Czechstartups.org: Czech car sharing start-up AJO has grown from Brno to Prague

Car sharing services are becoming relatively popular around the world. The most visible company is without the doubt an originally French-based start-up BlaBlaCar. It provides its services in many countries, including Czech Republic where it bought the Czech number one company Jízdomat. A competition is on the rise for them and it comes from Brno.

Brno´s start-up AJO was able to raise 5 mil. CZK during its crowdfunding campaign on Fundlift. Moreover, the promising company received 2 mil. CZK investment from the programme JIC Ventures from the South Moravian Innovation Centre (JIC). The success on Fundlift as well as the investment allowed AJO to grow their business from Brno to Prague. AJO will have more than 30 vehicles in service with its Prague and Brno´s fleet.

We buy only new cars for sharing. Thanks to the comfortable pick up system and short term loans, AJO is an attractive alternative of owning the car in all locations, where we provide our services,“ said about AJO its founder Jaromír Klimek.
