The community marketplace allowing users to manage and maintain rental properties from anywhere in the world
Founders: Aidan Rushby, Logan Hall and Tony Edwards
Founded: October 2013
Citing the traditional estate agency model as “archaic,” Movebubble was created to shake up the lettings industry as we know it; the collaborative platform connects property owners, renters and contractors to a trusted marketplace, allowing users to “manage and maintain their homes from anywhere in the world and on any device.”
Launched just a few months ago, Movebubble already has eight employees working within its ambitious and innovative business model, which contains a number of revenue streams – Movebubble charges renters a £50 security fee as well as utilising an affiliate model for ‘added-value recommendations’ such as energy and insurance. With 3,500 registered users in just a few months and 5,000 unique visits to the site a week with no outbound marketing, their ambitious targets seem within reach. On the verge of closing a second round of funding, the young company has big plans for the future and with an identified user base of 16m in the UK and nearly 200m globally – there’s no reason why we shouldn’t be hearing a lot more from Movebubble.
