The round was led by Charles River Ventures, with participation from Collaborative Fund, NextView, Corigin and angel investors

The company intends to use the funds to expand the team, open new locations and further develop online platform, allowing members to manage their lease and connect with the global community.
Founded by Bruno Haid in 2015, Roam manages a distributed network of communal living spaces that allow travelers to sign one weekly lease to live all over the world. Currently, customers pay USD $500 per week for access to three locations around the world, including Ubud, Miami and Madrid. The company is now looking to expand, with new locations opening in Buenos Aires and London in 2016, adding to 8-10 locations by 2017.
