BOrn of the start up's
Closer began with the meeting of a socially conscious group who all wanted to do something about the housing unaffordability crisis we are facing in New Zealand. Being entrepreneurs and working as a lean startup meant we had to think differently about the way we do things. The biggest problem with New Zealand's housing market is the lack of innovation and motivation to change from the status quo.
So what if we did think differently and did look at housing not as a single element, like building a house, but more at the whole picture of housing, the financial, the social, the societal impact it has and provided homes and communities that people could thrive in? And make them affordable!
