About Mekonen

Having worked in a start-up company as my first job before I even knew the term ‘start-up’ existed. I have experienced many escapades on my own and along-side others. This lead to finding a model that worked in property investing in 2006 which allowed a certain level of lifestyle in my 20s.

Always believing there was more to life and passion for all things Asia, I then jumped on a plane to Hong Kong in 2011. Before long I was fortunate to partner with an old friend and set up an eCommerce company, from there we built a subscription snack delivery company with 5000 customers and luxury handbag brand. Every aspect of each business from concept to customer service was developed and managed in-house.

Seeing an opportunity within the room rental and studio living sector I relocated to the UK in late 2015. Joining the ROOMS franchise has given me the chance to execute on the opportunity.

If I won the lottery

Enjoy the moment, and then reinvest the rest into evergreen investments and a castle close to Naples.

Thinking about the bigger picture, mini days out and enjoying lovely homemade Italian cuisine (I chop the peppers, very well).
