Company Summary

Carvoyant is a connected car development platform. The connected car is analogous to the smart phone. As the cell phone become a smart phone by having multiple applications built connecting it to previously undreamed aspects of our lives; we believe the car is next to get as connected. However, there is no singular tool helping developers create these applications until Carvoyant.

Carvoyant generates revenue by selling API access.
