Rental finder VeryApt just raised $735,000, largely from investors outside of Philadelphia.
Investors include New York City-based Great Oaks Venture Capital, San Francisco-based Equipo Ventures and new Philly Startup Leaders president Brock Weatherup, said cofounder Ashrit Kamireddi.
The company, which previously received funding from the city’s StartUp PHL angel fund, will use the money to expand to new markets, grow the team and develop a mobile app. They’re primarily in six markets right now, with Philadelphia and D.C. being their most active ones, and hope to be in at least 20 by the end of 2016.
