Finding a parking spot in the city on the night of the big game could be as easy as posting a com­ment on Face­book or down­loading a song on iTunes, say North­eastern Uni­ver­sity stu­dents Chris Hoogew­erff and Neil Hannah.

The two young entre­pre­neurs recently cre­ated Hello Parking, an online ser­vice that will allow cus­tomers in Boston to reserve pri­vate parking spots for $15 per day on any mobile device with Internet access.

Hoogew­erff and Hannah, who plan to pay land­lords and prop­erty owners a monthly fee to manage as many as 200 vacant parking spots behind build­ings, in alleys and in pri­vate lots, hope to expand the ser­vice to frus­trated dri­vers in Chicago, New York and San Fran­cisco within the next 18 months.

We’re taking the stress out of finding a parking spot,” says Hoogew­erff, a junior entre­pre­neur­ship and accounting dual major who likens Hello Parking to a “vir­tual flag-​​waving system.”

As Hannah, a senior mechan­ical engi­neering major, puts it, “We want to be a large crowd-​​sourcing garage that we own, but don’t have to build ourselves.”

Hoogew­erff and Hannah pitched their idea to angel investors and ven­ture cap­i­tal­ists on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange on Feb. 27, as part of the third annual Kairos Society Global Summit. The meeting brings together the brightest stu­dents from around the globe to tackle world­wide problems.

The duo is seeking $50,000 to get Hello Parking up and run­ning in Boston within the next six weeks, and met with three angel investors at the New York event, who asked the young entre­pre­neurs to send them their busi­ness plan.

Our ven­ture is low-​​risk for these investors,” says Hoogew­erff, who left the summit with a huge stack of busi­ness cards and a new crop of net­working con­tacts in Ger­many, Eng­land and China. “The con­cept we’re pre­senting is simple, but it promises to solve a problem affecting almost any driver in all of the major cities we’ll be targeting.”

Fred­erick Crane, an exec­u­tive pro­fessor of entre­pre­neur­ship and inno­va­tion at North­eastern, helped Hoogew­erff and Hannah for­mu­late their busi­ness plan for Hello Parking. The student-​​entrepreneurs, he said, have found a “veiled oppor­tu­nity” in an oth­er­wise untapped market.

It looks like Hello Parking is becoming a reality,” he said. “The stu­dents found a source of supply for a com­modity in demand and made this match so that buyer and seller both win while Hello Parking gets a piece of this exchange process.”

Hello Parking, Hannah esti­mates, could be worth as much as $5 mil­lion in the next five years, but that’s loose change com­pared to the $300 mil­lion com­pany he and Hoogew­erff plan to build.

The long-​​term goal, says Hannah, is to develop a real-​​time vacancy out­sourcing appli­ca­tion through which cus­tomers can pur­chase a parking spot in any lot or garage for a com­pet­i­tive rate.

We want to dis­rupt the market by under­cut­ting garage owners and offering an alter­na­tive for them to profit even fur­ther through Hello Parking,” says Hannah, who com­pares this busi­ness model to that of Amazon or Expedia. “We want to be the name that people rec­og­nize when it comes to parking.”
