USA Roomies, a unique online tool to find and match roommates, launched a crowdfunding campaign at Indiegogo. The service is available to individuals and groups.
USA Roomies (http://www.usaroomies.com/), a website devoted to pairing people with like-minded co-inhabitants in order to remove some of the difficulty that can go into finding living arrangements with others, has recently deployed its operations in Austin, Texas, as well as, created a crowdfunding campaign in Indiegogo to raise funds for extending its service to more USA cities and internationally.
USA Roomies is a simple to use web portal that requires a short registration process as well as the creation of a personal roommate profile in order to interact with other members. New users are guided through the steps of managing their roomie profile and are then shown how to find a roommate by using the site's various features. All postings are then sorted and presented to visitors according to their geographic location or if they are in a private group, the room created by a group leader. Just the members in this approved group will see each other's profile. This helps alleviate apprehensiveness related to meeting new people online and also provides an additional element of safety. In fact, the company has a stated goal of continuing to develop new methods for implementing a safe-browsing environment for all visitors.
The website tool is for any country to use, including a group leader that needs to set up an event in a different country than the United States and uses the service to help attendees to obtain roommates. College students in the USA can chat all summer long with prospective international students coming to the United States if they would like to room with as well. In this manner, college campuses and student properties can create a private event for their tenants or students to choose their housemates. Also, conference owners or leaders can set up a private group for overnight stays for their attendees to help them to choose roommates.
