Randall Jamail is an entrepreneur, inventor, and investor. After founding Justice Records in 1989, Jamail turned it into a smashing success, working with artists such as Willie Nelson and Johnny Cash and gaining worldwide distribution. Justice Records was nominated for a Grammy and named Independent Label of the Year by R&R Publication.
From there, Jamail went on to invent a patented technology that unlocked unused space on compact discs and DVDs, allowing producers to embed content/media that could be accessed on demand. It was during this time that his interest in creating technology to help make people’s lives easier grew.
Years later, when Jamail happened to be passing a stadium in Austin, Texas, he had an epiphany: what if, instead of standing outside with signs advertising parking, residents could list parking spaces for drivers to rent on demand or in advance, via an app? From there, Pavemint was born–a peer-to-peer marketplace that connects people looking for parking with people who have parking to share. Over the course of the next two years, Jamail built up the team from a few people to a staff of over 40.
Pavemint, which launched on Oct. 3rd, 2017 in Los Angeles, currently has over 4,000 private parking spaces available to drivers in prime areas of the city, more than any other P2P parking app on the market. Their mission is to help drivers reach their destinations more quickly and easily and help residents make extra income, all while reducing traffic and CO2 emissions in Los Angeles.
