The Motor Enthusiast Market is Huge
But there is no one place for them to get everything they need.
There are tens of thousands of websites out in this web jungle, and the vast majority focuses on only one very specific interest group. In fact, sometimes there's 100 separate sites for one model (i.e. there are 110 different Mustang Forums...). This means motor enthusiasts have to spend hours and hours searching for content, products and services scattered across the web.

The Solution: One Website for Planning & Sharing Custom Builds
It's marketplace meet forum. Discover, buy, sell, share your custom ride in one place.
At Motoroso, we're crazy about everything motor-driven, and we got tired of the "internet time warp" of options today. So, we're creating what everyone has been waiting for: A website to help with all aspects of your enthusiast lifestyle. Find ideas, get inspired, read articles on new releases, buy parts, hire shops, and show off your stuff all in a single easy-to-use modern website custom built from the ground up for our fellow gearheads.
How Motoroso Works
The human brain processes images 60,000X faster than text, so users search for builds through a visual feed, like on Houzz or Pinterest.
Engage & Share
Users can explore unique interactive markers to find products, videos, how-tos, and articles. Then they can show off their own projects and add tags.
Buy & Hire
Soon, users will be able to compare, purchase, and review products. Plus, find and hire the best service providers for any job.
We're Young & Growing Fast
With plenty of elbow grease and determination, Motoroso has been growing consistently and attracting big brand profiles.
Motoroso launched in February of 2015. Since then, we've been making a name for ourselves, and partnering with huge brands like Ford at the aftermarket industry tradeshow SEMA, which draws in nearly 200,000 attendees (it's the 5th largest tradeshow in the world!)

Join Us for the Ride!
Since my earliest days building things in the garage with my dad, I’ve been obsessed with cars, motorcycles, boats and airplanes. If it’s got a motor in it, I probably want to tinker with it. Whether or not you can you relate to that, I’m sure you know someone who has a borderline unhealthy relationship with automotive or powersports. There’s 40 Million of us.
My other obsession is startups, because I love building things. I’ve been working in silicon valley tech startups for nearly 10 years. And now I have my dream job, because I’m combining my passion for cars with building a company that serves the industry I love. Startups are really hard work. Pulling long hours and overcoming endless obstacles is not easy, but when it’s a "labor of love”, it suddenly doesn’t feel like work.
I’m inviting you to invest in Motoroso. Here’s why.
Access to invest early in a company with this potential has previously only been available to accredited investors, but now it’s possible to own a piece of Motoroso, no matter how large or small.
Motoroso needs to exist. It’s ridiculous that it doesn’t already, given how much money this market spends. We need to bring enthusiasts together and make it easier for people to find ideas, products, service providers, and share their builds back to the world. It’s crazy that an industry as large as this still struggles with outdated websites and communities.
You’ll be backing an entrepreneur who’s passionate about his mission, bringing his dream to life through unshakable commitment, and you’ll potentially reap the rewards if it works out. I can’t think of anything better than working hard to make money for my friends, family, and fellow gearheads… it's the only thing that could motivate me more than I am already.
