About Agora

For decades, our senior leadership team operated in the retail auto and auto finance space. While we enjoyed the flexibility and entrepreneurial nature of working in that environment, we experienced first-hand the challenges of not having access to the substantial resources such as sophisticated modeling, technology, liquidity and access to capital that the larger institutionalized companies enjoyed. Conversely, several of our senior leaders have served on the institutional side of the business in banking and capital markets and enjoyed the benefits of such resources yet suffered from operating in an inflexible and often bureaucratic environment.

Agora was created as the bridge that gives dealers and finance companies the best of both worlds. We achieved this goal by assembling a team of auto retail and finance industry experts and top data scientists, specializing in artificial intelligence to create Agora, the game-changing platform for the BHPH dealer and auto finance participants.

Our Mission

In 2017, we embarked on a mission to develop a software platform with a single goal in mind. Our mission is to empower independent and BHPH auto dealers and auto finance companies to continue in that innovative spirit, but now with the same access to liquidity, capital, and sophisticated tools used by the larger dealer groups and institutions.

Why Agora?

Why did we name our company Agora? In ancient Greece, the “agora” was a central gathering place in the city where citizens would assemble to learn, interact, and do business. Now, with Agora Data, the dealer and finance community have one central gathering place.
