It all started with Music. We went to see a concert in Paris and decided to extend our visit and work remotely for a week from there, get some inspiration, meet new people. It sounded like an awesome plan but we ended up finding it hard to spot cafes in the area with good wi-fi to work from; we didn’t really nail it at identifying the best networking events for our areas of interest and, most of all, we spent too much money on a tiny apartment.
Walking to Pompidou one night, we reflected on how cities are not optimizing the use of living space: people leaving their houses empty when traveling, while others pay high rates per night to stay in a hotel or Airbnb that take away actual local living space. It’s sad how the real local experience seems to get harder and harder to find.
That’s how we came up with the idea for SWAPPERS, a house-swapping platform that connects like-minded people. We took our idea to Acredita Portugal and we’re now finalists in the Tech category!
This is a no turning back adventure and we couldn’t be more excited! We believe there are more people who appreciate the value SWAPPERS could bring into our lives. Subscribe to our mission and join the ride!
