Uber Stories - Founder Spotlight on Khurrum Shakir of Carsquare: “The Will To Never Give Up Keeps Me Going”
Nibletz called us the “Kayak for cars”; Carsquare is a car shopping comparison site. Our goal is to save people looking to buy or lease a car a LOT of time and make the experience a lot easier. We’re much different from AutoTrader, eBay, and Cars.com, which claim to be search engines, but they’re not – they’re portals. They only show listings in their own environment. We developed a proprietary web crawler to aggregate and show listings from everyone, letting you compare car pricing and features side-by-side in a visual layout.
We provide a nationwide search – you can find a car anywhere in the US – and we have users coming from around the world searching on our site – from the UK, Canada, Brazil, Egypt, Saudi Arabia. We want to go international, but to get more traction, we will need to raise funding, because for us, traction is all about eyeballs.
