Chicago Innovation Award Winner


Winner in: 2017
Winning Product: HeroConnect
Winner Category: Chicago Innovation Award
Industry: Technology

After building an industry-leading parking marketplace via website and app, SpotHero

introduced HeroConnect, a parking mobility platform in 2017, encompassing an open API, SDK

and embeddable web widget tools. The HeroConnect Platform provides third parties the

development tools necessary to seamlessly offer transactional parking functionality in their

native platforms. This allows the broader transportation industry, from automakers to car rental,

navigation and data companies, to put SpotHero in their cars, equipment and apps. The

innovation serves the mission of a painless, holistic urban mobility ecosystem by connecting

automotive and related technology with the broadest network of parking supply in North

America. Amid the next wave of vehicle innovation for the drivers of tomorrow, it eliminates

hurdles and improves the experience of every journey.
