Smarking is a group of MIT PhDs, stellar software engineers, and seasoned business professionals who set out on a journey to bring cutting edge solutions to the parking world. Frustrated that unlike many other industries, the $100 billion park industry (worldwide) still doesn’t have state of the art data analytics or yield management technologies, we are passionate about pushing the industry forward. In a short eighteen-month period, Smarking has attracted a tremendous amount of customers and grown our team into one with experts from both parking and tech. With great passion and continuous innovation, we are working on the frontier of the parking industry, shaping a bright future together with our customers.

How to invest in Smarking stock?

Accredited investors can buy pre-IPO stock in companies like Smarking through EquityZen funds. These investments are made available by existing Smarking shareholders who sell their shares on our platform. Typically, these are early employees who need to fund a life event – house, education, etc. Accredited investors are then offered the opportunity to invest in this stock through a fund, like those used by hedge funds serving large investors. While not without risk, investing in private companies can help investors reach goals of portfolio diversification, access to potential growth and high potential return.

If I invest, how do I exit my investment?

In that case, we will distribute the shares and/or cash to you directly. The second way is through an Express Deal on EquityZen, if eligible. An Express Deal allows you to sell your allocation of private shares in a given private company to another investor on EquityZen's marketplace. More information on Express Deals can be found here and exit information can be found here.
