Municipalities are currently facing tough sustainability and mobility challenges. How can they reduce CO2-emissions and simultaneously put their streets to better use? At ParkBee, we are on a mission to give space back to the city. We are a fast-growing scale-up and develop smart, data-driven technology to make underutilised parking space available to the public.

    • Creating and executing public outreach campaigns on sustainability subjects.
    • Collaborating with public affairs agencies to get a faster connection to get in closer contact with local politicians, influencers etc.
    • Creating a sustainability strategy and helping ParkBee making a huge impact.
  • Enhancing a strong relationship with local authorities and get their commitment. Eventually open-up new car parks in cooperation with municipalities. 
  • Building and monitoring relationships with all parties involved in working with ParkBee. This involves all stakeholders involved in ParkBee locations such as VVE’s and housing corporations.
  • Understand the needs of stakeholders to refine and optimise the ParkBee product 
  • Creating an operational plan towards externally involved parties for the launch of new ParkBee locations to ensure that all parties are involved and informed.
