Darwin Homes, an Austin, Texas-based real estate technology startup, raised $15M in Series A funding.
The round was led by Canvas Ventures, with participation from Camber Creek and existing investors Khosla Ventures, Wave Capital, Pear Ventures, and Silicon Valley Bank, and angel investors Tony Xu (DoorDash), Ryan Graves (Uber), and Andrew Marks (TQ Ventures).
Co-founded by Ryan Broderick and Zachary Kinloch who were early executives at DoorDash, Darwin Homes incorporates new proprietary property management software that allows owners and managers to take control over and scale their portfolios across different markets nationwide, eliminating the inefficiencies that limit profits and expansion.
The company’s property management automation software, Origin, streamlines accounting, leasing, inspections, maintenance, and repairs, all across a single, integrated platform. When on-site issues arise, expert Darwin property managers are dispatched automatically, and all operations are tracked.
The company intends to use the funds to expand its service to new locations, beginning with Florida, Ohio, Tennessee, Colorado and North Carolina.
