Company Introduction

Creating “Must Be”

Sharing economy venture founded by Genki Kanaya in February 2009 because of the desire to create essential services for people in the world, such as electricity and gas. We develop a parking service “akippa” that allows you to easily share free monthly and personal parking lots across the country. Advantages include the ability to make reservations, the price is cheap, and the ability to pay in advance. Aiming for CEKAI with parking lots everywhere in Japan, it is possible to suppress traffic congestion and traffic accidents caused by illegal parking, to revitalize the area by resolving temporary parking shortages of tourist spots, visitingIt contributes to solving many social problems, including securing temporary parking lots by nursing care. The service exceeded 1 million members in November 2018 and started regular parking services in May 2019. In May 2018, the company has raised large funds of 810 million yen from seven companies including Sumitomo. Overseas, companies in the sharing economy such as airbnb and UBER, which are regarded as trillion yen in market capitalization, but in Japan it has not yet been regulated, and as a pioneer of IoT, big data, AI and other cutting-edge technologies are expected to challenge CEKAI.
