What is your background briefly?
I’ve been working as an ICT project manager for large companies and I’ve been building and maintaining enterprises as an entrepreneur for nearly three decades, with experiences varying from ICT, online magazines and video production companies to the Parksen Parking app and now with our new the Parksen Green, Smart and Connected City Platform.
Does it seem like a logical background to what you do now?
Being an entrepreneur and having an ICT background really works.
I’ve been working in the parking industry now for over a decade and with that experience and the knowledge of the parking industry that I’ve gotten over the years, we, me and my team of experts, are now developing cutting-edge parking technology for smart cities and smart vehicle owners.
Give us a one-minute pitch for what you are doing now.
We are developing a green, smart and connected parking platform with smart IoT devices, AI and blockchain technology, and a parking app for vehicle owners and cities all across the globe.
The platform will make money based on a kickback fee every time a parking session is started from our platform, but will be free-to-use for cities and commercial parking providers. Making the platform free-to-use for cities and commercial parking providers will help them save a lot on costs for development, hardware and maintenance costs, and gives us an edge while implementing the platform to cities and providers all across the globe.
As we already work with 113 municipalities here in The Netherlands, we are looking to finalize our expansion to 14 EU member states, the USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.
Moreover, after our business trip to China, we are happy to see our negotiations to enter 60 Chinese cities moving forward towards their final conclusion, allowing us to start a pilot in Xiamen during the beginning of 2019.
As we grow both here in the EU and outside the continent, we aim to bring a global parking solution into fruition.
Why did you get involved with this ICO?
I have led Parksen from its start and through our growth here in the Netherlands. As we are looking to grow on the global stage, my belief in the ICO world showed me that if you have a working product, a client base, a clear road of growth and the vision to implement it all – you will raise the capital needed and achieve our goals.
We have a working platform, a working app with a client base and the team to implement our vision on a global stage. We are ready! The investors that look for real solutions, both tested and with a working product, should join us on the path to global growth and expansion.
Why do you think it is such a powerful idea?
There isn’t a cloud solution like we have at all yet. There are some local players that have an app that works in one or two cities, but there are no global players that have an app and a full back office system for cities and commercial parking providers that work all across the globe yet.
The Parksen platform allows drivers to find and pay for their parking spaces, showing them the closest one to their destination, saving them money, time and frustration, as well as helping to reduce CO2 emissions.
How can people find out more about 1. The ICO 2. you & your work?

Anything else you’d like to add?
The Green, Smart and Connected City Platform utilizes the IOTA and Ethereum blockchain, smart contracts, IoT devices, artificial intelligence and a real-time parking app.
The Parksen parking app, running in over 113 Dutch cities, allows drivers to find and pay for their parking spaces, showing them the closest one to their destination, saving them money, time and frustration, as well as helping to reduce CO2 emissions.
For those investors who ask, correctly, “how do we make money?” Well, we receive a 5% kickback fee on all parking transactions that were activated by our cloud-based (SAAS) solution, and by distributing smart, low priced IoT devices and a free-to-use platform to commercial parking providers and local, regional and national governments, you can imagine how much we can generate when we disrupt a 100 billion dollar industry.
How can people contact you & learn more about you?
You can get in touch directly on social media and of course on Telegram.
