Wonego is a recently-launched London proptech business that uses modern dating techniques to match homeseekers with the perfect flatmates.
Using a short, innovative, questionnaire, Wonego matches flatmates and landlords based on property needs, lifestyle and personality compatibility. The highest scored matches are presented to users in their dashboard and they are then able to book a room online.
Co-founders Stephan Gasteyger and Stuart Atkinson worked in the financial services and founded the start-up after leaving the industry and graduating from Silicon Valley startup incubator: The Founder Institute.
Gasteyger says a gap in the rental market inspired the pair to launch Wonego.
"After working in financial services and always being on the go, we saw a gap in the market for a product that finds you a household with like-minded individuals, rather than existing websites which focus primarily on your budget and location requirements,” he says.
“Replying to random adverts and judging people over a short conversation is the old fashioned way of flat sharing -it may get you a flatmate, but how can you know if they are really compatible with you?”
Over 1,500 members are currently using Wonego and the platform was selected as one of Startup Grinds' top 75 European startups, and was given the opportunity to be an exhibitor at their recent June Conference.
