Daisy Ashworth & Jess Vesely, Mortgage Mates
Between 2019 and 2021 Daisy and Jess worked together to create, develop and implement their Minimum Viable Product. During this time, Mortgage Mates received positive news pieces, success in the startup space and commenced their connection to Mates across Australia. In early 2021, Jess made the difficult decision to step back from her active role in Mortgage Mates, taking time to work on personal goals and aspiration, whilst supporting the dream of co-ownership from behind the scenes.
2017 – now
Driven by Ideas, Passion, People and Housing.
Throughout her 15 years experience working within the legal, housing and welfare space Daisy began to identify a growing gap in the housing market, noting individuals were finding themselves without a long term place to call home.
Following her work in the housing space, Daisy saw that many individuals were being priced out of the housing market due to expensive rental properties, limited deposits and lower incomes.
It was because of her experience in housing, and her understanding that this lack of affordable home ownership has long term impacts on people, that she decided to do something about it. Using the ‘stranger’ economy to establish affordable housing, she developed the idea of connecting individuals together to enable them to co-own a home.
Let’s make something together.
