I was excited to have my longtime friends, Giorgi Chigogidze and Chris Steege with me on the podcast to discuss Purlin, their startup for personalizing the homebuying experience. They try to address the #1 problem for potential buyers - finding the actual home to buy, making that easier, more personalized and aided by AI.
We met nearly 20 years ago at UCLA Anderson, where we were not only in the same class, but same section (Go, Section B). It was amazing to now be talking about Purlin all these years later. Both of these guys have had very successful careers in finance and advertising, which we discussed, as well as how they came together around this opportunity. They’ve made great progress on Purlin, and are also navigating the startup journey and challenges as most startup founders do. I appreciated how honest and reflective they were on their relationship and personal growth through this process.
