About Ukio |

Ukio’s mission is to empower individuals to live where they want, when they want 🌎.

We do this by disrupting the traditional residential real estate market, providing fully furnished and artfully designed apartments for stays starting at one month. We remove all the hassle around finding a rental with no long-term contracts, moving/buying furniture, security deposits, broker fees, etc. giving choice and flexibility to allow people to live where and when they want. 💥

We are a Barcelona based startup with offices in Madrid, Lisbon, Berlin and Paris. Soon we will conquer some more cities across Europe 🚀

Backed by Europe's best Venture Capital firms, the next year will be a critical phase in our growth as we look to further build out our team and expand into multiple new markets 🔥 . We have successfully raised €27 million in our Series A investment round in 2022 that will help propel our growth throughout Western Europe. 🥇
