UK’s first shared living community secures £3.5m investment 

The UK’s first shared living members’ community, Lyvly, has secured £3.5m of investment from venture capital firm Mosaic Ventures and entrepreneur Greg Marsh. Lyvly will use the funding to expand its portfolio of London homes by targeting private and corporate landlords and institutional funds. Lyvly is a platform that provides high-quality shared homes to its members, who are aged 25 to 35, by working with landlords that provide furnished apartments for long-term rental. It allows members to share flats on 12- to 24-month tenancies.   The shared living community was founded by ex-Realstar executives Philip Laney and Dario Favoino,
