Founder Of Self-Driving Vehicle Startup Is Working To Make Healthcare Services More Accessible

Frederick Akphoghene is a Nigerian immigrant and founder of JeGO Technologies, Inc., a company that designs and manufactures autonomous vehicles and self-driving pods. Starting his tech career at just 16-years old, he is now partnered with hundreds of companies and is on to his next venture, JeGO.

Now, Akphoghene is moving into the mobile healthcare industry with JeGO, a platform that connects users with on-demand services like COVID and Flu testing, IV therapy and other services. Driverless JeGO pods will deliver necessary healthcare directly to customers.

“JéGO is here to give entrepreneurs the space to compete and to give service providers the mobility to serve without the burden of large fixed costs like rent…This will lead to more money flowing into our communities as opposed to it flowing outwards to large corporations – because we are just as tired of that normalcy as you are,” said Akpoghene. 

According to Blacknews.com, “while Akpoghene is starting his product launch with healthcare providers, the autonomous market is expected to reach $367 billion globally by 2030 and JéGO will eventually be open to all vendors looking to get their products and services directly to users and have already partnered with a local manufacturer to produce the Pods.”
