23. Capital Living

A house-share solution offering young professionals ‘a better London experience’

Founder: Adam Goff
Founded: September 2010
Website: www.capitalliving.co.uk

Founded on three principle values, ‘simple + social + smart’, Capital Living is a premium house share company offering young professionals an easy solution for finding housemates and building a community in London. Inspired by his own experience working in the city and renting in London, Adam Goff found himself disappointed by the lack of what he perceived to be the dream ‘London lifestyle.’ Targeting an audience he knows well, Goff has carved a niche – offering premium properties in desirable locations for ‘likeminded’ individuals. With 130 existing members all with average salaries of £30,000-£60,000, the company not only provides hassle-free housing solutions (bills are always included in your one-off monthly payment) but also offers advice on each local area and tips for good places to socialise. Hitting the £1m mark in 2012 and with a track record of 70% growth year-on-year, Capital Living is looking forward to another year of expansion, with a target of increasing membership numbers to 180.
