About us

Shepper is the UK’s first on-demand inspection service for consumers and businesses. We keep an eye on the things that are most important to you, for when you cannot be there to do it yourself. Founded by Carl August Ameln the major investor in both Streetcar (now Zipcar) and LOVESPACE, Shepper delivers peace of mind by providing visual inspections of objects anywhere in the UK. Co-founder and CEO Ben Prouty was part of both the early Streetcar and LOVESPACE teams helping to grow them to market leaders in their respective spaces. Fellow Co-founder and Head of Product & Marketing Jan Vanhoutte has a background designing, developing, and marketing products that customers love, working with the likes of Carlsberg, KPMG and Hilton. We want to make Shepper an extremely challenging, but enjoyable and fun place to work and getting the right people in at this early stage and building the right culture is essential.
