Start2Rent version 1.0
A collaboration project with UKAA (the organisation for the UK Build to Rent sector, to find out the better living conditions is their goal.)
With the reintroduce of PSW visa, there will be a large number of graduates who will need to rent a house after graduation. After we researched the composition of the current BTR sector households. This group is currently missing. We use this as a starting point and opportunity to think about how to introduce BTR to this group by helping them land in a role in the UK for now and become long-term loyal users in the future.

3.how many tenants are using the platform now and showing their insights and experiences
To recap what was shown on the previous research, this timeline looks at the transition period for graduates in general. It begins with the initial period of chaos before graduation to the point after graduation where they finally settle down in the UK. We found from a previous survey that their first accommodation after leaving student halls leaves a big impression on them.
To capitalise on that, STR aims to reach students before their graduation, so they are more likely to become loyal and long-term tenants.
In the grand scheme of things, STR buildS an interworking bridge for the various stakeholders in the world of graduates looking to take their next big step.
We thought about how we could better connect graduates with BTR developers and eliminate common trust issues between tenants and landlords. At the same time, we thought about how our service could enable fresh graduates to network with existing BTR tenants and find suitable accommodation with peace of mind.
As for STR’s future,We want to think about how we could involve more stakeholders in our service to make it more sustainable
