What is this “Spacefy” that you speak of?

Hailing from the mean streets of Toronto’s fashion district, Spacefy is a marketplace for connecting the creative community with cool and unique spaces for their various projects. Think of them as creative space matchmakers, connecting hosts (who have the space) with creators (who need the space). Make sense?
For pros and above average Joes ...

You don’t need to be a creative professional to use Spacefy. Our online listing and booking system offers private and commercial rentals of creative spaces such as photo, video, music, fitness and dance studios to suit any type of project or class. Whether you’re a seasoned professional, a hobbyist, a novice or a student, Spacefy makes finding the right spot super easy and affordable.
Make money from space (not outer space)

Spacefy also helps facilitate the monetization of non-traditional commercial and private spaces. Whether it’s a sound studio in your basement, a photo studio in the den or an empty barn on a farm, Spacefy allows everyday people to make extra money renting out their unique space.

List it, Find it, Book it ...

Where can you Spacefy?

Our plan is to take over the world (moohahaha!), but we’re currently serving the Greater Toronto Area and we will be expanding into other markets in North America and around the globe over the course of the next year. If you’re not in the Toronto area, please still feel free to list your space or sign-up for our notification service which will let you know when we’ve launched in your area.

“The world is but a canvas to the imagination.” - Henry David Thoreau

Founder & CEO

Judeh Siwady

If the folks at Spacefy had to dress according to their roles in the company, Judeh would be rocking a captain’s hat, an eye patch, wooden leg, and a parrot uttering obscenities on his shoulder. As Founder and Lead on Product and Operations, Judeh makes sure that our Spacefy ship doesn’t hit any icebergs and safely navigates uncharted waters.

Having a robust background in business operations, Judeh has nearly a decade’s experience in product development and management, driving strong business results in new markets with new technologies. He was literally imported from Jordan to Canada to run North America’s first Arabic online television platform. Far from a “yes man”, he has been known to argue against the side he believes in just to make sure that whatever we’re doing, we’re doing it right. Being the most honest guy we know, Judeh’s modus operandi is doing things right for all stakeholders: space owners, space renters and employees too.

Moya Semaan

Moya can be described as a “glass is completely full” kinda guy. He’s the guy that Tony Robbins would call if he needed some positive motivation. Moya looks at everything the same way that a mother looks at their child; no matter what level of disarray things may find themselves in, he sees the good and figures out a way to make it butter (thats not a typo). Moya makes things smooth, savoury and delicious.

A true team player and backer, Moya has a rich background in marketing and business development having spent a decade with acclaimed international ad agencies FCB and TBWA. He then ran the direct sales, reseller and community partnership programs for multiple international IPTV platforms. Moya knows a thing or two about developing meaningful client relationships and keeping customers happy at all costs.

As a Co-founder and Customer Experience Lead, Moya puts feet to the street and makes sure that Spacefy has the coolest locations and spots for whatever creative niche you need, while providing unrivalled customer care every step of the way.

Alyas Ali

Al is the dude that can be found attached to the beard that works for Spacefy. In his previous life, Al was an electrical engineer in the telecom space, where he ensured entire area codes stayed online. To accommodate his creative alter ego, Al followed his true passion in media and marketing and ended up building brands and audience engagement at NeuLion, a leader in the Internet television space.

Always coming up with “interesting” (read: totally insane but everyone is too scared to tell him) ideas and concepts. His left and right brain hemispheres pack a one-two punch that produce an electrical storm of creativity that can spark totally new ways to look at our business.

Now, Al’s moonlighting involves DJ’ing, rocking out with his beard out with his band and snapping cityscapes with his BFF - a Nikon DSLR. Al is also responsible for getting the birthday cakes for the office, so if you’re nice to him, you might get a double crumble fudge ice cream cake on your name day! Yum.
