The Local Bigwig Mission
We are building LocalBigwig.com - a booking platform for furnished monthly rentals and extended stay hotels.
Local Bigwig is a booking platform for furnished monthly rentals and extended stay hotels.
We have aggregated corporate housing and extended-stay providers on one platform, so you can compare all of the options on one website and book it online.
We were tired of hearing horror stories about friends being scammed when finding an extended-stay furnished apartment in New York City. We wanted to do something about it, and we strongly feel that our team has what it takes to make this process as easy, transparent and fair as possible.
Local Bigwig Inc. is headquartered in SoHo, Manhattan. We are proud to be part of the NYU-Poly Business Development Program which is jointly supported by Mayor Michael Bloomberg's NYC Economic Development Corporation, the Real Estate Division of Trinity Church, and the Polytechnic Institute of New York University.
Our team is comprised of very driven, bright, and creative team members who are leveraging their passions for web-enabled innovations and furnished real estate rentals.
Life at Local Bigwig
We are part of the NYU-Poly Varick Incubator in Soho (Varick and Spring). We are on a floor with ~30 other startups that's just cranking all day/night to continue building product and pursuing the end goal.
Our floor is open layout and everyone's pretty personal and approachable. We (and you when you're here) will definitely learn a lot and be inspired by the other innovators in our incubator.
