SPOT is the airbnb of parking. Their mobile app (currently iPhone only) has created a mobile marketplace connecting those lucky enough to have a private, off-street parking space, and those on the hunt for one. Have a SPOT? List it for rent whenever your not using it. It could be 24 hours a day, during the mornings while you’re at work, or that hour every Tuesday that you’re at spin class. Need a SPOT? Simply open the app, select a SPOT that works for you and confirm your reservation. With over a million dollars in funding, expansion into a new market underway and an ever-improving app, SPOT is truly living up to it’s tagline and making it possible to “park easier”.
Mitch Gaynor, Director of Marketing for SPOT. - SPOT aims to solve the parking crisis in the city of Boston (and beyond) by providing a marketplace for owners of privately owned SPOTs to rent out that space to commuters who are in need of parking, at lower rates than many of the overpriced garage spaces. Come learn how to create a mobile app, build a business around one and all the people and things required to take a crazy idea into a million dollar business.
