Silvercar, the app-based car rental operation, has received another $14 million in venture capital, according to a report by The Wall Street Journal.
This financial support will help Silvercar expand its Audi A4 rental service to other airport locations — financing vehicles as well as helping to pay airport concession fees, CEO Luke Schneider told The Wall Street Journal.
Investors include Eduardo Saverin, co-founder of Facebook, Velos Partners, Austin Ventures and CrunchFund, according to the report. Saverin recently supported FlightCar, a peer-to-peer car-sharing company that slows travelers to rent out their vehicles.
Currently, Silvercar has eight airport locations including Austin, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Dallas, Denver, Miami and Phoenix.
