Company Summary

Buying used vehicles is frustrating & time consuming. Selling takes an average of 60 days. There is no really good way to do either. We automate this process; acquire consumer users for $5 each (worth $100-$500 each). We've performed primary consumer & business customer research, have developed an excellent BoD & BoA, and the product is being finalized and is protected. We will beta test this year, launch early next, then scale in 9 months.
