Open Road Season 2: Champions

Supercharge Hivemapper’s Growth with Open Road Season 2: Champions

After an amazing year, this new community-led initiative aims to spark the network’s next major phase of expansion and impact.

Remember when we set out together to build the world’s freshest map? Remember the thrill you felt when you started contributing to the growth of a mapping network with immense potential?

Well, we’ve done it! With Open Road Season 1: Trailblazer, this incredible community ambitiously targeted 6 million unique road kilometers, covering 10% of global roads. We’ve reached that milestone while collectively mapping a staggering 90 million total road kilometers in more than 90 countries — delivering the freshest data to a growing list of map customers.

We accomplished this in just the past year, effectively bootstrapping a high-value mapping network and a thriving community of drivers and Map AI Trainers from scratch. Your enthusiasm and dedication have propelled us forward at an unprecedented pace. We couldn’t be more grateful for your contributions, because we couldn’t have come this far so quickly without you.

We all know that this is a pivotal moment. Now is the time for us to focus our combined energy on championing the next major leap for Hivemapper.

Open Road Season 2: Champions is a new community-led initiative to catapult our operations into supercharged growth. As a Hivemapper champion, your efforts will help accelerate the dashcam network and create a buzz that attracts map customers to our data like bees to nectar.

The beauty of this community is that while we benefit from strength in numbers, each of you has immense influence to help shape what comes next. By tapping into your personal networks, you hold the key for us to rapidly scale our platform at this vital phase. Your participation matters. Your connections matter. Your impact matters.
