SYRACUSE (WSYR-TV) - A Syracuse man won $15,000 from the ABC show "Funderdome" Sunday evening.
Carlos Suarez developed his "Truxx" app several years ago while unsuccessfully trying to fit a large flatscreen television into the back of his car.
"Truxx" works like Uber, but instead helps people move large objects for a fee.
Suarez came short of the $50,000 grand prize on the program, instead opting to cash-out for a smaller amount.
"My goal is to always to develop products that people find useful," Suarez said. "[I] see a need [and] fill a need. So that's what I thought I would do."
Prior to appearing on "Funderdome", Truxx already had 2,500 registered drivers and more than 5,000 users.
