We match prospective tenants not only into homes that they will love but also algorithmically suggest neighbourhoods that will make you the happiest based on your interests, personality, and demographics.

We’re different because we give users who are typically struggling in the fragmented rental market, a seamless experience using our algorithmic approach.   About Dwelo   Dwelo turns ordinary apartments into smart apartments where lights, locks, and thermostats are connected to the internet. Dwelo sells directly to the owners of apartment communities, enabling them to offer a modern amenity to their residents. Residents love Dwelo's simple-to-use mobile app, which they can use to control their home from anywhere: their bed, the office, or the beach. And with a web app built specifically for the complex needs of the multifamily industry, Dwelo helps managers run their rental operations more efficiently and at lower cost.   About Leaseful   Leaseful is the first peer-to-peer marketplace for college subleasing. Currently, students look to Craigslist and Facebook to fill their subleasing needs, but the process is handled almost entirely offline, making it inconvenient and insecure. Leaseful introduces trust, transparency, and ease to college subleasing. With identity verification, background screening, and secure payment processing, Leaseful ensures that students never have to worry about subleasing again.   About Skyrise   Skyrise is a communications & concierge platform for commercial office buildings that connects tenants and their employees with building staff and administration. By encouraging community and facilitating communication within an office building, Skyrise provides landlords and their teams with deep insights into the people that work in their spaces on a daily basis. This allows them to attract and retain the right tenants while providing them with the data they need to invest smartly into the operation and growth of their assets.       Real Estate Tech Startups to Descend on Dallas for Motive Accelerator Demo Event MOTIVE
