Mobley is a NYC startup transforming home asset ownership through our rental platform. We started Mobley after continual frustration throwing away, storing or selling furniture for cents on the dollar every time we moved. As our generation continues to increase mobility, we strongly believe people shouldn't be forced to buy disposable, short-term furniture but instead flexibly furnish their home with beautiful high-quality items at a fraction of retail prices, for as long they want. We're strongly committed to reducing waste and building a beautiful home for our customers. Mobley is venture-backed and was selected as part of the inaugural cohort for the Harvard accelerator.
