Recently, Homee recently announced that it has received $15 million in a Series B funding round led by Forte Ventures. Liberty Mutual Strategic Ventures, Active Capital Partners, Florida Funders, Deepwork Capital and Engage were in participation. Homee will use the capital, which was also provided in part by strategic investors The Hartford, State Farm Ventures and Ferguson Ventures, bringing the total raised to $30 million, to launch into new markets and expand its services.
CEO Doug Schaedler said the funding will enable Homee to launch new markets and expand its services further throughout the U.S. “We launched Homee three years ago to change the way homeowners and landlords order home services. Our revolutionary on-demand model which ensures our customers the highest quality service at the most competitive price,” he added. “We look forward to working with all our new strategic partners and servicing their home improvement needs across the country.”
Homee’s network enables background-checked and vetted electricians, plumbers, HVAC technicians, and handymen to accept nearby repair or maintenance job requests for offices, homes, condos, and restaurants from their smartphones. A centralized operations team continually monitors provider ratings to ensure quality doesn’t suffer, and to lock in pricing no matter the time of day or location.
