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 great speaker who will join us this year. It’s Djordy Seelmann, the CEO of HousingAnywhere.
Founded in 2009, HousingAnywhere is an online marketplace that brings together demand and supply of housing for international students and young professionals. On its platform, renters can search for a place, chat directly with local advertisers, book online, and pay first month’s rent to reserve their room. Starting out with just a single room in Rotterdam, the platform now has a listing of more than 80,000 rooms in over 500 cities around the world.
Before becoming CEO of the company a year ago, Djordy was COO of HousingAnywere for four years, and helped to scale the startup into a global marketplace with rooms available in over 100 countries and with a team of 100+ people.
At the EU-Startups Summit, Djordy will speak on a panel about the future of the online flat rental market along with the CEOs of Spotahome and Badi, and share his experiences scaling HousingAnywhere into a global housing marketplace.
