Homee, a Tampa, FL-based on-demand home services platform, closed a $15m Series B financing.
The round was led by Forte Ventures with participation from Liberty Mutual Strategic Ventures, new strategic investors The Hartford, State Farm Ventures, and Ferguson Ventures, as well as existing investors Activate Capital Partners, Florida Funders, Deepwork Capital, and Engage. In conjunction with the funding, Tom Hawkins, Managing Partner of Forte Ventures, will be joining the Homee Board of Directors.
The company intends to use the funds to launch new markets and further expand its growing service provider network throughout the United States.
Led by co-founder and CEO Doug Schaedler, Homee provides an on-demand home services platform for homeowners and property managers to access to thousands of skilled service providers.
Homee’s on-demand home service is available for any type of property, from homes and condos to offices and restaurants.
Using GPS-enabled smartphone technology, service providers on the network accept new job requests under a minute on average and arrive at the job location for repairs, improvements, or maintenance in an average of 30 minutes or less. Every service provider on the network is background-checked and screened by the company’s operations team and is continually monitored by the app’s provider rating system.
the Company counts some of the largest national single-family and multi-family portfolio companies as its clients.
