The Onset

The Vlage was founded in 2018 and is headquartered in Nairobi Kenya. We started our journey via the Sheltertech Hackathon in 2018 where we have grown into a startup that offers affordable,safe, decent coliving spaces for young professionals in Africa. Young people through our platform will be able to search, book and pay for decent and affordable housing through our platform, making the search for housing hassle free and convenient across Africa.

What you get

By staying in our spaces our young professionals can save upto 30% of their accommodation cost were they to stay in traditional housing models where they rent out a whole apartment or house.

Our business model The Vlage is a proptech company that partners with landlords, host roommates to provide access to private and shared living in African urban centers. We earn a commission from every successful booking of the properties listed on our platform.
