The TyreConnect Story: Scaling a B2B startup through to successful exit

The TyreConnect Story: Scaling a B2B startup through to successful exit

Ryan Wilson, a former greenskeeper, surfer and son of a tyre retailer had never set foot in a startup forum, but in 2015 created a website for selling tyres that immediately took off.

A year later he met serial tech entrepreneur Stephen Langsford (former CEO and founder of Australia’s streaming pioneer Quickflix). Together, they managed to turn TyreConnect into Australia’s leading B2B platform for the distribution of car tyres from their headquarters in Kewdale.

After dramatically growing annual revenues and establishing TyreConnect as the preferred service for Australia’s largest dealership groups and major passenger vehicle brands in under five years, it was no surprise they attracted the attention of ASX giant Carsales, who recently acquired the company.

Come and hear valuable lessons from Ryan and Stephen on how they blitz-scaled their business, outstripped the competition, got on the radar of major international companies and managed their way through to a successful exit.

About Ryan:
Ryan Wilson is the founder and GM of TyreConnect.

About Stephen:
Stephen Langsford recently stepped down as Executive Chairman of TyreConnect to pursue his next venture and assist growth companies in scaling. He has grown and successfully exited several ventures to ASX-listed companies.
