Silicon Valley's high tech giants Dropbox and Uber have found Spotahome promising, having invested in the Spanish medium and long-term stay housing rental platform.
The founders of Dropbox and Uber, Drew Houston and Travis Kalanick, as well as the co-founder of Yelp, Jeremy Stoppelman, join as new investors coming from "the Mecca" of entrepreneurship par excellence, reinforcing the support made by the American fund Kleiner Perkins.
It should be noted that this is the first time that Houston, Kalanick, and Stoppleman have decided to bet on a Spanish company. Other prominent entrepreneurs from the European scene have also joined the team of investors in the firm. Notable names include Carsten Thoma, co-founder of SAP Hybris software; and Naren Shaam, founder of GoEuro, both companies of German origin.
Spotahome has recently raised $ 40 million in a round of financing, led by investment fund Kleiner Perkins. Currently, the PropTech Spotahome manages a portfolio of 50,000 properties spread across 17 countries and 33 cities in Europe and the Middle East.
