Our Mission

At Bed|n|Build, our passion is to encourage young professionals within our community to network and take full advantage of our members diverse skills and backgrounds, while providing them with a flexible and conducive co-living environment.

How Bed|n|Build Started

 

BednBuild started when founder Oliver Hanisch co-founded a startup accelerator, which provided international startups with the guidance and infrastructure to expand to Silicon Valley. Oliver repeatedly observed members bringing luggage to the office, or asking Oliver to sleep in the office for a couple of nights, because they were between accommodations, uncomfortable, and tired of cheap motels.

Realizing the problem and to help maintain the focus of the individuals in his startup community, Oliver decided to furnished an apartment next to the office and sublet it to the startups. Word spread fast and countless entrepeneurs inquired with Oliver whether he had any available space – until he decided to rent a second apartment. After continuous demand for more rooms, Oliver realized that there was a need for mid-term housing, and a rewarding aspect to connecting interesting individuals, while providing them with a safe and homy environment – conducive to their work performance.
