Seed funding for Parkdepot
The start-up wants to enable companies - especially from the retail sector - to continue renting out their parking spaces outside of opening hours. The Munich-based company has now successfully completed its seed round.
The Amsterdam VC fund henQ has invested 4.2 million euros in the Munich-based start-up Parkdepot. The company enables businesses to rent out free parking spaces. The offer is aimed at supermarkets, among others, which can thus still use their customer parking spaces outside opening hours. In addition, Parkdepot offers fully automatic license plate recognition, which enables parking lot operators to monitor who is using their service and whether anyone is parking their vehicle without authorization.
Last but not least, Parkdepot says it offers data analytics, for example to better track occupancy and usage of parking spaces. According to the company, all systems have been tested by DEKRA for their data protection conformity.
Parkdepot already counts Edeka, Rewe and McDonald's among its customers. With the money from henQ, the company now wants to refine its product and expand across Europe. "Despite a challenging environment since we entered the market, we have been able to position Parkdepot as a strong and reliable partner in the German retail sector," explained co-founder Jakob Bodenmüller. "Last year we grew from 7 to 53 employees - we brought the right people on board, I'm super proud of the whole team and my co-founders!"
