Loughborough graduate working as head of business development for new innovative start up

A Loughborough University graduate is a part of an exciting new start-up that revolutionises the way tenancy agreements are transacted.

Tom Mundy, an Economics and Accounting graduate who formerly ran TOMS Fudge, is now head of business development at UK PropTech start up Goodlord.

Goodlord simplify the typical tenancy agreement through their software platform by generating and processing all paperwork electronically helping to save time and reduce cost.

The company has launched its first crowdfunding appeal through CrowdCube to raise £450,000 in the next 40 days. 

It will use the funding to address the staggering demand for the platform by building and growing the engineering and sales teams.

Since its launch three months ago, Goodlord has experience spectacular growth in terms of users and money transacted. The company has processed a total of £2,500,000 million in deposits from hundreds of tenants, and has seen a 900% increase in real estate agents’ sign ups from across the country.

As well as tenancy agreements, the platform which is open to estate agents, landlords and tenants, also processes documents ranging from contracts and reference checks to deposit payments.

CEO and co-founder of Goodlord, Richard White, said: “Since Goodlord’s launch in February this year, the company has seen an incredible uptake in usage, and we’re excited to kick off our crowdfunding round to take the company to its next stage of growth.

“Our vision is to revolutionise the way property is transacted, both rentals and sales. The property market is notoriously fragmented and today, the paperwork is still incredibly slow and inefficient. Goodlord is on a mission to fix that.”
