We’ve created homeis because we know first hand how deep the experience of being foreign born is. When you ask us what home is, the answer would probably be “It’s complicated”. We have the country we moved to and call home, and then we have our culture, the country we come from, which we call home as well. And both are a big part of our identity, of who we are.
homeis was created to help people like us, who belong here and there, and feel that the Internet is underserving them. We’ve witnessed how difficult it is for local immigrant communities to digitally connect, share their culture, their local knowledge, and unique context. We saw how important these communities are in one’s life, how supportive they can be, and how effective their common wisdom can be to its members.
Our mission is to build a better Internet for immigrants. homies gives foreign born communities a dedicated and comprehensive product. A product for people who want to find their wings, without losing their roots.
The company was founded in Feb 2017 in NYC and Tel Aviv. We’ve launched our first community in Jan 2018, and are planning to expand globally in the near future. Like most foreign born people, we are BIG dreamers. Join us!
