About us

We are reshaping the € 70bn European car leasing business, one of the largest yet-to-be disrupted markets! The traditional car leasing industry is slow, complicated and expensive. As a result, most SMEs and independents cannot afford to lease cars for their employees.


We put all our efforts to ensure that ordering a car through LIZY is as easy as ordering a toaster on Amazon. Since 2019, our business has been growing rapidly as we’re incredibly ambitious. Our goal is to become the European leader in digital car leasing.


LIZY is a well funded startup with off-the-charts revenue growth and an amazing team of A-players. We’re backed by Lab-Box, the investment fund of D’Ieteren that aims to improve the mobility of people and goods in a scalable & sizable way.


Lizy values

Fun (Have it): Enjoy the ride – life is short.

Feedback (Give it): Feedback is the breakfast of champions. Always assume positive intent.

Personal Growth (Master it): Never stop learning and improving.

Wow (Deliver it): Actually make our customers say “WOW”.

️‍♂️ Drive (Show it): Show commitment and bring everything you have. Do what you say and say what you do.
