Co-Founder, Mortgage Mates

 Jess Vesely

Having worked in the community development sector for the past 5 years, Jess has seen the negative impact of homelessness, unstable housing and reduced social connection on the wellbeing of individuals. This, alongside the personal experience of trying to enter the property market in Melbourne, sparked a interest to explore innovative solutions to the housing crisis. With a creative mindset and a drive to create deep positive social impact, Jess has worked to see the idea of Mortgage Mates come to life. She is passionate in the belief that everyone should have the opportunity to own their own home and believes that through jumping on board the growing sharing culture in society, we can address the housing affordability crisis through co-ownership and shared spaces.
