Kar-go was hailed as Europe's first street legal self driving car. Prior to creating amazing self driving cars, Sachiti has ate the head of creating a number of companies that have been acquired by others. He built “MyCityVenue”, an A.I. driven experiences platform serving 1.6 million users which was acquired in 2015 by Secret Escapes.


Sachiti reportedly started out as an entrepreneur at only 19 with his first start-up "123-registration”, a domain registration business which was acquired for an undisclosed amount. Before building “MyCityVenue”, Sachiti was on the BBC Investment program Dragons Den, where he pitched a start-up, “Clever Bins” – a solar powered digital outdoor advertising bins company. The company he pitched traded for three years and subsequently licensed its technology to six countries and local governments before closing in 2013.
