I’m very proud to be have served as CEO of JustPark. We’re the world’s largest peer-to-peer parking company with over a million customers in the UK alone. Since being founded by Anthony Eskinazi, we’ve grown to be one of the leading lights of collaborative consumption and the ‘Sharing Economy’.
JustPark makes property owners £millions a year from renting out their parking spaces when they’re empty and saves our drivers even more. As you can see, it’s a service that is much loved by its users. We’re also delighted to be backed by Index Ventures and BMW i Ventures, the venture capital arm of BMW.
I remain on the board of JustPark and am also on the board of Spacehive – a venture capital-backed civic crowdfunding platform where I’m working with its talented CEO and founder, Chris Gourlay. Spacehive is working to bring new life to towns and cities and by empowering ordinary people to raise money for projects that are close to their hearts.
At Spacehive, we work with over 30 UK councils helping them make ensure they fund projects that are validated by local people and giving them extra leverage on their funds from the crowd. We also partner with responsible corporates looking to improve the communities they touch. Today, we’ve funded £5 million of projects and growing fast.
