Our story takes us back over 3 years ago when the co-founders met in Singapore and became friends.
Both being Americans, we identified a serious problem in the world and embarked on a journey to fix it. That is to say, getting an overseas mortgage as a non-resident is extremely difficult, especially for U.S. property – the largest residential property market in the world and one of the most invested by foreigners.
In 2019, we raised Seed Funding from 2 Korean banks as well as well-known investors around the world to use technology to disrupt this space. Our Demo-Day video is our Youtube Channel under “Global Mortgage Group”.
