About Heyanna

At HEYANNA, we reimagine coliving. We’re shifting the focus to the people and match your perfect Coliving Crew.

Our long-term goal is to improve the quality of life in coliving by eliminating everything that is annoying and unpleasant – first of all, by making the search transparent, especially on the level of finding roommates.

For this purpose we have designed an app that enables matching in the shortest possible time and convinces with its clean, appealing design and a playful user experience. Our intelligent matching algorithm is based on personality traits, such as Early Bird or Night Owl, personal interests and coliving preferences.

Our diverse core team consists of four people, the two founders Timo (Product Development) and Sebastian (Design, Business Development), and Chiara (Business Operations, Partner) and Filiz (Marketing, Communication). However, the team is supplemented by about ten additional supporters from a wide variety of areas. We strive to become tomorrow's coliving platform for graduates and young professionals who choose coliving out of conviction.
