SpotMe Solutions

Who are we:

We are a team of SJSU students ready to make parking easier for everyone.

Using sensors to collect real-time data, our app delivers the number of available spaces open on your device so you can easily find parking.

When Steve Suarez, the founder and campaign lead for SpotMe Solutions first transferred to SJSU he discovered parking was a hot topic of discussion among students. He came up with the idea in his Total Quality Management class and continued on with the idea after winning the best innovation in the class. He later presented the idea to the main startup accelerator and incubator at SJSU, IDEA Lab. He soon started getting noticed and respected among peers after being named a finalist in on-campus competitions and securing a signed contract with SJSU.

Our mission is to improve commuters’ parking experience.

Team Objectives:

  • To purchase initial hardware equipment to begin beta-test

  • To pay for one day of testing our hardware in a laboratory for safety

  • Create a community of users through our online presence by raising funding to do marketing.

Project Objectives:

  • Rause sufficient funds to compete for our first working prototype and manufacture our products

  • Provide our team with a real entrepreneurial and startup experience by going through the process of taking a product to market

  • Bring awareness and alumni engagement to San Jose State University by having alumni connected to a current student project that will live up to the Silicon Valley standards of a successful startup

Why We Need Your Help:

Our team has worked on our product for over 250+ hours. We have done our part on creating the solution but we need the help of our community. We are full-time students and need help from those who are in a better financial situation.

The reason why we are raising money is to get our hardware UL Rated. We have a signed contract with the purchasing department from SJSU but cannot install our units in the garages on campus until we complete the UL Rated certification. 

Your support will not only help us get one step closer to making our dream a reality but also allows us to give our innovation a fighting chance to make a change. You can help us out by donating to our campaign, sharing our page and following our team's progress throughout the year. Please join us on our journey to launch SpotMe Solutions!

Please know that any donation makes a difference, even if it's lower than the minimum suggested giving level.
