Hate Car Buying? Charlotte, NC Tech Startup Launches Simple Solution at One Spark Festival

Roundabout Life is an app that reverses how we buy and sell cars. Instead of spending hours searching, your new car will call you.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. - April 14, 2015 - PRLog -- Jacob Venture is a premier tech and innovative product company based in Charlotte, NC.

With its recently released mobile app Roundabout Life, Jacob Venture looks to revolutionize the car industry. This app reverses the way we buy and sell cars by effectively killing the search. A now hassle free process for the buyer and sellers get qualified leads at their fingertips and a simple and cost effective process that won't kill their bottom line.

The Roundabout Life team returned from Jacksonville, FL Sunday after attending One Spark, the World’s largest crowd funding festival. In the event, "creators" displayed projects in five categories (art, innovation, music, science, social good, and technology), and attendees voted to award $300,000 in crowdfunded prize money. With a record attendance of over 300,000 the team pitched to over 3,000 people personally to great response. While the startup didn’t receive any top category awards, talks with investors and the public prove a bright future for the app. The startup placed 7th in the category of over 150 creators.

“People really seem to love it, what was a simple idea became a tangible product and now we’ve shown thousands. It’s only a matter of time before the car industry catches on!” Jim Jacob, Roundabout Life Creator.

How it works:

Ready to buy a new car? Through "Car Buyer's Broadcast" you can set up unlimited broadcasts to find a range of cars you'd like to have including make, model, price and more. Simply select the function and set your preferences. Instead of searching for hours, your car will call you!

The app offers a streamlined and effective process for private party sellers and dealers too. "Find a Buyer" will allow you to set up a search based on the vehicle you have available. Just enter your preferences and a qualified buyer is ready to hear from you.

“Roundabout will change the game for dealerships. Online lead generation is nothing new, but dealers have never done it like this, and for a fraction of the current customer acquisition cost. We’re really excited to show the industry what we’ve been working on”. Brian Gainey, Director of Brand Experience at Roundabout Life.

The app comes as the industry makes innovative strides to move sales online. At several big name brand dealerships consumers can custom order their new car through a walk up kiosk. While this simplified option is great for some, technology continues to evolve. With that evolution the consumer will be required even less work than ever before.
