The founder of Realize, Horchak was inspired by the nationwide truck parking crisis, paralleled by
post-pandemic influx of un- and underutilized retail assets and event venues throughout the country. Horchak developed a business model to optimize these sites for daily and monthly truck parking and EV charging by leveraging existing onsite amenities and utilities, avoiding costly and time-consuming remodeling, permitting and approvals.
Prior to Realize, Horchak founded Zerv, a plug-and-play retrofit solution that facilitates mobile access and remote facility management over top of existing access control systems for commercial, flex space and multifamily property managers and parking operators. He exited that company and is now building Realize.
