("Scrap App"), has expanded to its second strategic market, Cleveland, Ohio, following its successful beta launch in Hampton Roads, Virginia.

Greenwave believes Scrap App has the potential to scale to more than $100 million in annual revenue, with a competitor reportedly generating $159 million in annual revenue(1). Greenwave believes that efficiencies created by its vertical integration of key stages of the car scrapping process could create significant competitive advantages.

Scrap App has adopted the lean startup methodology – expanding primarily utilizing the cashflows it generates from operating activities – while focusing on developing systems that will enable it to scale in a manner that is capital-efficient. Similar to how Tinder operated as a startup within Match Group, Inc., initially a subsidiary of IAC, Inc., Greenwave intends to utilize its expansive expertise in the $41.4 billion metal scrap industry(2) to develop Scrap App into an industry-leading technology platform. 

Greenwave is developing artificial intelligence to optimize its pricing operation and automate certain systems and processes to create and enhance efficiencies.
