Our Story

It was 2015. Our founders Anthony and Kelvin were Airbnb hosts experiencing a steady take up rate for their rental apartments. But making multiple trips to handover keys to different guests was time-consuming and a hassle.

“Is there a way to do this without physical keys?” they asked.

With that vision, iglooco was founded.

Our Vision

To be a leading smart access solutions company that empowers a sustainable digital economy of the future.

Our Mission

By innovating and co-creating solutions with our communities, making an impact in everyday lives with fuss-free and delightful sharing experiences

The management team

Anthony Chow

Co-Founder | Chief Executive Officer

As an Airbnb host, Anthony faced the frustrations of the inconvenience of physical key exchanges, especially when guests wanted to check in at odd hours. As such, he wanted to enhance the experience of both hosts and guests and therefore set out to eliminate such problems. Together with his partners, he founded igloohome, with a simple vision to create a world without keys.

Anthony loves to tinker with technology and is a dreamer of a connected world. He relishes the occasional data science problem, and can be found enjoying long evening runs along the beaches in Singapore.

Anthony has a Masters from Stanford University specialising in big data, and a First Class Honours from Imperial College in Electrical and Electronics Engineering.

Kelvin Ho

Co-Founder | Chief Technology Officer

With over 15 years of experience in software development, Kelvin spearheads all engineering aspects of the business with an innovative tech approach, keeping the company technologically sustainable while maintaining its competitive edge.

In 2015, Kelvin co-founded igloohome with Anthony. They wanted to offer short term vacation rental hosts a new way to manage their guests that was convenient, safe and cost-effective to bring the joy back into welcoming guests.

Kelvin was pivotal in the creation of igloohome's unique proprietary algoPIN™ technology. It enables the locks to be highly secure while being able to operate remotely without the need for WiFi connectivity unlike other existing products in the market.

Prior to this, Kelvin was Chief Technology Officer of HungryGoWhere, a restaurant review and ratings app that was successfully acquired by Singtel in 2012.

Kelvin graduated from the National University of Singapore with a Masters with Honours in engineering and a Distinction certificate in intellectual property law.
