Hoizee founder Patrick Crompton learned first hand, while studying in Brazil, how difficult it can be to get settled in a new country and culture. Though he diligently tried to set things up from afar, his efforts proved futile, as arrangements fell through and he found himself without a place to live after his first week in the country.
Patrick continued to live and work abroad, at times, getting off an airplane and experiencing feeling lost and unsure where to go. It’s these experiences, as well as watching international students in the United States try to navigate their new surroundings, that inspired Patrick. He knew Hoizee could add value to the lives of a lot of people.
What in the world does Hoizee mean? We aren’t sure exactly, but we do know it’s been associated with lifting something or someone up with great enthusiasm. ‘HoizeeHo’ is an expression often used by Patrick Crompton’s father, the late Don Crompton, a caring man who spent his life helping and supporting others.
Hoizee embodies service, enthusiasm, hope and positivity. As such, Hoizee is dedicated to Don Crompton and his love for other cultures and people, as well as his commitment to serving others.
Hoizee is committed to providing a service that is seamless and stress-free.
