Meet the Black Woman Entrepreneur Who Created the First Ever Ride-Sharing App For People With Health Problems and Disabilities

Janese Jean, founder of Safetrip Co App

Ja'Nese Jean, a known international opera singer, is more than just a beautiful, fascinating voice. Jean, also a tech entrepreneur, recently launched the newest ride-sharing app specifically made for people with health problems and disabilities.
Ja'Nese was hailed the "Next Big Opera Star" in Aretha Franklin's singing competition. She was offered a recording contract with Aretha Records and was even compared to the best in the industry. But her career is actually more focused on simplicity and love for people. Her humanitarian efforts already helped thousands of people in need of housing, food, and other necessities -- and it's still counting.

Jean's passion to connect the world positively is very much evident in her philanthropic acts and technology developments. Her tech products include mobile applications, proxy servers, mass email software, and patented heat and motion activated car sensors. The most recent development she and her company launched is the SAFETRIP app.

The two major platforms of the app aim to help both drivers and users. It will give more job opportunities to drivers, especially those certified in defensive driving training, sensitivity training, and CPR. The app is also a breakthrough for millions of people with disabilities and healthcare-related appointments. It tracks patients in real-time allowing them to ride on demand, schedule in advance, in-app calling features, driver/user rating systems and more.

"SAFETRIP is dedicated to moving healthcare transportation forward, faster, and more affordably," says Ja'Nese. The lifesaving app is available for download on and Apple App Store and Google Play Store.
