Founded by Alexander Shvartz, Dennis Bolgov, William Larrenaga in Boston, Parkwise is a mobile app available for Android and iOS that assists drivers in finding on street parking in real time by using crowdsourced driver data. The app also provides local information on traffic events like street closures, cleanings, and emergencies along with timely notifications to help you avoid getting a costly ticket. The app currently works all over Boston and also provides street maps for Chicago, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. During it’s time in the program, the company expanded to cover North Hudson County in NJ.
ERA has seen success in the parking space with the recent acquisition of Parking Panda, a graduate of the program, by Spot Hero.
