Describe the company – the elevator pitch …
www.Daylui.com is a rental marketplace connecting people who have something to lease, with people who are looking for something to rent.
It can be anything a motorhome, boat, bicycle, GoPro camera, gaming console – anything that you don’t find yourself needing on a daily basis.
How are you different?
We understand the importance of design, and apply latest technologies to make best user experience. Also, we took best practices from well known marketplaces and applied it to our website. (Airbnb, Ebay, Amazon, etc)
We are one stop shop rental marketplace, where users are able to find more rental offers than on any other marketplace. They can hire cars, boats, motorhomes, drones, Cameras, Consoles, Virtual reality, tools and many more.
Also people and companies can lease all their equipment in one place, whether it’s a car, bicycle or a camera. It’s easier to use one website to find great rentals and lease your items.
Our deposit system offers additional security for customers willing to lease their items lowering the risks of damage and non-return.

Why will the company / product do well?
Nowadays people are renting more things than they did in the past and this trend continues to grow. People act smarter and understand that it’s not necessary to own many things as they can be easily hired. Therefore we believe that our platform Daylui.com can connect people and enable them easily share and hire anything they need, anywhere in the world.
Also we strongly believe that our product is bringing a lot of added value to people, since owners can off-set their ownership costs, by leasing their items to other people. Resources are going to be used more efficiently. This can become great opportunity to earn extra income, and disrupt equipment rental market like Airbnb did to hotel industry.
Where are you based?
We have company registered in UK and that’s our target market. Although we are currently working on a remote basis from Lithuania, Latvia & Russia.
