Founded by Conor O'Boyle and Shane Ennis in 2019, Drive Inc is the parent company of second-hand car sales app Sweep, which allows consumers to search more than 30,000 vehicles from more than 400 trusted dealerships. It is also behind TradeBid, a recently launched digital trade marketplace for dealers.

The company, which intends to use the new financing in part to increase employee numbers from 20 to up to 35, is also in the process of rolling out Nevo, an electric vehicle-focused online solution that includes a route planner highlighting charging stations and providing precise range estimates.

“With Sweep, we essentially came up with a Tinder-style solution that has proven incredibly popular with over 20 million swipes from users to date. With TradeBid, we’ve widened out our focus with another hit solution and we are extremely optimistic on how we can help drivers make the switch to electric vehicles through the rollout of Nevo,” said Conor.
