Mayor Boris Johnson Welcomes ParkJockey to London!

Boris Johnson ParkJockey

Today was an extremely exciting day! Not only was the sun out in London but at a high-profile event held in the heart of the London TechHub, Mayor Boris Johnson unveiled his until now secretly-kept plans for the first ever London Technology Week. The Mayor was optimistic and confident that it will contend on a similar global scale to London Fashion Week, which was, of course, “music to the ears” of the London’s Tech City.

Our London Heads of Operations, Kamal Rajput and Stefan Friederichs, along with our Managing Partner attended the event. A host of leading figures in tech, such as Michael Acton Smith of MindCandy, Facebook VP-EMEA Nicola Mendelsohn and Oscar-winning CEO of Framestore, Sir William Sargent, were present.

The announcement has already stirred up interest in the press and reflects the Mayor’s ambition to make London the “tech capital of the world.”

As importantly, Mr. Johnson welcomed three new firms to the capital, one of which is (drumroll)  –  PARKJOCKEY !!!

In an instant, we were tweeted about and also made it into the London Evening Standard, along with several blogs and London24. Channel 9 of Australia also interviewed our Heads of Operations for a quick ParkJockey demo. They seemed pretty impressed!
