Our Story

The CarParagon story began with a class project at Stanford business school in Silicon Valley, California where the two company founders, Varot Kamolchotiros from Thailand and Kung Min Bang from Korea, first met as classmates.

While living in the United States, Varot noticed how much easier the process of buying a new car was over there, thanks to the online resources available to American consumers. He set about creating a new car online platform for South East Asian car buyers, drawing on his previous career experience in the Thai automotive industry. Classmate Min, a serial entrepreneur and (info from bio) provided the technical expertise.

The CarParagon idea caught the eye of a leading Stanford professor, who mentored Varot through the development of the initial business plan. After almost three years of planning, preparation and programming, their initial idea is now a reality.

Our Vision

At CarParagon, we understand that a new car is one of the most significant purchases in life. We appreciate how important it is to shop around to find the most attractive car deal and we know how time-consuming it can be to drive to, and negotiate with, multiple car dealerships.

We are working towards a world in which South East Asian new car buyers can:

  • Search for a new car any time, anywhere via the Internet
  • Enjoy transparent, upfront pricing and access to a range of promotional offers
  • Quickly and easily contact car dealers with just a few clicks
