About EV Life: Founded in 2019, EV Life’s mission is to connect people with opportunities to build a safer, more sustainable world. The company’s first product is a web platform that makes it easier to find and finance an electric car. EV Life does this through a user-friendly interface that brings together car shopping tools, charging and range calculators, and an EV Climate Loan that saves drivers up to $200 per month on financing.
About EyeRate: EyeRate began in 2019 in co-founders Michael and Mitchell Arredondo's garage with assistance from Mike Pieri and Raymond Weisberg. All 4 worked low wage jobs from restaurants to car washes. Today, EyeRate is creating a new category of business that helps employees earn more for high performance.
