The Algerian entrepreneur initiated a platform designed to tackle the escalating issue of illegal parking. This platform aims to link drivers with vacant parking spots.

Algerian entrepreneur Oudda Abbes, a civil engineering graduate from the University of Science and Technology of Oran Mohamed Boudiaf (USTOMB), heads Garini, a mobile app for parking reservations.

Founded in 2017, Garini partners with property developers, private parking lots, and hotels to optimize their parking space usage. It aims to become a key player in the sharing economy through its parking solutions.

The startup has gained recognition in Algeria, winning first place at the 2020 Tunisian Hackathon and the logistics category at the 2021 Startup Challenge Algeria. In 2022, it was the Algerian winner of the Emerging Mediterranean Bootcamp and placed second at the GEC + Africa Regional Pitch Event. Additionally, it received the "Sustainable Cities" award from the Algerian Ministry of Knowledge Economy in 2023.

Abbes currently manages Oran's large parking lot and real estate company Oudda Isjane Immobilier. Before founding Garini, he worked as an inspection engineer at the National Technical Control of Construction Centre (CTC) from 2010 and later joined Ace Architecture as Senior Manager in 2016.
