AppyParking has just closed a $1.5m (£1.05m) Seed round, featuring investment from Aviva Ventures, the wholly owned venture capital business of Aviva.

Irish parking solutions provider Premier Parking also took part in the round.

The parking app allows drivers to see controlled parking zones, registered driveways, and car parks in selected cities and can direct users to spot of choice, via sat nav.
