Stoa USA, a proptech that provides a professional single-family home investment platform, FlipOS, announced today raising a $50 million equity funding round led by Zeev Ventures, according to a press release.
The company says it will use the funding to finance expansion of its proptech and to hire 200 people by the end of 2022 (300% increase from the start of the year).
It says these roles will be focused at its headquarters markets in Phoenix, and added that it also plans to partner with more real estate investors in new markets.
Our team is thrilled to be raising this $50 million round at a significantly higher valuation than our previous round, which just closed last November,” stated Stoa cofounder Or Agassi in the release.
“Our continued growth indicates that we’re meeting a real need for real estate investors while providing communities across the country with good homes,” Agassi said.
Launched in early 2021, Stoa has raised about $200 million in venture funding to date, including a $136 million Series B led by Cantor Fitzgerald in late 2021.

“The Stoa team has built something truly unique with potential to dramatically change the way the single-family investment market operates. I am proud to support them in creating more good single-family homes through technology,” stated Zeev Ventures founding partner Oren Zeev.
