It was the beginning of the lockdown in April 2020 when Utkarsh P. (BSc ‘21) and Abhinav S. (MBA’ 20) sat across a dinner table lamenting about their mechanics and car repair experience. After discovering this to be a widespread problem, they decided to solve it and DrCar was born.
DrCar (vist at drcar.ca) is an online marketplace of local Car Auto Shops. To be released for closed BETA launch at the end of this month, DrCar helps you find and book a mechanic at a local Auto Shop for the unique car problem you are facing. Once the repair is done, the platform keeps a track of your repairs and predicts your future car repairs using AI technology. The team recently won the most impactful tech award at the Schulich Startup Night’s 14 Edition.
A one in all solution for car repair, DrCar is rewriting the future of how we take care of cars. Utkarsh and Abhinav first met at the Dream Team, an event jointly run by Lassonde School of Engineering and Schulich School of Business. DrCar is being supported and mentored by the BEST Lab’s Prof. Andrew Maxwell and Schulich’s Entrepreneur in Residence Mr. Chris Carder.
