Nicholas started his first company in 2013, went through YCombinator and raised $10M by 2015. In 2017, Nicholas sold his company to Carvana, stayed there until 2020 and recently left to build a FinTech business. is a digital platform to refinance auto loans in the U.S. If you want to lower your payments and save thousands of dollars, check out their refinance calculator now.
