The new investment round will finance the further development of the proprietary technology, the strengthening of the team, including by attracting new talent, and foreign expansion.

The lead investor of the round is Sensible Capital, an Italian venture capital firm specialising in Proptech investments, together with Club degli InvestitoriClub degli Investitori, one of the leading business angel groups in Italy. Previously, in 2020, Roomless was selected for the Hubble route by Nana Bianca and Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio di Firenze , which will convert their funding for the company into equity in the seed round. 

Andrea Degli Innocenti, Co-Founder & CMO of Roomless, said: "We are excited to continue our growth with the support of very qualified and representative investors of the venture capital scene in Italy, with whom we share objectives and founding values. With Club degli Investitori, Sensible Capital and its CEO, Silvia Rovere, we share the vision of becoming the biggest European player by focusing on technology and talent".

Silvia Rovere, Founder & CEO of Sensible Capital, said: "The investment round will provide the startup with the necessary resources to grow in Italy and pursue its ambitious expansion plan abroad. With this deal Sensible Capital confirms its mission to become the leader in the proptech sector in Italy, with a strong activism and the ability to create commercial and product development synergies among its portfolio companies. We continue to invest in innovative realities with excellent teams, potential for international scalability and the ability to generate positive impacts on the environment and society".
