LONDON, September 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
London's Smart Alternative to Hotels
Kippsy.com is a new collaborate accommodation online platform which offers visitors to London an alternative to hotels that can save guests up to 65% per night. With over 300 London properties currently listed on the site, Kippsy has identified a significant market gap for visitors who are increasingly opting for the flexibility of centrally located, self-contained apartments, instead of hotel rooms while staying in London.
The start-up company, which launches this month, has just completed an early stage round funding with Jenson Seed EIS and a group of high net worth individuals through investment advisors Mediaventura.
Phil Cooper, founder and CEO of Kippsy, explains, "Kippsy provides a gateway to a local London Lifestyle. My aim is to make Kippsy the market leading service for the short-stay apartment sector; encompassing economy to high-end properties whilst delivering a return on investment for landlords and owners of London properties."
Phil is an internet entrepreneur having built and sold two digital businesses, the last to Fox/Newscorp for an undisclosed eight-figure sum. He has also spent eight years investing in the London Property market.
