Syracuse entrepreneur competes on Steve Harvey's "Funderdome"

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.
