Our mission is to help drivers
Bluebox started when Minsoo thought about the disparity between dashcam adoption in the US vs Korea and started thinking about the missing software applications.
Many of us have worked as working drivers and are fully aware of the various daily struggles that come with the job. Our goal is to add a Co-pilot for all drivers that will assist you throughout your drives.
We have an extensive and diverse set of technical skills that allowed us to build the Co-pilot from the ground up. Most importantly though, we have the real-world experience that was necessary to build the right applications.
