German Motor Specialist: Car Sales
Award Winning Company: Winners of Start Up Sussex 2014
While being at the University the company started after Winning first place in a start up business competition. Our founder Shahid Mahmood, then a second-year MEng Electrical & Electronic Engineering student, and Donghao Liao, a third-year Business and Human Resource Management undergraduate, pitched their 'online showroom' idea. Their business, German Motor Specialist, assists international students, particularly Chinese students, to purchase prestige German cars in the UK. The panel was impressed with their knowledge of this very specific gap in the market.
As reported in Sussex Innovation Centre's website News Shahid said: "It was really unexpected and a great feeling to win, but it wasn't just about the prize. Donghao and I both feel that all of the experience we've gained and skills we've learned during the programme have been even more valuable than the money."
