Ben and Ginny first met at college some 20 years ago, when they were both studying at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, USA.
Ben brings 20+ years of real estate experience over 4 continents. He builds tools to help clients big and small make better real estate decisions. Ginny is passionate about building products and creating new businesses.
Table talk at dinner somehow or other, will revolve around tech – how to make things work better for businesses. Stuck in traffic one fateful day and after much brainstorming, it was clear to both that they could make something really unique and useful.
Together, they created GorillaSpace. They are just getting started.
What’s with the gorilla?
We think we see things as they actually are, but in fact we miss out a lot, even missing the big gorilla in the room. This is especially true when we look for work space. We think we only want a particular type of space. Yet we miss out all other available options that could solve our needs.
GorillaSpace is the platform that shows all available options. We provide tools and resources to help users make better decisions, and space owners to manage their spaces.
Our values are our touchstone guiding us at every step and in every decision we make for GorillaSpace and in our personal lives. Our values link us together in the way that we work with one another. They keep us aligned as we strive towards connected goals.
