How Sophies Angels was Started


Sophies Angels was founded on 13th of February 2017 by Sophie Denman after identifying a need in the industry for safer passenger service options. Sophie Denman has been working in the passenger service industry for the last 4 years (Originally working for Uber) until the start of last year when she launched her company Sophies Angels. Nearly 2 years later, we have a small support team, a bunch of drivers and are still growing to this day.


Recently we have been implementing the ‘Angel Shot’ system in bars across Wellington to provide a safety net for bar goes to get home and give bar staff more options in helping their customers in a time of need. This has brought a lot of positive attention to the company from government agencies and charities alike.


In 2019 with the launch of our new mobile App, we plan on expanding to the South Island and setting up Sophies Angels in Christchurch and further south to Dunedin.
