Statistics have shown that for every 7 out of 10 students, hostel hunting is a huge pain with over 1.6 million Nigerians getting admitted into the university every year; state and federal institutions can only provide accommodations for 8% of this students,which are even in poor conditions and as such over 70% of these students live off-campus. How do they get them? Horrible ways. That is the major issue Mypadi.ng is trying to address.
Founded by Joel Amawhe, myPadi.ng (formaly HostelsVila & Studacom.ng) is a #1 go-to platform geared towards making school stress-free starting with providing off-campus hostels and roommates for students and NYSC youth copers in Nigeria.
The platform provide zero-risk matching process providing critical information about available off-campus hostels including photographs, video, pricing, distance and others from verified landlords.
“Because we understand the pain of walking around and going through billboards, newspaper, and other unverified portals to search for off-campus hostels and roommates, myPadi.ng integrates the whole long process of searching, contacting owners, booking hostels and roommates into one safe & secured, free-to-use and hassle-free platform”.
The platform which started with just 5 schools is currently in 22 states, 47 schools and has 2 members of major management team, 2 software team members, 4 field reps in 4 regions of the country, communication and customer service, 162 campus ambassadors which are students.
Mypadi.ng is also among the startup currently on the Ventures Platform incubaton programme and hope to raise seed funding which will also provide it with the support they need to grow fast.
