Former CEO of Trulia, Pete Flint has been dishing out investments, backing a number of companies, and supporting technology innovation where he can. Two such companies are Instashowing, a showing management startup that has seen an increase in popularity in recent months, and Lev Capital, an online financing platform for commercial real estate that utilizes data and automation to help property owners and investors source financing.
For Instashowing, Flint, along with real estate coach, Tom Ferry, partnered up with Howard Hanna Real Estate Services President Howard W. “Hoby” Hanna, IV, former Contractually CEO Zvi Band, former dotloop CEO Austin Allison, and Greg Schwartz, Founder and CEO of real estate technology startup Tomo to raise $1.5 million.
“Our funding and strategic support will allow Instashowing to rapidly expand its offerings and deepen its integrations with [multiple listing services] and brokers everywhere. The timing for this innovative solution couldn’t be better, and I am thrilled to be a part of Instashowing’s explosive success!”
When it comes to Lev Capital, through investors including brokerage JLL and a group of former executives from Trulia and LoopNet that includes Flint, the financing platform raised $10 million.
Leading this round as well, was Flint’s venture capital fund, NFX, with participation from JLL Spark and Canaan Partners, where Rich Boyle, a former CEO of LoopNet, is now a managing partner, as well as returning backers, Amino Ventures, and Ludlow Ventures.
