Get My Parking Among the Winners of Maruti Suzuki’s Startup Program




Get My Parking is proud to be announced as one of the five winners of Cohort 5 of the MAIL (Mobility and Innovation Lab) program, a startup accelerator initiative by Maruti Suzuki, the largest automotive manufacturer of India. Nanoprecise, Amigo Labs, AiBorne and NRV DesignX were the other winners among the 8 startups that had been shortlisted for the final round of Cohort 5.


Rasik Pansare, Co-Founder of Get My Parking, commented on the announcement, “We are thrilled that an automotive giant like Maruti Suzuki saw value in our proposition and selected us as one of the winners. It validates our team’s vision and hard work, illustrating how great things can be achieved via co-creation partnerships between successful corporations and startups.”


The MAIL program was launched in January 2019 by Maruti Suzuki in collaboration with GHV Accelerator, an Indo-Japanese early stage seed fund. The program is designed to identify early stage startups who have come up with game changing solutions in the field of mobility and transport, so that the OEM can provide them with an opportunity to scale their PoCs. This program is aligned with the Government’s Startup India initiative. Any start up offering technological solutions and services in this field are eligible to apply for the program. MAIL has already enabled 19 PoCs and engaged with 33 startups of which 8 were on-boarded as Maruti Suzuki’s official business partners.


Get My Parking, as an award-winning provider of IoT-based smart parking solutions, has digitized access and payment in over 2700 parking lots across 20 countries with its interoperable parking management software. GMP’s IoT module upgrades existing barrier gates to have online access, integrating various multi-vendor equipment in the car park onto a single, easy-to-control platform. GMP’s retrofit technology allows operators to take their parking business online in a short period of time without having to purchase expensive new equipment.


Having facilitated over 60 million parking transactions, Get My Parking makes parking access and payment easier for both the operator and the parker, regardless of the location and condition of the parking lot. From QR-based payment solutions that require next to no installation time to lightning-fast LPR or RFID enabled access, GMP’s range of products can streamline parking operations for smart cities, governments, corporates and urban hubs. All the consumer data is safely encrypted in the cloud-based software, while supporting offline functionality to operators.


Get My Parking also offers a white-labeled consumer app so that traditional car parks can bring back customers who prefer touchless, cashless, pre-booked parking and Value Added Services. These apps allow parkers to keep track of their sessions, parking permits and extend their sessions without returning to the parking lot. These apps are also offered to automotive companies so that their end consumers can avail digital parking from in-car navigation.


With each solution customized according to the customer’s business requirements, Get My Parking clearly fits the bill to be on Cohort 5’s list of innovative startups. The winners have been awarded paid PoCs by Maruti Suzuki. Team GMP is looking forward to breaking new ground with the new resources and connections acquired through the MAIL program.
