A clean slate. A fresh start. That’s what moving should be all about. Leaving the past, with all the good and bad memories, learning experiences and regrets behind. Instead looking forward, to a new opportunity for growth and development. The last thing you want is to have that new beginning tainted. Today, rental deposits have that effect on many movers and can be anything from a headache to a financially detrimental component. Removing the deposit isn’t an option, as the landlord would be left unprotected against nonpayments and property damage. To add to it all, the cumulative amount of these deposits make up billions in capital that’s simply left to collect dust in a bank account.
This is the problem we at Ebie saw. We quickly realized that the answer to this problem wasn’t to adapt the deposit, as its design makes it very resistant to improvement. The answer is to replace it altogether, with a solution that has always made sense.
We want to simplify renting for both renters and landlords without compromising security. We reach our goal through innovation, dependability and smoothness, laying the foundation for the future of renting.
We contribute to the sustainable development of cities and communities by solving a problem more efficiently.
By re-thinking current renting practices, our solution contributes to targets 8.1, 8.2 and 11.6 of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
We offer an affordable and convenient alternative to rental deposits, lowering the threshold to desired locations for small enterprises and start-ups that lack the financial muscles to pay large deposits.
Billions are locked up in cash deposits and bank guarantees, gathering dust. By giving landlords the same protection in a more capital-efficient way, we unlock cash that can give back to society through increased investments and innovation.
By lowering the barriers to the rental market – thereby increasing the tenant demand – we minimize market friction from unnecessary property vacancies. Through reduced vacancies we contribute towards “zero waste” cities.
We are an engaged team that strives to maximize benefits for all our stakeholders. What drives us is the vision of providing a better way of renting and making each day simpler. If Ebie sound like an interesting place to work or a promising business partner please reach out at contact(at)ebie.se.
