Britain: British startup Perchpeek, the AI-powered relocation agent, is today announcing it has raised around €2.2 million, led by early-growth experts Episode 1.
Founded in 2018 as a UK property marketplace, Perchpeek was originally dubbed ‘Tinder for renting’, but has since developed into a completely unique, global relocation service that is transforming the relocation industry.
The Perchpeek app combines AI-powered recommendations with relocation experts to curate properties and additional services for the user. As they use the app, recommendations become more tailored until they’ve found the perfect home in the perfect area.
The employee is able to drive their entire relocation from within the specially designed Perchpeek app – from house-hunting and virtual tours of schools – to organizing utilities set-ups and shipping quotes. The technology, combined with 24/7 in-app customer support, helps guide employees through every stage of their move from their sofa, reducing the stress, anxiety, time, and money it takes to organize their relocation.
Paul Bennett, Perchpeek’s founder, explained: “In the past relocation agents were incredibly expensive and time-consuming, involved limited choices, lots of traveling back and forth to view properties and visit banks, and was an extremely fragmented experience. Perchpeek’s technology is a game-changer for most companies who can now offer high quality, affordable relocation support to employees of any level wanting to move to any country or city in the world.
This latest round of funding was led by early-growth stage software investor Episode 1, alongside investors from the US, UK, Dubai, Saudi, Germany, Montenegro, and Pakistan with Angel investors including Kevin Felix of ScotiaBank, Jahed Rahman of Aldar, and Kris Rudeegraap of Sendoso.
The investment will be used to further international expansion, taking Perchpeek’s portfolio of 47 countries to over 160 by Q3, as well as growing the US sales team.
