As a way to spark innovation and link professionals together, the Florida Venture Forum hosted their annual capital conference showcasing 20-25 of Florida’s most rapidly growing start-ups. Each start-up had the opportunity to present to an audience of angel investors, venture capitalists, and industry professionals. The two day networking event consisted of various panels discussing perspectives on the landscapes of investing, fundraising, and developing strategic operations. The company exhibitions ranged across industries from retractable golf clubs, to payment processing apps, to cutting edge healthcare technologies, and to other market disrupting entities. ParkJockey was honored to present at the largest capital conference in the state of Florida. The opportunity increased ParkJockey’s exposure within Florida’s start-up ecosystem as well providing several prospective investors and customers. The event was covered in several local publications, including The Miami Herald.
ParkJockey was recently featured in the business section of the Miami Herald as one of eight thriving apps set to enhance urban living. Aside from the individual convenience of the app, the Miami Herald makes the point that, “An estimated 30 percent of traffic is actually looking for a parking place, allowing ParkJockey to make a difference in reducing carbon emissions and city traffic congestion”.

We have lots from as far south as Coconut Grove to as far north as Port Canaveral”. Scott continued, “it’s very simple — you open up the app or website and search. We have location and event-based search. So you could search for American Airlines Arena or Wynwood or III Points, then the app will pull up the closest locations in the area at the best rates. It’s one touch parking”.
