Co-founders Aidan Rushby (27), Logan Hall (31) and met while studying for an MBA. Together with third co-founder Tony Edwards (55), they soon recognised a shared passion for disruptive innovation and offering customers better value through technology. And their target is the property rental sector.Right now, the rental marketplace is fragmented, with varying levels of service and cost around the world. The process of agreeing a tenancy or lease is slow, expensive and fraught with uncertainty for owners and renters. Identifying quality renters and properties is complex; communication is often slow. Across the board, there’s little consistency. Disagreements and disputes are rife. There is, this entrepreneurial trio found, no global service that offers a fully integrated solution for searching and advertising of properties, scheduling of viewings, online signing of relevant lease documents and an ongoing marketplace for home management and maintenance. Movebubble is a collaborative customer platform, enabling peer-to-peer collaboration centered on the tenancy agreement and moving process. Utilizing technology, Movebubble avoids the need for an agent, offering users choice and value for money. The Movebubble platform takes users step-by-step through the process to ensure a safe and secure tenancy, while offering contextual services along the user journey such as energy, media and insurance products. The founders believe the business is inherently global. In English-speaking markets alone, they’ve identified a market of approximately 16m users in the UK, 164m in the US, and 12m in Australia.
