Co founder and CEO, Bumbung.co.
Gadiy LimCo founder and CEO, Bumbung.co.
I think the real estate journey for buyers/tenants and sellers is broken, I'm an enthusiast when it comes to technology and I see a vision of where ML & AI can help solve some of the most difficult part of real estate.
85% of the sellers and agents time in many SEA cities are spent on manual administrative work for marketing and lead gen.
In the era of the iPhone Xs' of the world, I believe we shouldn't be doing the same things as how we've done them 20 years ago.
