The trend for mobility startups continues as ParkBee has secured €1.8 million in funding. The investment comes from four informal investors and from InnovationQuarter, the regional development agency for the province of South Holland. ParkBee provides an innovative parking solution that makes unused parking spaces in office buildings available to the public. In doing so it works together with parking apps Parkmobile and Park-line.
