Berlin-based proptech startup Zenhomes is a digital platform for property and tenant management. Founded in 2016, the startup has raised €13 million in a Series A funding round from new and existing investors, bringing the total raised by the startup to €19 million.
The vision of Zenhomes is to create an ecosystem of connected, digital platforms bringing together landlords, tenants, and service providers such as craftsmen or real estate agents. Zenhome’s core brand, Vermietet.de, is the only platform in Germany that already provides private landlords and property managers with holistic digital services for property management, such as rental management, asset management or building maintenance. Users benefit from a seamless experience that allows them to increase transparency and reduce time-consuming, repetitive tasks, and financial losses due to mismanagement.
“The real estate market is changing. Investors are increasingly young players with modern assets,” said Jannes Fischer, CEO and founder of Zenhomes. “Our core brand Vermietet.de aims at this target group and offers the perfect starting point to position Zenhomes as holistic partner for all those involved in the real estate ecosystem. Our goal is to make Vermietet.de the leading aggregator of housing in Germany within 2020.”
“The real estate industry has a lot of catching up to do, especially in the segment of private customers,” said Jürgen Fenk, CEO of SIGNA Innovations and member of the Executive Board of the SIGNA Group. “Zenhomes has taken up this challenge. With its holistic approach, the company takes a lead position in the digitalization of an entire industry. We are investing in the product and the clear vision: Together, we are creating the first comprehensive digital platform for all parties in the real estate industry.”
“Zenhomes is a great fit with the EWE strategy of bundling the energy and housing industry on one platform,” said Dr. Urban Keussen, EWE’s CTO. “We have been convinced by the strong, organic growth and EWE shares the vision to establish Zenhomes as the leading end-to-end proptech platform in the market.”
“The innovative power of the Zenhomes business model has convinced us. The cooperation of Zenhomes and Momeni Digital Ventures is an excellent example of knowledge transfer between startups and established companies,” said Juana M. Sacristán, managing director of MOMENI Digital Ventures. “In this way, created synergies provide sustainable, positive influence on the entire real estate industry.”
