Who is Short Stay Citizens (SSC)?

Short Stay Citizens (SSC) is a scale-up and continuously growing, currently, there are 9 people working (hybrid) and soon to expand even more. SSC was founded by a group of four friends and is a response to the burgeoning demand for short-stay solutions. SSC is an independent booking platform for serviced apartments with a target audience of medium to high-level executives or affluent travellers. 

SSC recently launched a new label called Young Global Living (YGL). YGL is a new platform for community-based co-living spaces. While YGL has a similar business model to SSC, YGL’s target audience are millennials, gen z’s, affluent students, or digital nomads. Besides coliving spaces, YGL’s platform has other added values, for example, providing jobs (via an API), a community-based platform with messaging and more soon to come. A part of YGL’s concept was developed by students from the communication study at HRO during the iLabs project.
