Read the story behind Reposit and meet the team
In 2014, Jude moved to London from Ballymena, Northern Ireland. On arrival, he was shocked by the high upfront costs to rent a property. He got the money together, but had very little left. It was frustrating and painful.
He realised it couldn't just be him with this problem... then he had a lightbulb moment: what if there was a way to cut out the financial pressure for tenants but also give landlords and letting agents the security they need?
He enlisted the help of master builder Brendan, a former engineer at the Home Office. They went for a Guinness (naturally) and put together the Reposit business plan to make renting fairer.

Former cyber-security engineer for the Home Office, Brendan is a master at building secure online platforms. He started his first award-winning business while still at university and has been honing his craft ever since. He enjoys learning about innovative technologies as well as watching live music.
