About Canopy

At Canopy we’re building a Rental Marketplace to help millions of Renters achieve their financial goals and ensure they have an affordable roof over their heads.

Our core proposition is the RentPassport, akin to LinkedIn for renting, where tenants use Open Banking to build a digital rental profile and access our best of breed financial well-being products and services. These include Rent Tracking, to build credit history with Experian, and our own Deposit Insurance which replaces traditional cash deposits for residential rentals to put more money back in renters’ pockets where it belongs.

On the Agent side our B2B platform helps Landlords, Agents and Brokers reduce costs, earn additional revenue and boost efficiency driven by our free, real-time tenant referencing. Renters complete their reference in the time it takes to get an Uber to the property viewing, a win win for everyone.

Our investors include Experian and Direct Line Group.

We work remotely headquartered in London, with teams in Nottingham and Minsk. At this time we are looking to expand our team in the UK. Occasional travel to London will be necessary, conditions permitting.
