SAN FRANCISCO (PRWEB) February 06, 2019
Today, 2nd Address, the leading marketplace for professional long-term rentals, has announced a Series C round at $10 million. The round is led by GV with participation from Foundation Capital, Amicus Capital, Pierre Lamond, and others. This round of funding follows a pivot towards creating a new experience for guests and hosts as well as an expansion into new markets. 2nd Address currently offers over 3,200 listings in six major U.S. cities: Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, the San Francisco Bay Area, and Washington, D.C.
“Our mission is to help business travelers find quality long-term stays that feel like home,” said 2nd Address CEO, Chung-Man Tam. “Whether on long-term projects, opening new offices, or relocating to a new city, we bring business travelers across all industries a new kind of experience - being in a comfortable home in a welcoming neighborhood vs. a sterile corporate housing option far from work.”
2nd Address also offers unique value to property owners, helping them find reliable guests for longer periods of time than the typical short-term turnover.
“The U.S. corporate housing market is roughly $18 billion, and it’s evolving quickly as technology-based marketplaces become more commonplace,” said Joe Kraus, partner at GV. “2nd Address has anticipated this need and created a simple, easy-to-use online solution that will upend how business travelers have experienced long-term rentals in the past.”
