SA on-demand startup ParkUpp acquired by Docklands Ventures

South African startup ParkUpp, a marketplace that connects owners of parking spaces with companies and individuals who need parking, has been acquired by real estate investment company Docklands Ventures. Initially launched in 2016 with the goal of improving the parking experience for shopping centres, ParkUpp pivoted in 2018 after realising the market was too small and launched with its new model in 2019. It allows property owners to list their parking spaces on the platform for free, with users able to book spaces for short or long periods, pay via the site, and get access to the space.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t report how many have a CDP already in place, which would put the other values in perspective. It does seem that CDPs are a relatively low priority: they rank sixth on the list of new systems and eighth on the list of systems to replace.
