August 22, 2014 – Toronto, Canada
The TiE50 startup award was a huge deal to us, but parking in one spot forever doesn’t move us forward. That wasn’t enough for us. As a startup and a parking solutions company, we think big and we think of the future. That’s why we’re so excited to announce that we just won 2nd place in the “Smart Building” International Startup Competition in Nantong, China!
Over the past few months, LocoMobi has been hard at work preparing pitches, overviews, and technologies for this competition. With “hard work and vision”, our Co-founders Grant Furlane and Barney Pell along with Head of Manufacturing Tony Shi delivered a phenomenal performance; we were the only North American representatives to reach the finals, driving LocoMobi to new international levels!
LocoMobi is now in the works to open up a new office in China to work with Nantong and develop parking infrastructure for the ENTIRE city. Leading the parking operations for the very first “smart city” in Nantong is going to be an amazing experience, and we’ll make sure to let you know all about it!
We’ll have a press release up soon where you can read more about the competition!
