Another great day (or rather, night) for Flat-Club & UCL students to take home an award!

It seems like it was only yesterday that we were celebrating our win at the JC Young Entrepreneur's Challenge, and now a group of students that we worked with have been honored at the UCL Awards for Enterprise last Tuesday night. It was a fantastic ceremony worthy of the Oscars, and just a little bit unexpected, but a very welcome change from the usual Tuesday night.

The received award was for Best Impact for a Student Consultancy Project, for the project that we undertook with students from University College London.

The project in question was a consultancy concept that answered some key questions for Flat-Club...for example, will people host on our site who wouldn’t host elsewhere? The answer was a resounding yes. Twice the amount of private people would host on Flat-Club, where academic & company connections are utilized, than on similar sites who place less emphasis on networks where trust exists.

For more information on the project, our involvement, and the award-winning students who worked on it, UCL has graciously posted a video.

Nitzan Yudan was a standout candidate for this award because of both the impact our students from UCL had on Flat-Club, as well as the enthusiastic welcome he gave them and the experience he provided them.” said Director of UCL Advances Timothy Barnes.

Thank you to Charlotte Arlt, Nicklas Carler, Johannes Kunath, Edward Ling, and Matej Orlicky for working alongside Nitzan and the rest of the Flat-Club team on this now award-winning project. Congratulations!

It was a pleasure to work with the students at UCL, and we’re so proud that the effort that was put into the project was recognized by UCL.
