Young Entrepreneur Series – Bestparking.com

November 1, 2011

Benjamin Sann was 16 years old when Bestparking.com was founded.

Bestparking.com, just incorporated this year, provides maps of parking garages and their ever-fluctuating rates, allowing users to compare different prices at different times.

Originally NYCgarages.com, the company has since expanded to more than 30 cities and includes over 75 airports. Sann has partnerships with parking companies, allowing his site to offer reservations on daily and monthly spots.

An interesting note – Sann took the conventional ‘family business’ model and stood it on its head. That’s right, he’s got the idea and the business and he runs the company with his step father. This kind of collaboration is advantageous and can give the company a unique perspective.

Benjamin saw a need and started a business out of that need. You can do it too. Visit www.smckids.com/learnandearn to get started learning how to start a business. Enter the Grow Your Own Business Challenge!
