The Elevator 19: Ivo Silva, Co-founder of WeConnect

WeConnect was founded in 2022 by Clémentine Offner and Ivo Silva with the aim to provide an intergenerational housing solution for residents and students.

During the course of their studies, the Luxembourg-based startup came up with the business idea of “shared housing”, which on the one side, fights the issues of loneliness among luxembourgish senior citizens and on the other side the struggle of university students looking for an affordable place to stay in Luxembourg.
