First travel crowdinvesting in Switzerland goes live

May 5, 2023

We, the Lucerne-based start-up Parkn'Sleep are the first tourism company in Switzerland to digitize its shares. This is made possible by the new Swiss crowdinvesting platform OOMNIUM. Thanks to digital shares, our own users will in future be able to have a say in where Parkn'Sleep's journey takes it and share in its success.

Via the crowdinvesting platform "Oomnium" any user residing in Switzerland can become a shareholder

OOMNIUM is a new Swiss crowdinvesting platform, backed by the crowdfunding pioneers of wemakeit. It turns the "crowd", people like you and me, into shareholders: People who live in Switzerland and for whom ecological, social and societal goals are just as important as a financial return can invest in companies with just a few hundred francs. At the end of a successful financing campaign, the registered shares or participation certificates are digitized.

Our users not only help determine their own journey, but also the journey of the company

For the next step in growth, Parkn'Sleep is offering its crowd investors a total of 10% of the company . "Buying shares gives everyone a chance to show that they believe in our product and share our philosophy," says Lukas Imhof. "We are asking camping enthusiasts and those willing to invest to join us at the helm and have a say in where Parkn'Sleep is headed. This commitment is very important, he feels, and pays off in user-centric business processes and a Loyal User base. Our campers and hosts should be able to travel and manage pitches through "their own product" in the future. With the capital increase from the Crowd, Parkn'Sleep intends to further advance the technical development of its platform, its reach and its internationalization. "With these three areas, we will make spontaneous, safe and at the same time environmentally friendly travel possible throughout Europe," promises Imhof. Parkn'Sleep launches its crowdinvesting campaign on on May 9 and is thus a pioneer of the new financing option "venture crowd capital".

Hosts can now work with the "own system".

By purchasing Parkn'Sleep shares, our hosts not only earn from the pitch overnight, but also participate in the overall company development of Parkn'Sleep. Not only because the shares increase in value over time, but because hosts have voting rights as official co-owners and can contribute to product improvement.

Reto Grüter (Jack) has decided to become co-owner of Parkn'Sleep. He operates the pitch "Jack's Station" in Staffelbach since summer 2021, which he set up around his parents' house, which he took over a few years ago. "I was convinced by the tourism concept right from the start because the process is very simple and I don't necessarily have to be on site," Reto tells us on his motorcycle. He travels a lot for work and is rarely at home. The pitch is set up so that each guest can manage on his own.

"When they said I could buy shares in Parkn'Sleep, I didn't have to think twice," says Reto Grüter.

His insider tip for other hosts:

For more coverage and turnover the pitch also on park4night or and charge arriving campers via Parkn'Sleep.

Continued success for the Parking App for campers

Parkn'Sleep is the first parking app for campers in Europe. It already offers 9,000 parking spaces in 23 countries and meets the needs of today's camper travelers: Independence,Spontaneity and Security. The app shows official parking spaces with live availability. Private landowners or municipalities can advertise their pitch with a few clicks, let campers stay with them and generate an income. Campers can drive to the pitches spontaneously and sign up independently on site using a QR scan and pay via the app. "In the first two years, we have continuously improved the platform and gained valuable experience," says Lukas Imhof, who is himself an enthusiastic camper. "Now the time is ripe to take the next step. We want to do that together with our community."
