Dublin-based Parkio seek to raise €2m

The Irish Times - Business - - TECHNOLOGY -

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.”
