We are sure that our association with We Founder Circle will not only help us in scaling our operations but also in gaining strategic alliances that are essential for our growth.

Brand infusing funds to digitising the industry to give a seamless experience to customers to get access to options like digital documentation and digital payment.

“The luxury car market is at the right stage to be disrupted.

We back them because of the strong team background and quick execution capabilities”, said Bhawna Bhatnagar, Co-founder, We Founder Circle. 

The luxury pre-owned car industry is growing at a double-digit rate, and this trend is likely to continue for many years as mobility ownership is increasing in the country. However, the market is still very fragmented, and organised companies such as luxury brands’ authorised dealerships have a lot of room to grow.
