room.me, a Berlin, Germany and San Francisco, California-based roommate matching service, raised $1.1m in funding.
Backers included Axel Springer Plug and Play, Grazia Equity Partners and international business angels.
The company is using the funds to expand the service.
Led by Max Kersting, CEO & Co-Founder, room.me allows people to upload a room to room.me, answer a few standard questions and then have the opportunity to set a deal breaker. The matching algorithm then goes to work to find potential matches.
The service is launching in Silicon Valley.
