PreFix Closes New Funding Round led by Chicago Ventures
October 02, 2019
PreFix is pleased to announce the close of its most recent funding round. The round was led by Chicago Ventures and oversubscribed. Other investors include Brand Foundry Ventures, Brian Spaly (Founder, Bonobos and Trunk Club), Paul Hedrick (Founder/CEO, Tecovas), Brett Hurt (Founder/CEO, Bazaarvoice and data.world) and Firebrand Ventures. Rob Chesney, a partner at Chicago Ventures and former COO of Trunk Club will be joining our board. (You can read Chicago Ventures’ announcement of their investment here).
We couldn’t be happier with the new investors joining the team and are very excited to start this next phase of growth with them. Nearly all of them come from operating backgrounds where they have rapidly scaled operationally-intensive businesses and digitally native brands. It takes a lot of work to solve some of our customers’ biggest problems. We’re thrilled to have investors who are also not afraid to roll up their sleeves.
They also share our vision of making lives better by enabling people to focus less on the stuff they own and more on the experiences that will truly make them happier. This is what technology should do. All too frequently, it does the opposite by dissipating our attention in ways that have nothing to do with our well-being or that of those we care for.
PreFix eliminates the hassles of home ownership and saves up to 50% off home maintenance costs. Your fully-trained, dedicated Home Manager fixes most things for a low copayment. Seasonal preventive maintenance on all appliances and systems is included, which pays for the cost of the service on its own. For only the most complex repairs we use our vetted contractors at low, negotiated rates with no mark up.
The funding will support our continued expansion in Central Texas, help us launch in other new markets, and expand the portfolio of services we offer to our members. We have just expanded coverage to a number of new zip codes this month which include the Avery Ranch and Circle C communities. We will be launching in Cedar Park/Leander shortly and will continue to add new zip codes monthly.
As we become the trusted partner for an increasing number of homeowners, we remain true to our mission of building our company by building the long-term careers of our employees. This is what companies should do. The majority of our company is now comprised of military veterans who bring impeccable records and an outstanding service ethic. All of our employees are part owners.
We’re also very grateful for the support of all our existing investors including Moonshots Capital, Generation Partners, Capital Factory, and Techstars.
