GoHouse is B2B2C real estate marketplace which utilizes AI power to provide end users with assisted priority filtering on real estate properties search.

What worked - in a little bit of an unexpectedly good way - for me, was that some VC firm scouts reached out through Connectd to ask me to present to them what I'm doing.

Q&A with

Can you tell us about GoHouse.ai?

GoHouse is B2B2C real estate marketplace which utilizes AI power to provide end users with assisted priority filtering on real estate properties search.

It helps users to find real estate properties faster to search what matches their criteria, and also it helps agents to improve lead conversions.

Why did you join the Connectd network?

GoHouse started as a side project between me and two of my friends. We thought we needed to raise some funds to switch to it full time. Connected I found was a useful resource to look for VC firms or angel investors.

Can you tell us about the Google networking event you attended in London?

So it was very interesting, very new; it was my first time experiencing this kind of event. I really liked the speakers on the panel, and what was really lucky for me was that after the session, I was able to speak with one of the panelists, Dan Bowyer.

He was very interested in what we are doing and confirmed it's a good idea, but he said we are too early for big VC firms.This advice was very useful for me but what I found the most useful at the event was hearing from the speakers who were the founders, learning about how they found funding, as this helped me to pivot in my fundraising. It was really a mindset changing experience.

How have you found it building your network?

So I published my dashboard on the platform and requested connections to many of them, and also I published a requirement for an advisor. But what worked - in a little bit of an unexpectedly good way - for me, was that some VC firm scouts reached out through Connectd to ask me to present to them what I'm doing. So that worked well and I got some new experience talking to these people.

How have you found posting on the platform?

I posted a role requirement and a few people responded. I decided not to react at the moment because right now I'm figuring out what the product is going to be. I need to pivot the product and then I will understand better what kind of advisors I'm looking for. But the platform definitely works - people react, people respond, they apply to the role and it really works.

Can you tell us about your growth plans for your startup?

My plans are to launch MVP in three to six months to start to build our user base. And with that user base, even with non-paying customers, I will be able to go back to VC firms or the angel investors if we need it, because there are chances that we will just organically grow. We’ll go into production right after New Year, firstly in the Miami, New York and San Francisco areas. We may also look at Boston, because we just met some interesting people which has presented an opportunity in Boston.
