The London-based tech startup Lavanda enables institutional real-estate companies and landlords to profit legitimately from Airbnb-style homestays and home sharing. The company has now secured €4.5 million in Series-A round, which was led by Henley Ventures. With fresh funding, the company aims to accelerate its growth in the UK and expand its operations globally, specifically into the US and the Middle East.
What’s interesting about Lavanda is that it started out as a laundry sharing-economy company and later evolved into a tech based startup for handling a completely different sector. We had an opportunity to talk more about the startup with its founder, Guy Westlake, and find out more about the company, how it came to be and where it is headed.
