OneRoof 🏒

do you know your neighbors?

setting the scene

  • you come back to your apartment with ingredients to make your infamous triple chocolate cookies πŸͺ
  • you ride the elevator up with a few of your neighbors πŸ›—
    • not knowing anyone’s name, you politely nod your head and stand in silence while looking at the floor πŸ’€
  • you walk into your kitchen to start baking and realize you forgot to pick up eggs πŸ₯š
    • if only you knew your neighbors well enough to ask if they had any extra πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™‚οΈ
  • we hardly know the people living steps away from us; this week’s company provides a solution to connect you to others living under the same roof

in a sentence

OneRoof is a mobile platform that connects neighbors living in the same building 

  • connects: join chat rooms, plan and attend building events 
  • building: every building has a unique access code and personalized community features

bulleted version: similar to how your office building has a Slack with channels for teams and interest groups, OneRoof provides a platform to connect the entire apartment building πŸŒ‡

due diligence

what we like

  • 🀝 friendship seekers: in a post-COVID world, social media apps that help users meet new friends are trending
  • πŸ“ˆ positioned for growth: OneRoof has the potential to scale in urban environments where word of mouth spreads quickly through friends, buildings, and neighborhoods
  • ♻️ rethinking solo living: by helping apartment residents connect over common needs and interests, OneRoof creates opportunities to make living more communal and resourceful

potential risks

  • πŸ¦ΈπŸ½β€β™€οΈ self-regulating: OneRoof relies on super neighbors to onboard and engage tenants; how will the company ensure that apartment communities stay active on the platform?
  • πŸ‘£ big tech: what’s stopping well-funded social giants like Meta or Snap from flattening the competition and replicating these community features?
  • πŸ”Œ social disconnect: will age diversity in apartment buildings limit adoption in certain areas and impact user growth?
