Searches set to be revolutionised as MyNestBox gathers momentum
MyNestBox is gathering momentum in its mission to revolutionise the searches process for conveyancers following a successful £1.3 million seed round.

South West Start Up Award Winners
We are proud to announce that MyNestBox has been named as the Construction & Building Services Startup at the South West Final of the StartUp Awards National Series

We have vivid imaginations here at MyNestBox. Despite this, however crazy our dreams might seem, we believe in them. We believe that there is no limit to what we can achieve. So all that being said, here’s what we are working to achieve:
A single property database to rule them all
“I just finished 3 days of desktop research for a plot of land, and then found out that Nick was sat next to me doing the exact same research on its neighbouring property” - funny, frustrating, or outright criminal??
This is a direct quote from a colleague of mine on my first day as the technical lead for a previous employer.
Why we've focussed on home buying
Buying a house is slow. Home buyers are usually kept in the dark for long periods and property transaction lawyers (AKA conveyancers) spend 60% of their time being chased up. After all that, 1/3 of purchases fall through. The buyer misses out and the conveyancer can’t claim their (full) fees.
Introducing our API
We’re very pleased to announce the initial availability of our API. This is the same API that powers MNB Assess, our site assessment reporting tool focused on new-build developments.
Open data for everyone
At MyNestBox we ingest a lot of data. We clean that data, process it, and make it fit for our purposes. But where that data comes from in the first place can often be a bit of a mystery.
Introducing Site Levels from MyNestBox
We’re thrilled to announce our latest addition to MNB Assess, Site Levels. This exciting new ‘deal breaker’ data source allows you to see the height and shape of a site more easily and much earlier in the assessment process.
MyNestBox launches new product
MyNestBox’s newest software, MNB Assess, has launched to enable new build developers, land agents, architects and investors to search for non-developable “deal breakers” and constraints on land.
Ying-Chih joins as Junior Software Engineer.
In the week that we announced the release of our first ever product, MNB Assess, we also appointed Ying-Chih as a Junior Software Engineer. WELCOME Ying-Chih!
MyNestBox Welcomes Liam Steadman, Data Engineer
More News! We have appointed Liam as a Data Engineer and our first full time technical employee. WELCOME Liam!
MyNestBox Welcomes a New Member to their Team
End of 2020
An activity that every member of our team goes through after an initial period of job familiarisation is to create a list of the 3-4 main jobs that they are entirely accountable for within the MyNestBox team. These jobs are unique to each person and provide a sense of purpose and accountability to each role. Everyone knows exactly what tasks need to end up in their “important” category on their daily to-do list. It is an empowering way to work.
Dr. Henry Crosby · Co-Founder & CEO
After many years of servicing the property industry as a data scientist and machine learning engineer, I found myself coming up with idea after idea after idea for new products and services tangentially related to my work. Unfortunately, these ideas were usually targeted at markets outside of the focus of my employer, so I was never able to bring them to fruition. I found myself getting itchier and itchier to implement them, so I made the leap - MyNestBox was born!
