Meet the Real Estate Tech Entrepreneur: Igor Dzhebyan from andcards
In our latest real estate tech entrepreneur interview, we’re speaking with Igor Dzhebyan from andcards.
Who are you and what do you do?
Igor Dzhebyan, the CEO and Co-Founder of andcards — we provide technology that elevates a coworking brand.
What problem does your product/service solve?
Rising independent coworking networks strive to build strong brands. Mobile apps are an important touchpoint, often overlooked due to a lack of resources and know-how. andcards makes white-label mobile apps that reflect a coworking space’s brand, powers member engagement, and builds a unique online presence. Our software is used daily every day for meeting room bookings, membership benefit applications, and connecting to other members through a collaborative news feed.
What are you most excited about right now?
Scaling andcards workspace management technology around the world. Since our customers are mature coworking spaces that pay attention to their brand, the quality of their workplaces and interiors are simply jaw-dropping. It is really exciting to see how our customers adapt our technology to simplify management and improve the member experience. The emotions of coworking members make me feel proud of our work.
What’s next for you?
We just released andcards v4, allowing additional design customization to reflect the customer’s coworking brand. In 2020, we plan to focus on three key areas:
- Further perfect the user experience of our product, making it even more minimalist, simple, and intuitive.
- Enable even more customization, transcending a coworking space’s brand identity, so the app really feels like your own.
- Cooperating with our partners, from CRMs, access control, billing and payments, through to marketing, to offer coworking spaces the flexibility of using professional tools for their business.
What’s a cause you’re passionate about and why?
Education. In my opinion, it is the greatest achievement of humankind that gave us enlightenment, modern science and technology, advancing our understanding of the universe and ourselves. Education brought us out of an eternal loop of poverty and Medieval superstition. It made us believe in ourselves, cultivating the entrepreneurial spirit–while allowing more freedom to travel the world, work remotely (often at coworking spaces), and be who we want to be. The new way of education and work enables social lifts, especially in underprivileged communities, improving the quality of life for hundreds of millions of people.
