[ibimage==26822==Large==none==self==ibimage_align-center]This week's feature interview is with Mark Lawrence, Co-Founder at SpotHero. Mark spins the tale of how he grew SpotHero early on to 10,000 users, with a horrific 42 step form to reserve a parking space.  Since then its been fame and glory for Mark's team, crushing it in major markets across the country.  How did he and his blue tshirt posse do it?

 

This week's music feature is Chicago's own The Sueves.
