  • We go all-in with you and hand you responsibility from the beginning to build the best PropTech Start-Up together
  • We make sure that you keep growing - through constant feedback, peer reviews, and exchanges with a focus on your development.
  • We do everything for our limehomies - with a focus on your physical wellbeing (Urban Sports Club), to your mental wellbeing (Nilo.health), or even staycations in one of our beautiful limehomes, and many more suite benefits. Join us and find out! ;)
