In 2013, a group of friends faced a typical problem almost every Aussie had experienced: no parking for the big game.

Running late and circling the full car park near MCG for a Hawthorn match, Rob Crocitti and Michael Nuciforo had a lightbulb moment: "What if we could just ask someone to park at their place for a small fee?".

This sparked the idea for the duo to create Parkhound, an app connecting drivers with available parking spots at a fraction of the cost compared to councils and private operators.

The main vision for Parkhound was simple. Built to mirror AirBnb’s business model, Parkhound is a marketplace that connects property owners who have spare spaces with drivers who are looking for parking.

Property owners can list their parking space for free and motorists can book the time and location they want for an agreed price. It’s simple, secure and cheap.

Following the acquisition by Spacer Marketplaces in 2017 and led by CEO Mike Rosenbaum, Parkhound has emerged to become Australia’s number one parking marketplace offering thousands of hidden-gem spaces at affordable rates.
