This past summer, University of Wisconsin seniors Isaac Lee and Vinesh Janarthanan interned in Texas and California respectively. Both students found that it was quite difficult to find appropriately priced short-term housing for their time away from campus. They decided they wanted to come up with a more efficient and simpler way to sublease. Together, they developed “Crib.”
Crib is a marketplace that aims to ease the process of subleasing. The app assists students in finding subleases and offers a platform for tenants to sublease their own housing as well. Those looking for suitable housing are able to do so in just three clicks on the app. The application uses artificial intelligence to find subleases that will cater to every individual’s needs, according to Janarthanan and Lee.
