ES News: UnderTheDoormat – the win-win home rental business for homeowners and travellers
Russell Lynch, Evening Standard
… As DiversityInCare’s corporate partner, UnderTheDoormat offers homeowners the chance to donate some, or all, of the money earned from guests to the charity. In effect, the homeowner gets to use their vacant home to help someone who is homeless.
This charity partnership is an act of Corporate Responsibility that completely fits the company, offers personal and social benefits and makes everyone feel good about the transaction – even the guests, who, instead of putting money in a hotel chain’s pocket, knows that some of their rent could go to charity.
This is exactly the sort of partnership that both companies and charities should be aiming for, blending all the best elements that make up a CSR success story.
ES Entrepreneurs: Merilee Karr, founder of UnderTheDoormat, one of the new sharing economy start-ups in the capital, said: “There are over 600,000 homes in London that sit empty for four or more weeks each year, and over 100,000 homes are empty for 10 weeks or more.”
“There is a huge opportunity for homeowners to make some money from their most valuable asset while they are away, and companies like UnderTheDoormat enable to do this by taking care of everything.”
Joe Murphy, Evening Standard
… “Overall, industry growth in the UK has been positive, with a 1.6% Compound Annual Growth Rate over the last five years, suggesting increased economic confidence bolstered by a 4.6% increase in British start-ups in 2015*. Leading the growth list are small businesses operating in the sharing and rental economy such as UnderTheDoormat, a platform that allows homeowners to rent out their property, following in the footsteps of much larger, established US firms.
SEUK businesses like […] Under the Doormat, for example, are enabling users to create new sources of income through existing, and often unused assets.
