LawnStarter Raises $6M Series A to Expand On-Demand Lawn Care Service
Austin, TX– On-demand lawn care platform LawnStarter announced today that it has secured a Series A investment of $6 million led by San Francisco-based Binary Capital. This round brings LawnStarter’s total funding to $7.25 million and will help the company expand its geographical coverage and build out a team of key hires.
This round of funding comes only six months after LawnStarter closed its $1 million seed round, which Gary Vaynerchuk (via Vayner/RSE) and several individual angels participated in. The Series A funding comes after a spring season of stellar growth, smooth operations, and incredible reception by both consumers and lawn service providers.
“This money will allow us to build the all-star team it takes to win. We’ll be bringing on a VP of Engineering, several engineers, and a couple marketing professionals. City expansion is on the horizon as well” says co-founder and CEO Steven Corcoran.
Homeowners use LawnStarter to schedule lawn mowing, fertilization, bush trimming and several other specialty services from vetted, local lawn service providers.
Key benefits and features of the LawnStarter platform include:
- Connects consumers to lawn care providers for convenient online scheduling
- A mobile app to manage scheduling and specialty services
- Guaranteed quality of service
- Access to passionate team of customer support agents
LawnStarter currently operates in the Washington DC Metro Area, Austin and Orlando. According to Corcoran, LawnStarter plans to expand to several metro areas in the weeks to come.
“We’re proud of what we’ve built, and we couldn’t be more excited to have Binary Capital as partners. While the future is certainly looking bright, it’s important to keep working day and night to create the ultimate experience for both consumers and lawn care companies.”
