YES, LEMA is here. It started off as a question that turned into a thought which quickly turned into a passionate drive.
Our founder, Sam Gaw, pulled together a team of founders, co-founders, expert start-up individuals, and a few leading marketing people around the nation to start the conversation. We started out by thinking of 10 ideas in a speed round of potential start-ups. Over a 24 hour period, we quickly lifted two out and ran with them. Three weeks later we launched the first idea with major success and then followed it up with another a couple of weeks later. We knew that we had a great blend of people.
The next venture that we brought in during our BETA phase was a real estate predictive-analytical company, HomePlotter.com. Within a month, we pulled together a team to build out the database, trip-wires, marketing, and algorithm to predict who might be selling their house in Orange County, FL within 60 to 90 days. After a few tweaks, we found it to be 67% accurate within that 60 to 90 day period. The goal is 80% before launching it fully but we are using a team of real estate agents around Orlando to better build out the scripts to use and how to best approach someone when they get ready to sell their home.
We are quickly moving out of our own BETA phase and into full accelerator mode. Our first full company to be in the accelerator program will be announced in April 2018. This company has quickly pulled together a great team, an amazing roadmap, and the potential of being huge. We are proud to have them with us and we know that 2018 will be a great year for them!
