Carmony is a new way to find your perfect vehicle. Using big data technology, we have developed a new way for car shoppers to find the perfect vehicle that we call “Lifestyle Search.” By asking shoppers about themselves and what they use their vehicles for, we are capable of matching them directly to vehicles for sale at local dealerships without them ever needing to go do any independent research.

For our technology to improve and to validate our business model, we need Carmony to reach more car shoppers. We have begun to solve this problem by integrating Carmony’s search functionality directly onto dealership websites.

Carmony benefits the average car shopper. Carmony’s Lifestyle Search eliminates hours of wasted time on research and efficiently informs the shopper about multiple vehicle options that all meet their unique needs the best. In addition, when it comes time to buy, we provide the dealerships with detailed information about you and what you are looking for so that you have a shopping experience tailored to you.

What I Will Do With $5,000

Currently we are paying out of pocket to access all of the vehicle data that we need to do what we do. This costs us more than $700 a month. We would use the $5,000 from the event to offset some of these costs.
