55factory has always been proud of its independent and self sufficient approach to everything.
The fact that we started up with an idea, a lap top, a 35mm camera and literally 2 creative friends, who were ready to collaborate with the entire world. We still work happily on that basis 5 years later.
So when we hear about VRUMI and their busyness model, we understood exactly how this is freeing thousands of people from their corporate existences.
Research shows that workers are ending the 9-to-5, with 45% of Millennials choosing workplace flexibility over pay. There has been an increase in freelancing and self-employment, with workers choosing to seek work with a greater purpose, considering “a job where I can make an impact” to be essential to their happiness.

Vrumi are helping pave the way for flexible working. This revolutionary new ‘sharing economy’ service that specialises in opening up homes as inspiring workspaces during the day. The service helps hosts to earn money from spaces that would have otherwise been idle, while guests save money on workspaces.
Opening up homes around London to inspire people to ‘Take a Leap’ in 2016 and practice their passion. Vrumi will be hosting a series of partnerships with small business owners and creatives, challenging Londoners to try that thing they’ve always wanted to do, whether it’s becoming a yoga teacher, a DJ, a photographer or an artist. We could even see some inspiration taken from 55factory and a whole media industry emerging for the comfort and collaboration of urban spaces.
