Egyptian online retailer of quality used cars and vehicle financing, has grabbed pre-seed funding led by Contact Financial Holding along with a scalable inventory financing ability. With this strategic investment, the company is positioned to launch its innovative model for a digital car dealership and offer crucial vehicle financing and insurance options.

Carzami intends to use the funds to transform Egypt’s used car market targeting $30 million in revenue by 2024.

Said Zater, CEO of Contact Financial Holding added, “Our support to Carzami comes as a part of our continuous effort to connect with the startup scene in all aspects we can complement their work with. We believe in the ongoing digitization of services led by exciting startups like Carzami”.
