Alex Assal is the CEO and Co-founder of Whoomies, a flat-sharing community in France with the goal of giving people better access to housing and creating better living situations. Alex graduated fairly recently from the IÉSEG Business School in Paris, and very soon after founded Whoomies.
Based on his experience of trying to find roommates in New York and Singapore, and the similar experiences of his co-founder, Lauren, they saw a gap in the market to streamline the experience. Instead of just offering the possibility to find apartments on a real estate platform, Whoomies offers the possibility to find people from all around the world who match your interests. You take a survey to give your interests, and the app will match you up with roommates who are the right fit for you.
