Our Q&A series is an opportunity for our UK team to discuss all things PropTech, Start-ups, and Career with different founders from across the region. Each week we will ask PropTech innovators burning questions and quiz them about their product, we hope you find it insightful and enjoy getting to know the founders as much as we have.
This week we have been in touch with Eddie Goldsmith, Co-Founder of YouConvey.
With YouConvey you’re more involved in the conveyancing process, reducing the time and stress of moving home.
Having been a residential solicitor in the UK for many years I have seen at first hand the poor customer journey of home movers and I thought I was well placed to try to do something about it.
As the Founder of YouConvey I have been responsible for taking my vision from concept to launch . My every day roles goes across the whole of the Company – from Business Development through to speaking to Customers about their live transactions.
No one I have ever spoken to has “enjoyed “ the conveyancing experience – whilst the UK Government is unlikely to review the antiquated conveyancing process any time soon I could see how to engage customers in the process, reduce anxiety and improve their overall experience.
Any new product or proposition – especially when involving the largest financial transaction of peoples lives needs to convince and reassure the market and customers that it is safe and customers are protected legally – there is also the incumbent conveyancing industry which is not known for its prop savvy culture!
Having introduced a new and unique conveyancing service we are hoping to reach 5 % of the market in the next 3 years – this would make us the biggest conveyancing company in the UK.
Next year is all about growing our business over the next 12 months in terms of customer and our proposition.
Smart automation, block chain and AI automation is going to become more and more important in the conveyancing industry.
Build something that someone wants.
We are fortunate to be funded by wearenova who provide us with both resources and cash – without them there would be no YouConvey.
