*Parking Karma at Your Fingertips*
KurbKarma is a mobile app that connects people who are looking for parking with people leaving desirable parking spots and establishes a peer-to-peer agreement for a parking spot exchange. Every time you give your spot to someone in need, you earn KarmaKredits. When you need a spot, you can use these KarmaKredits to reward someone who gives up their spot for you. KurbKarma was selected as a Startup Battlefield finalist at TechCrunch Disrupt NYC in May 2012. Launched for San Francisco and NYC users, the team plans to expand to other cities moving forward.

*Park with Ease*
With KurbKarma you can find awesome parking – where you need and when you need it, bringing better parking karma to the neighborhoods that need it most.

*Share Good Parking Karma*
When you share your spot with the KurbKarma community, you get a chance to ‘pay it forward’ and are rewarded with a KarmaKredit for your good deed. You can then use this KarmaKredit towards reserving a spot whenever you need one.

*Improve the City*
Take San Francisco and New York City’s parking challenges into your own hands by working together.

*Addressing Real World Challenges*
Drivers in metropolitan cities like San Francisco and New York City are faced with the ongoing dilemma of an unpredictable parking experience. Should I take a cab instead? If I must drive, will I get lucky? Will parking karma be on my side? Wasting fuel, getting aggravated, even impacting the mood for a date or appointment (or even the whole day!). Now remember the last time you “got lucky” with the perfect parking spot opening up right as you pulled up. Imagine being able to predictably command good parking karma to repeat this experience every time you drive. By connecting people who are leaving desirable parking spots with people who need them, KurbKarma aims to improve the day transforming parking from nightmare to convenience.

*KurbKarma’s Approach*
While we’d like to think most people would use the app for karma alone, we understand that a built-in incentive to publish a desirable parking spot may help. That’s why we will award any user who publishes a parking spot with a “KarmaKredit.” Two KarmaKredits can be used in exchange for a parking spot. So the golden rule truly applies. Share your space twice and earn a free space the next time you need one!

*Key Features in KurbKarma 1.0*
- GPS integration - KurbKarma can instantly help you list a spot or find a spot near your current location. It also guides you to a spot once you have a reservation.
