How We Started the Future of Parking

Hello there! Here is a brief introduction to our company. We will tell you a little about how we started Spott, why we started, and our mission and our team.

As a commuter student at crowded university in South Florida, our CEO identified a real problem everyday when he had to find a parking spot before going to class. The struggle was real. One had to spend several minutes driving in circles, disputing parking spots with other commuters before finding a parking spot.

A simple concept to help parking facility users find parking much faster was drafted. A concept that has been thought of, and created, but not designed and implemented specifically for university campuses.


Driving to campus can be chaotic alone. Not finding a spot right before class or an exam can increase the stress by a lot.

Why We Believe in the Concept

In life, one gets only a few opportunities to make a difference in other people's life. It is rare, however, when one notices the opportunity and takes an action on it - exactly what we are doing!

Many of our competitors provide over elaborated solutions, that require tons of upfront implementation costs, and sometimes are helpless to the users of the parking facility. We kept it simple. Our main goal is to help students find parking faster. Commuter students deserve to be able to better manage their time so they can spend it on things that actually matter, and not be wasting time driving in circles on campus.

Time is money! We deeply believe in the value we are delivering by helping students spend less time when parking on campus.
