Habi, a technology-driven real estate company based in Bogotà, Colombia, raised $5.5m in pre-seed funding.
The round was led by Tiger Global Management, Homebrew and Zigg with participation from Reshape Holdings, FJ Labs, and Supernode Ventures, among others.
The company intends to use the funds to launch in three key neighborhoods in the north of Bogotá and to expand to other countries in Latin America.
Co-founded by real estate industry expert, Brynne McNulty Rojas, and Sebastian Noguera, an entrepreneur and former technology executive of one of Colombia’s largest banks, Habi aims to simplify the home buying and selling process by leveraging its proprietary pricing algorithm and platform for buying. The company helps customers in the middle class buy and sell their homes.
