Finding a safe and comfortable location to live is a major consideration for any young professional, particularly in a busy city like Ahmedabad. However, traversing traditional methods such as brokers and online portals can be difficult, expensive, and can lead to scams.

The Struggle of Finding Bachelor Accommodation in Ahmedabad

Imagine moving to Ahmedabad for a job, only to be bombarded with challenges in finding a suitable place to live. High broker fees, scams, and unsuitable living conditions can quickly turn the excitement of a new opportunity into a nightmare. This is exactly what Citynect was created to solve.

Citynect: Connecting Bachelors with the Perfect Place to Live

Citynect is an Ahmedabad-based startup that’s a beacon of hope for bachelors and working professionals seeking brokerage-free accommodation. They understand the unique needs of this demographic, who often fall between the cracks of existing solutions.

  • Focus on Bachelor Accommodation: Unlike other platforms that cater either to students (PGs and hostels) or working adults (established real estate sites), Citynect prioritizes the needs of bachelors. They offer a variety of options including shared flats, finding roommates, pre-occupied flats, working professional PGs, and private flats.
  • Direct Connection Between Tenants and Owners: Citynect cuts out the middleman, allowing tenants to connect directly with property owners. This saves on expensive brokerage fees and facilitates transparent communication between both parties.
  • Building a Safe Community: Citynect understands the importance of safety, especially for young women. They’ve built a trusted platform that prioritizes user safety.

A Sustainable Business Model: How Citynect Makes Money

Citynect uses a subscription-based strategy. Users must pay an upfront charge to use the platform’s services. The business also wants to offer additional products like online background verification and rent agreement services, strengthening its revenue stream. Citynect began tiny, with an initial investment of only Rs 20,000. They’ve developed organically, using resources like AWS credits and an in-house tech team to cut costs. This bootstrapping strategy has produced an amazing profit margin of more than 60%. The firm recently got an SSIP grant of Rs 1.3 lakh and is now trying to collect funding to fuel future expansion aspirations. Citynect has quickly established itself in Ahmedabad. They’ve assisted over 1,000 bachelors in finding acceptable housing and attracted over 250 premium members, resulting in pre-revenue of Rs 2.5 lakh.

Citynect’s Global Aspirations: Looking to the Future

Citynect’s vision extends beyond Ahmedabad. They aspire to become a global brand catering to the specific needs of bachelors and young professionals seeking accommodation. Their target markets include Bengaluru, Mumbai, and Hyderabad, with plans to expand internationally to cater to young professionals moving abroad for work or study.

  • Targeting New Markets: Bengaluru, Mumbai, Hyderabad, and Beyond Citynect recognizes the challenges of established players in these larger cities, particularly when it comes to onboarding property owners. However, they are confident that their unique approach and focus on user experience will win over both tenants and owners.
  • Embracing Innovation: Integrating AI Technology for a Personalized Experience Citynect is committed to integrating AI technology into their platform to personalize the user experience and offer real solutions to accommodation challenges. Their focus remains on developing features that directly address the needs of young professionals and make a positive impact on their lives.
