Our Founder’s Story
“Cobu was the culmination of two eureka moments: one professional and one personal. On the professional side, I observed just how much pain apartment building owners had with competition in the market; retaining residents and being the best usually came with million dollar renovations, which often did not contribute to the bottom line. On the personal side, I saw just how painful it was for my own mother to not have a community when she moved to the city. Her apartment complex had the community spaces, and yet she may as well have lived in a shopping mall. The entire experience was impersonal, and frankly very isolating for her.
Cobu was born from the mission to help my mom -- and all city dwellers -- truly belong in the places they call home. Finding a way to make it sustainable by bringing value to both residents and apartment building owners was the true eureka moment!”
