Bringing Communities to Life and Creating a More Livable, Sustainable, and Shareable World
Launched in Vancouver, Canada in 2015, UmbraCity is the smartest and easiest way to put an umbrella in everyone’s hands when they need it. We developed a network of fully automated, smart umbrella rental kiosks that provides on-demand access to umbrellas for commuters. We partner with key strategic properties to offer the service as a unique and useful amenity to their community.
Our network of kiosks and umbrellas placed throughout the city is an innovative and effective platform for value-based marketing and advertising.
We create value for everyone we interact with.
The winter of 2014 marks the beginning of an innovative umbrella-sharing technology created by friends, Amir Entezari and Babak Assadsangabi (PhD). Vancouver’s rainy weather inspired their quest to solve the frustration of getting soaked in the rain due to the loss, breakage or simply forgetfulness in the possession of an umbrella. It produced UmbraCity – a simple, convenient and affordable service that allows everyone to mobilize freely and efficiently while adding vibrancy to the city.
The integration of modern technologies, creativity, and drive to enhance the lives of others led to the development of a fully automated umbrella rental kiosk. After proven success on countless tests at the University of British Columbia in 2016, UmbraCity started its journey to spread the solution. UmbraCity continues to grow its network, expanding its locations to provide more convenience for its users and to make rainy cities more livable.
