“We can fix this.”
Parkade co-founder and CEO Evan Goldin was tired of hunting for parking on the street when visiting his parents condo, and also frustrated seeing so many housing developments get rejected, downsized or filled with too much parking because of neighbors' concerns about overflow.
So, he co-founded Parkade with Curtis Rogers and Ben Plowman.
Prior to Parkade, he ran product development, design, data and engineering at Chariot Transit, a high-tech shuttle operator acquired by Ford Smart Mobility. He left in 2018 to start Parkade.
Before Chariot, he was the first product manager at Zimride, which became Lyft. From 2012 to 2015, he helped scale Lyft nationwide, and turn it into a household name. Along with Curtis Rogers, he created the Lyft for Work product line, which was Lyft's first foray into B2B products. Lyft for Work now has annual sales in the billions of dollars.
