On May 2-3, we’re going to host the EU-Startups Summit in Barcelona. It will be the 6th edition of our annual flagship event – and with up to 1,200 startup founders and investors from across Europe also our biggest one so far! Today we’re excited to announce another highlight and two additional speakers:
Badi Founder & CEO Carlos Pierre and Spotahome CEO & Co-founder Alejandro Artacho will join us for a panel discussion about the future of the online flat rental market! The two founders are just perfect for this discussion, since both are innovating and growing rapidly in this field.
Spotahome was founded in Madrid in 2014 and is a PropTech startup focused on changing the property sector worldwide. Its marketplace offers the most complete listings of apartments, rooms, studios and student residences for residential renting of over 30 days through an online booking platform with no in-person visits, which allows tenants and property owners to save time and money. The Spotahome team is itself responsible for visiting and personally checking the properties published by the company. They take photos, record high-definition videos of the property and neighbourhood, create detailed floor plans and write honest descriptions. The fast-growing startup offers its platform already in English, German, Spanish, French, Italian, Polish, Portuguese and Turkish. In total, Spotahome has raised $72 million in venture capital.
Badi was founded in September of 2015 in Barcelona. The fast-growing startup provides a new way of flat sharing, making city-center living affordable for everyone by changing how flat sharers connect and interact. Badi enables you to list or look for available rooms in shared flats and find flatmates according to your age, tastes and hobbies. It’s a peer-to-peer marketplace of non-vacational shared flats which already offers its service in English, Spanish, Catalan, Italian, French and Dutch. The Badi team is convinced that AI and UX/UI will define the proptech industry in the future, and the startup set out to reshape the Real Estate market worldwide. In total, Badi has raised about $45 million in venture capital so far.
