Paul Burke​, CEO

RentHoop is a new mobile app, available on iOS and Android phones, to find an awesome roommate. RentHoop shows you mutual friends, interests and the "dealbreakers" of other students at Santa Monica College and in West LA looking for a roommate.

​RentHoop works whether you have a room you need to fill or need to find a roommate before you look for an apartment. It's as easy as logging in with Facebook and filling out a few questions before you can start swiping through potential roommates. Each person will list their budget, when they need a roommate by, work history and education. RentHoop is available in greater Los Angeles.
