The story so far
In 2016, co-founder, Alex Depledge wanted to add a simple side return extension to her home but three months later, she found herself £2,500 light with nothing on paper. She couldn’t believe how clunky the experience was, and seeing an opportunity to change things, Alex enlisted Jules (who had previously co-founded a home-cleaner-booking business called hassle.com with Alex in 2013) to help come up with a solution. Resi brings architecture and home design into the 21st century, offering an online platform that opens up affordable, fast, high-quality architectural services for every UK home – they can even help with getting planning permission.
Harry Briggs, Managing Partner had known Alex for a few years and they coincidently bumped in to each other at a Downing Street reception which coincided with the launch of OMERS Ventures in Europe; after a few more conversations it became our first European Series-A investment. In just three years, Resi is now the number one residential architectural series in the UK.
