MeetElise is a rapidly growing tech company based in New York City dedicated to modernizing apartment leasing and operations by using artificial intelligence to create an automated and self-service experience.
In 2017, founders Minna Song (MIT) and Tony Stoyanov (University of Cambridge) decided to use their experience in software engineering and machine learning to address the many operational challenges of housing, one of humanity’s most fundamental needs.
After successfully launching the first version of their AI leasing assistant platform with two of the largest owners of multifamily apartments in the US, the company has experienced unprecedented growth and is widely accepted as the industry leader in artificial intelligence.
Access to housing that is affordable isn’t just a problem – it’s a global crisis. An estimated seven million reasonably-priced and available rental homes are needed in just the US alone, and no amount of government spending or policy have proven to be effective solutions.
We’re using machine learning to address the underlying cause preventing significant advancements in rental housing: operational costs. By automating the leasing and management of apartment homes, we’re creating a new, low-cost operating model that allows for the development of new housing at scale.
Our team is building the future we want to live in. A future where housing is economical, powered by technology, and accessible to all.
