Only one proptech business, Huspy, with its headquarters in the UAE, featured in LinkedIn's list of the top startups for 2022.

Huspy, a UAE proptech start-up, has been named one of the top 10 startups in the UAE by the world's largest professional networking site, LinkedIn. Huspy, which was established in Dubai in 2020, has received recognition for its development trajectory over the last 12 months. This is based on increases in employment, engagement, job interest, and talent acquisition.

HUSPY’S HUGE GROWTH OVER THE PAST YEAR

The worldwide headcount at Huspy has increased by 500% in the past year. The company has been able to do so by positioning itself as an attractive employer. An employer for skilled professionals across the world who want to work at high-growth and innovative startups.  

Huspy has hired 300 people from more than 40 different countries during its two years of operations. They bring knowledge from renowned proptech companies like Loft and QuintoAndar as well as other well-known startups like Uber, SumUp, and DiDi.

In August, Huspy also acquired two mortgage brokerages – Finance Lab and Just Mortgages. This is one of many key components that has allowed Huspy to significantly scale up its operations and its array of expertise.

HUSPY’S STRONG COMPANY CULTURE

The company attributes its recent success to the substantial milestones they’ve been able to hit. But equally, they emphasize the significant importance of the strong and resonant internal company culture that they’ve established.

These cultural values are: “1) Empathy over ego; 2) We are owners; 3) Be fast and thoughtful; 4) Never settle; 5) Inspire Others.”
