Founders Friday with Sean from REZI - Shared screen with speaker view
Dr. Damien L. Duchamp
Good morning everyone!
Rezi is a marketplace. What did you do to get the initial supply (I’m assuming the initial supply was apartment listings)?
Piggy backing the question about supply, what tactics and channels specifically worked best for you to connect with and close building owners and managers?
Lets jump to the other side of the marketplace - acquiring users. What is the most challenging part about acquiring new apartment hunters?
have you ever felt lonely as a founder? how did you find people with shared vision and how did they support you?
are you concerned about the RE risk you take on by leasing the apartments yourself?
Are you a tech founder or are your partners that? If you are not, how did you find your tech founder?
What do you think is going to happen to leasing velocity and the rental market generally if social distancing and isolation are the new normal for 1-3 years?
hi! there’s a lot of risks that you claim to be covering (100% filling of apts, backing up tenant credit losts, etc.). sounds great for Landlords, but have you calculated some stats to estimate your loses to perform those perks? thanks 🙏
Sean, do you work with owners / Mgrs of Section 8 properties? Or: have you decided whether/not to have a relationship with HUD / state housing ?

@Dan R., my Q, too!
I am having trouble with zoom
can you ask for me? thanks
Hi Sean, after you got Morpheus and could deliver better outcomes (more money) for landlords, how did you get past customer fear? Were they afraid of you canabalizng their role?
Dr. Damien L. Duchamp
*Everyone please make sure you're on mute if you are cleaning your desk :)
thank you SO much!!!
This massively transformative change is going to be crushing to established long-lived companies, but as startups, we have the opportunity to start on a level playing field.
Go big or go home!
got it 👌 thank you Sean!
Sean: my Sec. 8 Q: HUD imposes many reporting requirements, regulations. THAT is really what I'm asking about. Is that a landlord type compatible with you?
as you scale , how you manage cashflow and the initial capital outlay that is needed?
HI Sean. How important to you think the YC experience was in regards to where you are today? Also-what about your YC application do you believe gave you an edge in terms of acceptance by the accelerator?
How do you validate that you’re building something the customer wants? Thanks y’all!
Amazing as always!!!!
Great meetup, Aaron, Sean!
