Vivian, tell us more about Spotahome…
Spotahome is one of Europe’s fastest-growing startups. Since 2014, we have been reinventing real estate globally.
It is changing the way people rent their homes for stays of 30+ days, taking the process 100% online thanks to the verification process by the company’s “Homecheckers”​, professional photographers who visit the property and create all the audio-visual materials to recreate the experience of being there in-person: HD video tours, high-quality and 360-degree photos, floor plans and detailed descriptions which include information on the property and neighbourhood.

Spotahome has closed over $72M in funding, backed by top VCS from Silicon Valley and UK including the backers of Trivago acquired by Expedia in 2013, the people behind Momondo Group, Last.fm, Seedcamp, Last Second Tickets, among others.

What are the types of services that you you provide and what problems that you solve for your customers?
We are the first online platform designed for direct booking of medium and long term rental. Landlords receive booking requests only from tenants who are fully committed to renting their property and within their selected criteria.
