Founder and CEO, Oonee
Shabazz Stuart is the founder and CEO of Oonee, a company that focuses on creating smart, mobility infrastructure for cities and public spaces. Recently, the company unveiled a patent-pending modular pod that provides secure bicycle parking as well as placemaking amenities. This free-standing structure is capable of being installed in less than a day and can be configured to a wide variety of shapes, sizes and “looks” in order to accommodate evolving site conditions. The company aims to create a network of over 20,000 secure parking spaces in New York, as well as networks in other cities.
Previously, Stuart served as Deputy Director of Operations at the Downtown Brooklyn Partnership, where he helped oversee a portfolio of more than 1.1 million square feet of public space, along with a number of other capital programs and initiatives. At DBP, his signature achievements included installing a pedestrian counting camera and analytics program for the community as well as administering a $140,000 state grant for local facade improvements.
