Kayne Grau of DRIVIN on Disrupting the Used Car Market With Data

March 5, 2017

12:45 pm

Kayne Grau is a cofounder and CEO of DRIVIN, a startup changing the way used car dealers source their used-car inventory. Before founding DRIVIN, Kayne was the CTO at Cars.com.

Using proprietary technology and actionable local market data, DRIVIN sells, sources, acquires, and delivers used car inventory for dealer partners across the country. DRIVIN helps dealers understand what’s selling locally and how to price effectively. DRIVIN has raised $17.5 million from investors including Brad Keywell, Eric Lefkofsky, Mitch Golub, and Columbus Nova Technology Partners.

In this episode we talk about the car market, consumer behavior, how they gained traction, raising capital, what it’s like working with Eric Lefkofsky and Brad Keywell (cofounders of Groupon), and why DRIVIN went the B2B vs B2C route.
