London, United Kingdom
JustPark is rethinking parking for the 21st century. By unlocking over 200,000 previously underused spaces, we provide cheaper, more convenient parking to over 1 million drivers across the UK.
Our apps and website allow drivers to find, reserve and pay for parking seamlessly - wherever and whenever they need it, either in advance or on-the-go. By pricing our spaces intelligently, we offer motorists a much better deal, being up to 70% cheaper than pay-and-display.
On the flipside, we use technology and data to maximise the value of people’s parking assets - providing over 25,000 homeowners, landowners, businesses, charities and existing car parks with access to a lucrative additional revenue stream at no upfront cost.
We’ve generated over £20m of revenue for property owners by monetising their underutilised space - and we’ve saved drivers over £10m on their parking charges. Now with over a million users, JustPark is leading the disruption of a global market worth over $50bn.
With investment from BMW and Index Ventures (investors in Just Eat, Dropbox and Facebook), JustPark closed a record-breaking £3.5m equity crowdfunding round in 2015 - as well as being named winners of Sir Richard Branson’s VOOM competition and one of WIRED’s hottest European startups.
Why are we exciting?
A lot of tech companies do stuff that is kinda cool but kinda ... well that's about it. We're not one of those companies.
We're solving one of the biggest problems that afflict cities globally. And at the same time, we're putting millions of pounds back in drivers' pockets and making families and small businesses millions too by allowing them to monetize their parking spaces.
It should be said that we're not petrol heads either. 20-30% of all the traffic and car pollution in cities is caused by drivers circling for parking (IBM). Our model of pre-booked parking removes these awful externalities.
Further, JustPark - formerly ParkatmyHouse - is heavily involved with electric vehicles. We have installed hundreds of EV charge points on our property owners' driveways through an innovative Government-funded scheme called ChargeatmyHouse.
We believe in working hard but having stupid amounts of fun. We believe that everyone needs to unleash their entrepreneurial spirit. We offer top of market packages, unlimited holidays and free gourmet chef-cooked lunches. We are backed by BMW and have over half a million customers.
If you want to come on a brilliant adventure and solve a big problem, we're the startup for you.
