George McEncroe

Founder of @Shebah

George, while trying to safely get her four kids where they needed to go and support her family as a single mum, came up with an idea for a business: ridesharing that allowed an all-women fleet of drivers to earn income whenever suited them, and that provided worry-free transport for women and children. Now that she’s turned her idea into a reality, she’s added CEO to the impressive list of roles on her resumé, which includes stand-up comedian, breakfast radio host, ABC producer and more.

With an all-women fleet of drivers, Shebah is a mobile-first Australian business providing safe and secure transport for women and children. Now officially national, Shebah is much more than a rideshare service, helping women flourish in both their personal and professional lives. Whether for safety, flexibility or support, every demographic of women has a reason to drive and ride with Shebah.
