Rentomojo Raises $2 million in Pre Series A Funding

Furnishing Solutions platform Rentomojo has raised $2 million in Pre-Series A from Accel Partners and IDG Ventures India.

Venkatesh Peddi from IDG Ventures India and Prashanth Prakash from Accel Partners join the board of Directors.
Headquartered in Bengaluru Rentomojo was founded in November 2014 by IIT Madras graduates Geetansh Bamania and Ajay Nain. The company had raised seed capital from London-based investors last year. Currently they operate in four cities: Bengaluru, Mumbai, Delhi NCR and Pune. Categories on the platform include Appliances, Furniture, Packages, Kitchen and Home utility, as well as two wheelers.

Speaking on the occasion, Geetansh Bamania, Co-founder and CEO, Rentomojo, said, “With urbanization, increasing incomes and declining savings among the working professionals, we are witnessing the birth of Access Economy with the advent of Airbnb, Uber, Rentherunway and the likes. We want our users to get an access to a personalized lifestyle without actually owning it. We work as a marketplace and keep this business asset light.”

“We are delighted to have Accel Partners and IDG Ventures India as our partners in our mission to provide convenient and affordable solutions. The funds will fuel our expansion across the country.”

“Rentomojo has a grand vision. Both Geetansh and Ajay have demonstrated excellent execution focus and passion to build out a strong technology platform. Their platform is witnessing exponential growth and it is exciting to be part of this growth,” said Venkatesh Peddi, Executive Director, IDG Ventures India Advisors.

“This is an India innovation, led by young entrepreneurs, built on the philosophy of experience without owning. We are confident that there is an incumbent market for the business, which would help accelerate the business,” said Prashant Prakash, Accel Partners.

The company currently employs over 50 people.
