Cary unveils ‘Series A Funding' at ArabNet Digital Summit 2014

Dubai conference sees Cary announcing latest plans including version 2.0

Dubai – 4 June 2014: Cary, the world’s first social mobile app for buying and selling cars, was a recent prominent participant in the ArabNet Digital Summit 2014. This important international conference is taking place from June 3-5 at the Atlantis, The Palm, in Dubai.

The new version will include a plethora of original features and functionality. Among these is a brand new exploration section, which enables users to browse through selections of their favourite cars. The social aspect of Cary has also been updated; Cary users can now join and follow groups which are continually updated to enable users to keep updated with the latest news.

Cary is also the only car-based mobile app in the world which features in-app messaging. This enables users and dealers to exchange both messages and photographs privately, enhancing the buying and selling process. 

In addition to the completely new version, Cary unveiled its intention to seek a ‘Series A Funding Round’ for its app in order to take the already esteemed application to the next level and provide an opportunity for investors to invest in this unique project.

This will be particularly focused on launching Cary in new markets, and extending its current geographical focus,” added Johmani. 

In addition, Cary also announced that the Arabic version of the app will launch in September, 2014. This will obviously be a particular boon to the Middle Eastern region; Cary’s domestic marketplace being particularly important to the company. 

Cary co-founder and business development driver, Rana Tarakji stated: “Seeking this further funding will give Cary the opportunity to greatly expand our already significant operations, and bring on board some top notch technical talent to help improve Cary still further. We are extremely excited about this, and also the imminent launch of the Arabic version of Cary, which is sure to expand our already sizeable user base in the Middle East”.
