    Insights from this Episode
    Personally, I think that finding ways to fundamentally make existing stock more sustainable is something that's super interesting – Mikkel We realised that technology clearly holds a lot of potential for enabling the making of a real estate better – Mikkel Wouldn't it be nice if one could build an organisation where people come, and then they really feel free. And they really feel like they are allowed to express themselves as you are? – Mikkel How you build cities really defines how we get to interact as humans - Mikkel We realised what we really cared most about using those years to do, was to fundamentally try to make better products and try to nudge the industry in a direction that we subjectively felt was a good one – Mikkel We are just the results of our habits. So the biggest obstacle to changing something in the world is that you need to change people's habits - Mikkel

    -  Change is risk of course, it always is, and so overcoming those challenges has been the key – Andrew Lloyd
    - The one advantage of the property sector is that we always need somewhere to live and we always need the existence of property – Andrew Lloyd

    - Now that you made that investment, whether you're a law firm or you’re land registry or utilities businesses, you've had to think about how can I do things differently – Andrew Lloyd
    - Believe in your people, I think that's the one thing I've learned over the years is that money can come and go… but the people that you have around you, and what you will get in return from people and staff that believe in you in terms of leadership, far outweighs the short term losses or gains that you get financially – Andrew Lloyd

    Insights From This Episode
     
    (COVID) has put home at the centre of our lives, so the home is more important than ever before – Tushar Garg Once every buyer becomes a cash buyer, which is where we believe the world would go, at that point you won't necessarily win the home at a low price, but the system would become a lot more efficient – Tushar Garg And it's continuously putting people at the heart of it and taking the experience to the next level. That hypothesis, I think is becoming more and more true in these times – Tushar Garg Home buying has always been an essential human need, and I think it's becoming even more central to have a place that you can call your own. And it's more than just a place to work, it's a think it's a place that you feel that you belong, and I think that is becoming so core to everything – Tushar Garg is buying has always been just so daunting for people, because there has been no process that's been designed to simplify home buying – Tushar Garg

    Insights from this Episode
     
    When you're a landlord, you really have a responsibility and a deep personal relationship with the renter, because you are providing someone's housing. You're providing their access into a community – David Sullivan I think the whole ecosystem is really recognising now that a lot of the intersection between PropTech or RentTech, and FinTech is very related – David Sullivan I think landlords want to be innovative. And many of them are looking for ways to be innovative, but they need partners that are building these things - David Sullivan So it's about bringing technology to the partnership, and bringing an open mindset and ear towards where do they want the product to go – David Sullivan How do you adapt the way you work with a renter based on the dynamic events of the renters financial life? And so leases, payment structures, and the whole renter experience I think will become personalised over the next five to ten years – David Sullivan
