By students,

for students.

There are two co-founders at MyPlace - Abram Watson and Colton Hibbert.

Both co-founders had trouble trying to find the right place to live--especially during college. With hidden contract fees, inaccurate website photos, and unresponsive management, we felt like there was a lot we didn’t know about our apartments until we actually started living in them. During the Startup Bootcamp class at Brigham Young University, we were placed in a group together and thought, "Why isn't there a website where we can find transparent information about the complexes we are renting at--like a Rate My Professors website but for apartments?" Thus, Rate My Place was born (since renamed My Place). 

The original intent was to complete the two-week crash course class using this idea and then forget about it. We had such good validation during those two weeks, however, that we figured we should do this thing for real!
