Dublin-based Parkio seek to raise €2m
Dublin-based start-up Parkio is seeking to raise €2 million, with the Portuguese equivalent of Enterprise Ireland having already agreed to stump up over half of this.
Parkio lets people and companies rent vacant parking spaces. The start-up is the brainchild of Rob Kramer, an Austrian who previously established Parkpnp, a company that offers a similar service to Parkio, with co-founder Garret Flower, before the two parted ways.
It recently opened an office in Lisbon after taking part in an accelerator programme in the city.
“We’re already operating in a few markets and I expect us to be in Spain and Brazil,” Mr Kramer told The Irish Times. “We haven’t expanded as much as we planned to just because things have taken off so much for us in Portugal.”
