We are a real estate tech + services company based in Boston.
We are passionate about solving the issue of residential loneliness and increasing brand value for building owners and partners.
The #1 factor in a resident’s perception of value is the sense of community they find on a daily basis.
The second most important factor for a resident to renew their lease is their neighbors.
At least one third (1/3) of Boston residents
experience feelings of loneliness
“Generation Z (ages 18-22) and Millennials (ages 23-37) are lonelier and claim to be in worse health than older generations.”

We Power Community
Our Cobu app works together with our unique experiences that take place in your building and the local businesses with which we partner in your neighborhood. The app makes it easy to RSVP, to save experience details on your personal calendars, to share discounts (AKA: perks) for shops around your block, and connect to your community.
A Message from Ben, Cobu’s Founder
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! — Ben Pleat, Founder & CEO
