Leko Homes

Early Stage Startup





Tagline

Leko is revolutionizing the housing experience.



Elevator Pitch

Single-family houses are stuck in the Stone Age because of 2 main problems: customization and user experience. It is really hard to industrialize something so unique, individual as homes. Regarding the non-user experience no comment... Thanks to breakthrough technologies Leko is now able industrialize fully connected custom homes . It is not new homes, it's a new Way of Life.

Product

Leko builds stunning bespoke smart green homes; everything at Leko is innovative, even the business model. Leko has developed its own ecosystem: an power unit connected to an app. Every Leko home is delivered with a guardian angel, the Leko Ranger. Not a plumber. A technician, called the Leko Ranger. Leko do not sale houses, we sale a carefree global solution.



Why we are ecofriendly

The philosophy of Leko is simple: designed sustainability and quality in every detail. Every Leko house is built with natural materials, good for health and good for the planet, as the timber frame structure. Timber is a fantastic natural material. As well as being recyclable and renewable it also captures carbon dioxide. Building with a timber frame not only has the advantage of being green and cool. It is above all a technological choice – choosing the best the market has to offer. Our wall, by contrast, behaves like a Gore-Tex membrane. It is a wall that can perspire, to deal intelligently with the transfer of humidity, while fulfilling its role of providing protection against water and air.

Customers

Annual taxable income above € 200k. Mainly executives, entrepreneurs, AB+. They do not buy a product because it is environmentally responsible, but because it is the best. And as this is the best, it is eco-friendly. They have a special taste for good and beautiful. They spend a large share of their income to travel. Epicurean at heart, they know how to receive and want to enjoy their homes with their children or their friends. They eat organic, but will occasionally at McDonalds, vote in the center, have an hybrid car, or ideally a Tesla, want to travel on a trip to Costa Rica and have a Master degree level. They know how to have fun, but with discretion and discernment. They are not demonstrative.
