Tip Whip

Tip Whip is a free ride sharing service for college students. We pair approved and responsible drivers with students who need rides. Tip Whippin is based on gratitude rather than price. Technically free, drivers make money through gas donations by pleased riders.

Spencer Wood, CEO

SpencerI'm a twenty-four year-old graduate student in the final semester of my Master's Program in Human Development at the University of Maine.  I am currently a tenant of the University's Innovation Center, a Black Bear Mentor for a twelve year old boy, coordinator of the peer education group entitled Male Athletes Against Violence, a teaching assistant for Dr. Sandy Caron, and the Outreach and Professional Development officer for the graduate student government.  In 2009, I was recruited by the University of Maine's NCAA football team as a preferred walk on, without an athletic scholarship.  As a true freshman, I achieved my goal of earning an athletic scholarship through extreme discipline, determination, and devotion to my team and course work. In 2013, I graduated with a major in Communications and another in Family Relations with a minor in Peace and Reconciliation Studies.
