Meanizou co-founders / Ian Faria and André Simões 

Mecanizou, a São Paulo-based startup is infusing data intelligence into the auto parts market to create a database connecting mechanic shops and resellers to automotive parts suppliers. Using its proprietary parts identification technology, shops can find the correct items for their clients, thereby reducing costs and waste from using incorrect parts.

On the platform, mechanics type in the vehicle identification number, the plate of the car and name of the parts, and Mecanizou answers with the parts, code and the price. Mechanics can make a purchase with one click and receive the parts in one hour.

The startup founded by Ian Faria and André Simões recently raised a USD $14.5M Series A round led by Monashees, and included the participation of FJ Labs, Alexia Ventures, and Dalus Capital.
