Getting to your destination

With Client Sheprd

While Sheprd focuses on the complexities of family transportation, MBBP helps this unique ride-sharing company navigate the path from start-up to financing, and wherever the road may take them next.

Sheprd is Giving the Whole Family a Lift

Founded to “address everything that is challenging about organizing family logistics”, Sheprd is an industry-disrupting ride-sharing company for K-12 students. The company organizes rides to and from its partner network of schools, camps, clubs, and after-school programs. After growing up commuting between Newton and Foxboro, to and from various sports teams, founder and CEO Nick Jasset was all too familiar with the complexities of family transportation. Thus, Sheprd was born and is now at the forefront of helping alleviate the stress on families of simultaneously managing several schedules.

Morse Barnes-Brown Pendleton’s relationship with Sheprd began at incorporation and continues to be all encompassing as the company has navigated out of inception. Through the leadership of MBBP’s corporate member Michael Jabbawy, the firm helped the founding team navigate on start-up and formation matters, including advising on critical concepts related to entity choice, founder equity issues, tax considerations, and intellectual property matters. As the business continued to grow, MBBP assisted the company through an initial set of critical milestones, helping the company negotiate a secured loan, file for trademark protection, develop a driver manual and a complex privacy policy and terms of service, as well as negotiate and close an initial round of financing led by Land Rover.

As Sheprd’s journey continues, MBBP is excited to be along for the ride.
