Josh Wong, CEO of, explores their journey from a car park operator to a pioneering online platform revolutionizing the way people rent and buy parking spaces in Hong Kong.

What led to the creation of

We were once a carpark operator. When our customers moved houses or offices, they came to ask us if we had another parking location on the other side of the city.
