Overview

Yembo is a remote-first, Series A funded business headquartered in San Diego on a mission to bring trust and transparency to home service companies. Yembo’s AI uses smartphone videos to build an on-demand digital replica of each property that will immediately answer the questions – how many furniture items need to be moved, what is the square footage of the room, what type of material is the home built out of, etc. There are 100 million+ properties in the USA alone, requiring millions of inspections for all sorts of home services like moving, insurance underwriting, insurance claims handling, mortgage, flooring renovations, and we want Yembo to be the category-defining company that virtualizes inspections for these industries.
