OpenUnit, a Toronto, Canada-based commerce platform for self-storage facilities, raised $1M in funding.
The round was led by Garage Capital, Advisors Fund, and Insite Property Group, angel investors including Chris Killi, Director of Canadian Self Storage Association, self-storage experts including Dave Demchuk, Jeremiah Jacks, and Peter Obradovich, Hubspot executives including Kipp Bodnar, Kieran Flanagan, and James Gilbert, and SquareFoot CEO and co-founder Jonathan Wasserstrum.
The company intends to use the funds to expand its staff and invest in product development over the next 6 months.
Led by Taylor Cooney, co-founder and CEO, OpenUnit provides self-storage owners with the tools they need to market and manage the day-to-day operations of their facilities and teams – whether they’re a single mom-and-pop site or a multi-facility corporation.
