Newly launched property discovery platform, Crowdhaus, has secured 65% of pre-seed funding, led by SFC Capital, who have committed £162,500 to support the business’s growth ambitions.
In total, Crowdhaus have secured just under £200,000 in the pre-seed funding round.
Crowdhaus is a property discovery app, which allows users across London to find homes to buy and rent with a swipe-based user interface. Crowdhaus also enables social property searching, including the ability to create ‘groups’ with fellow household members to privately discuss, feedback, and rank relevant properties – replacing the need to manage inconvenient WhatsApp links and disjointed chats.
Their core mission is to change the way people interact with property, whether that be for those looking to rent, buy, or simply ‘dream search’ – a pastime that is becoming increasingly recognised as a national hobby. In fact, 27 million adults ‘dream search’ at least once a week, with 1 in 10 doing it every day.
Conan Osborne, Co-founder of Crowdhaus, said: “We are really excited to join the SFC Capital portfolio. With an amazing team building the product in house, it’s such a boost to gain the support from one of the most recognisable names in the early-stage VC space. We are looking forward to combining our ambitions with their start-up expertise to take the business to the next level. Our vision is to become the go-to property discovery platform for a digitally native audience.”
