Other investors that participated in this round include Capital Factory, FLOODGATE, and Silverton Partners. SpareFoot runs the largest online marketplace for self-storage.
SpareFoot has raised a total of $26 million in venture capital since being founded in 2008. Out of this total amount, Insight Venture Partners provided $22 million – $10 million this year and $12 million last year.
“SpareFoot will use this latest investment to double down on engineering and product development,” stated Chuck Gordon, co-founder and CEO of SpareFoot. “We believe there is a big opportunity to expand our offerings in the market, and that’s what we’re going to do. Our goal is to make renting a storage unit easier than booking a hotel room, and this new investment will help us make that happen.”
