Who We Are

The story of Agora Data

Our mission is simple:

We empower Buy Here Pay Here, independent auto dealers, and finance companies with access to liquidity, affordable capital, and sophisticated tools to help grow their businesses and build wealth.

We've been featured on:

We assembled a team of experts from retail auto, auto finance, and top data scientists (specializing in artificial intelligence) to create Agora, the game-changing software platform for independent auto dealers and finance companies.

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 is solving these issues by connecting the Capital Markets to the retail auto and auto finance industry. And we’re only just getting started!
