TAMPA — Homee, an on-demand property maintenance platform that provides homeowners and property managers with instant access to skilled service providers, has closed an $11 million Series A round of financing.

The influx of capital from The Home Depot and Activate Capital Partners — a growth equity firm with offices in Philadelphia and San Francisco — brings the total invested in the Tampa-based company to $15 million, according to a press release.

Homee has experienced dramatic growth over the past year and says the investment will help it launch new markets and expand its growing vendor network throughout the United States.

“Homee is a category-leading, on-demand property maintenance platform that is changing the way homeowners and property managers find, contract and pay for qualified heating and air conditioning, plumbing, electrical, and general handyman services,” states Homee co-founder and CEO Doug Schaedler in the release. “The new investment from Activate Capital Partners and The Home Depot is integral to Homee’s growth, and we are pleased to have them involved with Homee.”

Using GPS-enabled smartphone technology, Homee service providers accept new requests under a minute on average and are at the job location for repairs, improvements or maintenance in an average of 30 minutes or less, the release states. The service is available for single-family homes, condos, offices and restaurants.
