The story of LifeX

It was autumn of 2015 when we decided to move from San Francisco to Copenhagen. We were moving to start new jobs, a new life and just experiment with a new city. We thought to ourselves, how hard could it be?

Little did we know ;) How do we even start the process of finding a nice apartment in these busy cities? How do we convince a random landlord to trust us? Or how do we rent something from the other side of the globe and know that it’s not a scam? And most importantly, how do we make sure that we’ll be able to find a new social circle?

We were facing all these questions… And when we arrived in Copenhagen, we realised we are definitely not the only ones.  So in June 2017 we decided to rent out a big apartment, get the best design furniture and invite a few other people to live with us. “Just to try it out,” we thought with our classic product prototype mentality.

And that’s how the LifeX community was born. Now we are helping many more live in beautiful shared apartments with great people. And yes, LifeX is still our home too ;)

We believe that co-living is an answer to some of the biggest challenges of our time. It helps fight not only the housing crisis, and climate crisis, but also the growing intolerance and loneliness.
