Roomi hits 1 million users and raises $11 million to grow its shared housing marketplace

Roomi, a peer-to-peer marketplace for finding roommates, has raised $11 million in a series A round of funding led by Atami Capital, with participation from Rosecliff Ventures, Townsquare Media, JXC Ventures, DCM, and Great Oaks Venture Capital.

Founded out of New York in 2013, Roomi enables anyone to find shared housing in their desired area, with filters available based on move-in dates, duration, and amenities such as “couples ok,” “air conditioning,” “gym,” and more. Similarly, leaseholders can use the platform to easily list any empty rooms they have, if a roommate vacates.
