JustPark is seeking to lead the disruption of the £50 billion global parking market by allowing its customers to book off-street parking spaces online wherever and whenever they need them. Since its debut, the company has over 650,000 registered users and over 150,000 parking spaces. It is backed by BMW (since 2011) and international venture capital firm Index Ventures (since 2014).
JustPark’s listed parking spaces include:
- Over 250 car parks (currently works with NCP, three large parking companies and 5 UK councils)
- Hotels (takes bookings at hotels such as Hilton Hotels, IHG, and Accor)
- Over 23,000 private homes
During its run on Crowdcube, JustPark raised £3.7 million from 2916 investors, who purchased 15.61% equity. Now, c0-founder of JustPark, Anthony Eskinazi is ready to share his thoughts about crowdfunding and how the business was saved thanks to the campaign.
While revealing his reaction to the campaign’s success, Eskinazi stated to The Guardian:
“If I could go back and talk to my 23-year-old self, I would give myself a slap. I burned out a dozen times in the first two years, making myself ill. I was doing it on my own, I had no money.”
