Off-Campus housing search

Upgrading the way college students find and lease local rentals through a transactional platform with 3D tours, digital signature, and online payment.


LoftSmart has disrupted the student housing space becoming the marketplace trusted by both student renters and property managers. We joined the project in the early days, launched the first prototype, and evolved the product though numerous milestones.

In 2016 we met two young entrepreneurs participating in AngelPad’s accelerator program, Sam Bernstein and Sundeep Kumar, who were developing an ambitious startup aimed at radically changing the way American college students lease apartments: LoftSmart.

They set up an exhaustive business plan; however, not having an internal technical team jeopardized everything they had achieved up to that point. We joined them as their design and development team, crafted a flexible platform that offered different configuration variables, and developed such an ideal product that investors began to emerge.

From initial idea to Series A within 2 years  🚀

This is how we helped LoftSmart become a desirable digital product for both investors and the public.

“Z1 is an incredible group of individuals with so much talent, and the work they produce meets the highest quality standards. They are communicative, and dedicated to the work they do”.
