Carnovo

Overview

Antai Venture Builder is an investment group of companies such as Wallapop, CornerJob, Glovo, Deliberry, which has launched Carnovo. Antai defines Carnovo as the first online comparator of offers on new cars from official dealers in Spain. It is a Barcelona based start-up that is transforming the automotive purchase process by making it fast, transparent and convenient for both, car dealers and buyers. Their mission is simple, to change the car buying process by placing customers in the center making them save time and money while offering them the best buying experience.

After doing a marketing research, which was done by Antai, they saw a gap in the market; there is a place and demand for an app which would simplify the purchase process of a new car. However, Antai saw that new players started to penetrate the market in Europe and in the US, therefore they needed to launch a web platform in a short period of time, to be precise in 3 months. And Antai needed the product to be robust & ready for scaling. In order to build that type of platform, different profiles were required: going from software architect, DevOps to Frontend & backend experts.

Goals

Their main goals were to build a super easy to use platform, where you could rapidly configure your car and start receiving proposals within the next 48 hours. We also needed to create a reliable back office for dealers in order to manage all the ongoing incoming users’ requests. The application was supposed to grow very fast, so all the automation processes should have been done to support this fast growth.

technologies used

Symfony  PHP, React JS & Docker.

Results

We made it! We delivered the MVP before the high season so all the marketing campaigns could start on time. The product raised 2 million euros in less than 6 months and now it is one of the most promising startups in Spain.
