  • Slightly higher percentage of Brazilians work in the gig economy than the US

Differences: Driving in Brazil vs US

  • Many drivers in Brazil rent their vehicles, not own
  • Variety of vehicles too – natural gas vs. gasoline
  • Brazilian drivers feel less safe than drivers in the US – robberies happen a lot in Brazil

How Does StopClub Work?

  • Helps drivers record video and audio in their cars
  • Social network is another popular feature – connect to friends
  • Can also see where your friends are on the map
  • Working well in Brazil

Expansion into the US Market

  • Growth challenges – how will you tell drivers something like this exists?
  • Driver churn
  • Getting testers for the US market
  • Working on a ‘Live’ feature


  • Big thanks to Luiz for coming on the podcast and chatting with us!
