Business apartment booking platform Homelike raises $14M
Homelike believes that the online solutions and product feature of furnished apartment are 10 to 15 years behind the hotels and hopes to narrow the gap.
Homelike, a marketplace for long-term business apartments, has raised $14 million in a round led by Spark Capital with participation from existing investors Cherry Ventures, Lürssen and Coparion.
Founded in 2015, Homelike is a booking platform for business travelers who want furnished apartments for 30 nights or more.
Homelike operates in 100 cities across Europe including London, Berlin, Munich, Vienna and Zurich, and the new funding will be used to expand its portfolio into additional international business travel destinations.
“Compared to the online solutions and product feature used by the hotel industry, the furnished apartment space is 10 to 15 years behind, and we are working hard to close this gap every day,” says Dustin Figge, CEO and co-founder of Homelike.
Homelike says it currently has 15,000 corporate clients ranging from small startups to large multinational corporations.
