Imagine a world where real estate becomes hassle-free for tenants! Where everyone who does not believe in government pension systems has a realistic chance to build a retirement income.

The first hassle free marketplace for landlords and tenants to find and rent flats.

Low pension forecasts drive the global demand for real estate with people aiming to build a stable source of income by buying flats to let. Land-lording, however, is time-consuming and effort-intensive.Finding an affordable apartment feels nearly impossible in more and more European cities. And what sounds like a great savings plan for the future turns out to be extremely cumbersome and leads to weak returns.

Kiko is creating the future of landlording by making it easy, facilitating the search of tenants, and managing rent collections. Decreasing void periods, guaranteeing payment on time, and better protection against property damages makes "buy to let" investments a much more reliable source of long-term savings.

After facing challenge over challenge during his tenancies, Valentin Scholz saw an opportunity to disrupt the current long-term rental market. He was included in the Forbes List of 30 Under 30 in 2018 when he was Head of product growth at Revolut, one of Europe’s few unicorns. Together with his co-founder Tony Popov and their team they have the technological expertise to scale Kiko to the number one service provider for landlords and tenants.

In 2021, Kiko launched their event series Tenant Satisfaction Summit, where forward thinking landlords, property managers and operators meet to discuss the next decade of the residential housing industry. From green cities to a better standard of living for tenants everywhere, Kiko is at the forefront of this movement.
