MyRoomie furnishes experiences like outings, cricket, football, table tennis tournaments, movie nights, and welcome parties for students so that they feel connected and become part of the `MyRoomie community'
Attention to human factor is what gives MyRoomie an edge over others. Each of the campuses has a pet dog that is adopted. Both the dogs (Pearl and Milo) are vaccinated, healthy and are being trained under a mentor. "This is one such way of providing social and emotional support to our students, which help in their overall well being," he mentions.
MyRoomie has a flat organizational structure where the decision makers are available to all employees. The company has a strong work culture, backed by well defined Standard Operating Procedures, where employees are encouraged to take initiative and take decisions at the implementation level. It has periodic assessments and trainings to enhance the skill level of the employees.
Since inception, MyRoomie has witnessed a steady increase in its revenues. Dennis asserts, "This has mainly been due to our previous experience as entrepreneurs, our stringent operational procedures and focus on building a robust technology platform.."
"We are looking at raising the next round of capital and expanding our capacity to 10,000 beds in the next couple of years to cities across Chennai, Hyderabad, Coimbatore, Pune and Mysore. We want to establish a strong presence and brand in South India, before moving to rest of the cities in India," Arun concludes.
