Zumper, a San Francisco, CA-based new apartment rental platform, recently raised $1m in seed funding.
Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers (KPCB);
New Enterprise Associates;
The Experiment Fund; and
the DeWilde family trust.
The company intends to use the funding for expansion, engineering team building and product development.
Led by Anthemos Georgiades, CEO, and Taylor Glass-Moore, COO, Zumper makes it easy for tenants to discover and lease apartments by leveraging direct data feeds and partnerships with landlords, brokers and property managers. Launched in public beta at TechCrunch Disrupt earlier this month, the service currently operates in New York and San Francisco with plans to broaden reach to three more cities during the next year.
