The team first got introduced to the founders of Pitstop through a startup pitch event called Fundica Roadshow. We were very impressed with the Founder and CEO, Shiva Bhardwaj. He had a great understanding of the automotive and aftermarket service industry and a solid technology background from working at NVIDIA and Blackberry as a systems engineer.
What really excited us about Shiva was his ability to attract seasoned executives to join his team at such an early-stage while working with some of the largest Auto OEMs. Another reason why we loved Pitstop was that we appreciated the decisions that Pitstop has made over the past year to shift to an enterprise-first model as this is where we saw a huge opportunity to be the largest supplier of AI and advanced analytics to transform the mobility industry.
