Tell us more about yourself and how you guys came together to create your startup idea?
We have known each other a little longer through mutual friends. At the end of last year we talked about the possibilities of making a difference together in the real estate industry. Nico comes from the traditional real estate business and has previously worked in acquisition at a family office. Tobias, on the other hand, comes from the digital world of real estate and was responsible for product and project management within smart building. This foundation is a decisive advantage for our know-how and understanding of the real estate market to create a useful product.
What do you think is the most urgent problem that needs to be solved in the real estate sector?
The biggest problem in the real estate industry is the lack of truly efficient collaboration internally – across teams and externally. Due to the many independent solutions for each area of a company, these devour enormous resources. Time that could be used sensibly and effectively if systems and teams could collaborate with each other.
How is your solution going to change the real estate arena in Berlin?
Our solution addresses exactly the problem described above. We enable a team-spanning cooperation completely in one tool. Forgotten logins, additional costs of individual solutions are a thing of the past, because with assetbird you can login once and have access to all really relevant resources that are needed for your daily work. For example, you save 2 hours of work time per day and achieve the same work in less time.
Berlin has always been at the forefront for innovations and different mindsets just as for the real estate industry. With our solution we want to contribute something positive to the real estate innovation community.
Your phone rings – who would you like it to be on the other side and why?
We are collaborating strongly with our clients. So usually, a client would be on the other side 😉 We would appreciate the call. So far, digital innovations are still underrepresented in the real estate industry. Having an open ear for new developments and opportunities is crucial. True to the motto “keep up with the times”, otherwise you will be overtaken at some point.
Often we and our clients learn to better understand their workflows and opportunities for improvements. The best companies we find are eager to act fast and implement small improvements incrementally.
Where do you find your passion in this project?
With assetbird we can drive useful product innovation and a great innovation culture ourself:
- Nico cares about good relationships with all people. He is driven by the added value of products and networks with a culture of collaboration.
- Tobias loves to enthuse people and ease their lives with great products. At the same time he loves to build innovative business models and great teams.
