This startup is “the Uber of roadside assistance” and is disrupting the status quo (One Country = One National Auto Club) by digitalizing the industry and being a single point of contact, resulting in the removal of borders and elimination of intermediaries as well as the simplification and streamlining of the whole process (increased efficiency and customer satisfaction while lowering costs).
They have a constantly expanding supply chain network that is currently present in 11 countries with 1600+ towing trucks and 200+ mechanic workshops. The network will include 3 new countries in the next 6 months.
They currently have over 150k registered users and over 100k subscribers in 5 countries, with sales expanding to 5 new countries that will result in the number of users and subscribers doubling in next 12 months.
This startup is growing at over 2 times per year, with its 2022 Net Revenue set to at €1.3 million vs €0.5 million in 2021 and €0.2 million in 2020. For 2023 and 2024, its Net Revenue is set to reach €3.5 million and €8.4 million respectively.
There is a lot of room to grow, as the European addressable roadside assistance market size is estimated at €10 billion, growing at around 4% per year until 2030.

– Revenues from B2B and B2C annual subscriptions as well as on-demand requests;
