We're here to make renting better. It's that simple.
Why are we doing this?
More and more people around the globe are renting, for longer. At some point in our lives it's something we all do. Think about it - even if you aren't renting right now, we bet that you have people in your life who are. The thing is, the way we all rent hasn't seen much innovation in the last 10 years despite the emergence of amazing new technologies and shifting economic climate.
Globally, demand for rentals is far outstripping the supply - creating an increasingly competitive marketplace for Renters in the urban environment. We're not talking about a luxury commodity here, we're talking about where and how people live... where they call home.
Founded in 2013 and based in Cape Town, South Africa, Ekaya is a young and ambitious technology startup out to make the world of renting better by building products that create trust and delight in the property rental space.
Ekaya graduated from the Summer 2014 88mph Accelerator Program, broke boundaries at SparkUp Live and cleaned-up in the Dragon's Den. We've attracted more than R8 million in investment from a premier line-up of investors and industry players and established partnerships with top-tier commercial and technical partners. Together, and with our customers, we are building the next generation rental ecosystem.
