The Company: Houzen is an early stage fast growing property tech venture (~30% month on month). Houzen has been winning some of the most prestigious landlord accounts and competes (and outperforms) head on with some of the largest RE agencies (and giving them a headache).

The ambition: We have rewritten the rules of lettings in London already, and are already pitching for global accounts in Ireland and Germany. In 2018, we aspire to expand to new cities across UK and potentially pan-Europe. Eventually, we aspire to be a strong global player.
Our customers: are some of the largest landlords in London (who own 500-1000 or more units) and small and mid size letting agencies (we also have a cool product for tenants, with exclusive deals from Uber, Revolut etc.)
Our pitch (to landlords): We find tenants within 5 days!
Our vision (for 2018): To find tenants within 24 hours!
