Based in Santa Monica, Calif., ParkMe is the leading provider of parking information to navigation companies and smartphones. Founded by Sam Friedman and Alex Israel, ParkMe's mission is to make parking easier. ParkMe has built the world's most comprehensive parking database, including more than 28,000 worldwide locations, 1,800 cities, 32 countries and seven continents.
ParkMe's free app, ParkMe, helps drivers find real-time parking availability in the form of "heat maps," letting users see the most likely availability for parking on a block-by-block basis. Additional features on the app include a rate calculator, "in-app" route guidance and a timer. ParkMe also offers a widget for businesses to add to their website. The widget allows a business to show consumers real-time parking availability information near its location.
ParkMe is backed by a highly respected group of investors, including Fontinalis Partners and IDG Ventures. Fontinalis Partners is a leading transportation technology strategic investment firm founded by Bill Ford, Ralph Booth, Mark Schulz, Chris Cheever and Chris Thomas.
