FlatMateMe: The Italian Startup That Challenges Craigslist

San Francisco, California, February 17, 2016 — /EPR NETWORK/ — Born in Milan at the beginning of 2015, the Italian startup FlatMateMe (http://www.flatmateme.com) is now ready to approach one of the toughest markets in the world: the Bay Area rental market.

“We are challenging the existing approach used by Craigslist introducing a smart and simple concept. ” says Francesco Magagnino, one of the three co-founders, already manager at Accenture and organizer for TEDx. “We believe flatsharing is lifesharing: so why choose your next roommate blindfolded, when technology can help you find the perfect one based on common Facebook friends and interests?”.

The idea is simple and has already proven its effectiveness: using Facebook friends and interests data to help people looking for a room and roommates.

How does it work?
In addition to all the basic information (location, monthly fee, pictures of the room) for each listed room FlatMateMe shows if you actually have common friends and interests with the roommates.
On the other hand, if you are looking for a roommate, the website lets you manage all the applicants on one single dashboard. There you are able to see all the friends and interests you share with each one of them on top of the personalized FlatMateMe profile, in order to find your perfect match.

“We noticed that when searching for a roommate on Craigslist, people were trying to find out as much as possible of the applicants looking at their social profiles. And here is where FlatMateMe steps in: we address precisely this needs responding with a unique dedicated platform.”

FlatMateMe is now ready to help all those looking for a flatmate or a room in California. The adventure just started.
