Budding Businesses Watch: Flatbook

We’re a small business, and we enjoy the challenges and opportunities that entreneurship affords us.  We also love reading about start-ups because they’re great inspiration for other small businesses.

Here’s an interesting one that came to our attention via The Globe & Mail, about a company called Flatbook.  Originating in Montreal, Flatbook sublets rental apartments for people (primarily students) who leave a city for the summer.  Flatbook does all the heavy lifting: they will come in and prep and photograph your place for listing on the short-term rental market.  They do lease places in Toronto, one of twenty-two international cities around North America and Europe.  So if you are or you know a student who is looking to sublet their rental unit for this summer, take a look at Flatbook.
