New Delhi : Home aggregator and rental management start-up based in Bengaluru Zenify announced its fund raising in Pre-Series A worth Rs. six crore from High Networth Individuals ( HNI), who have a minor stake in Zenify.
Zenify will use the raised funds to further expand their range of services in India and strengthen its team to compliment their capabilities.

Sudarshan Purohit, Kailash Rathi and Ankur Agarwal, alumni of IIT- M, co-founded Zenify, which lists over 1700 properties available for rent across Bengaluru. The platform provides owners and tenants a hassle free system to find and rent an apartment. The company aims to standardize the market rental pricing by predicting the market value of each property listed on their portal.
“This is an exciting moment for us. Over the past few months we have been concentrating on developing new services to ease pain points of rentals in India. Today, India has an untapped market of 4.5 billion for Managed Home Rentals with four million unattended NRI properties,” said Co-founder and CEO Zenify, Sudarshan Purohit.
“We strongly believe that the real estate industry has a lot of potential for change and growth and the impending years will bring about the required changes, the industry so greatly needs,” added Sudarshan Purohit.
He further added, “We have already witnessed a major shift in consumer behavior. Over 90 percent of the rental property booking is being done online through Zenify. We hope to take our product to other tenants and owners across India and help solve the rental problems.”
The company foresees scaling its business across the major cities of the country in less than two years and becoming a prominent player in the rental segment. (ANI)
