The pandemic hit the hospitality industry particularly hard, but Casai isn’t letting that stop it from furthering along its international expansion plans. 

To further along its goal to reach international consumers, Mexican proptech startup, Casai, has set its sights on Brazil, launching operations in São Paulo and investing R$100 million into its Brazilian growth strategy. 

Helping it reach its goal of internationalization is its newly launched Getaways by Casai product. The feature offers a place for consumers to browse over 300 “intelligent spaces” across LATAM. To further support Casai’s goal of reaching a larger audience, the startup plans to grow the number of intelligent spaces to more than 500 by the end of 2021. 

Nico Barawid, CEO and Co-Founder of Casai, said in an interview:

“Casai was created as a technology company driven by a necessary change in the hospitality industry. Innovation has always been part of our DNA and, with the arrival of the pandemic, we seek to develop features that allow our guests to have the best experience possible, but with less risk.”

Casai was launched to bring a new service to the hospitality industry in LATAM, offering travelers a high-quality user experience that ends with them renting luxurious spaces equipped with high-end amenities and sophisticated AI-backed technology. Serving as another option outside of hotels and Airbnbs, Casai is for the modern professional traveler. 

Furthermore, the proptech startup has announced a partnership with WeWork to offer benefits and spaces for quests to work remotely while they travel. 

To help with these big plans, the company named Luiz Eduardo Mazetto as its new Company Manager for Brazil where he will lead a team specifically focused on uplifting Casai’s offerings in the Brazillian market. 

Mazetto said:

“We are concerned with sustainable tourism development designed to support the community. Local immersion is a very important concept for Casai, as we want our guests to feel at home wherever they are.

“São Paulo is one of the most important metropolises in Latin America. We want to offer a differentiated experience in accommodation, in line with the high standard of services that such a cosmopolitan city requires.”
