About pullup Technologies

Parking is a nightmare in crowded cities. pullup has designed a versatile P2P iOS & Android app that allows users to find and monetize parking spots. The departing user posts a spot for a certain amount of time and price; the arriving user picks and navigates to it - pulls up, and.. done!

pullup is designed by a team of engineers who drive..  who suffer from the lack of parking…  who made a simple app, with a simple goal - democratization of parking/parking-sharing.

While pullup takes (~20%) of every transaction, we undercut the competition (decks at $40-75/night) by allowing users to choose a competitive price for their spot, based on other spots available in the area.

We're looking for seed funding ranging from $2 million for getting pullup to 100-1000 daily users. Primarily we would like to develop a marketing campaign to target a focussed area in Manhattan (then Nationally). pullup has a strong IP position bolstered by an in-depth freedom to operate opinion (provisional filed 2015, non-provisional filed 2016, trademarks for design and logo).

pullup is a disruptive technology changing the way we park. Assuming 1% market capture (2 million cars that enter Manhattan daily) we estimate $20,000/day with a minimal posting price of $1 (a steal in any downtown!).
