Cazoo Press Release

3 July 2019

Cazoo named as one of the UK's top startups for 2019

Cazoo, one of the best funded new tech businesses in the UK seeking to transform the way people buy used cars, has been ranked at #13 on the Startups 100 2019 list, despite not having even launched yet.   

Established in 2008, the prestigious Startups 100 list is the longest running annual index of its kind, ranking the country’s top 100 disruptive, fast-growth, new businesses which demonstrate innovation, solid financials, economic impact and the ability to scale. 

Founded by Alex Chesterman OBE, who previously founded LoveFilm and Zoopla, Cazoo has already secured over £30 million of funding and has been busy assembling a world-class team ahead of its planned launch later this year.

Cazoo aims to make buying a used car no different to buying any other product online today by letting consumers select from thousands of cars online and have it delivered to their door in as little as 72 hours.

Alex Chesterman Founder & CEO of Cazoo said: “We’re delighted to have made this list before we have even launched. The list has previously identified some very successful UK businesses early on and, whilst we are just getting started, we’re pleased our potential has been recognised ahead of our launch later this year.” 

Editor of Startups.co.uk, Bryn Glover: “We had more entries than ever and the standard was especially high, so being included is a fantastic achievement. We have a good track record of identifying potential - Deliveroo, Zoopla, Monzo and HelloFresh and many more - so we can’t wait to watch the businesses progress over the coming years.”

 

The list was judged by a host of high-profile business leaders. The full index can be found here:  https://startups.co.uk/startups-100/2019/
