The quality of the office design affects our lives, health and happiness dramatically. Lack of good planning results in poor performance, thus bad business results of the company overall.
Miro and I were managers in a dynamic software company for more than 5 years and we experienced the space planning problem ourselves. We relocated often and every time we struggled to plan our team rooms in the best possible way. Most of the time we failed because we lacked design and architecture skills. We didn’t know the rules nor had the professional software for such tasks.
We decided to make a tool suitable for non-professional designers to let them plan and manage their office. Let’s call it ‘Do It Yourself’ office space planning.
Then we coded a lot in the evenings. We’ve learned a lot and met a lot of interesting people, including our Chief Architect Pavel Yanev who joined the team. We left our day jobs. Then at some point we were invited to apply to Pi Labs.
We were extremely happy because it’s called ‘Property Innovation Labs’ and we are doing property innovation software. So we thought “that should be it”. Then we researched it and found all the great mentors there. We checked the place – Second Home. For us doing architecture and design software it will be a pleasure to be in that place. The application was quick and smooth. We couldn’t believed it when we were accepted.
Now we are here, ready to relocate to London and start our journey in the exciting world of the proptech.
