Rentomojo raises $25 Mn led by Edelweiss

Rentomojo, a furnishing rental brand that provides furniture, appliances, and fitness categories on a monthly rental basis, has secured an investment of Rs 210 crore (approximately $25 million) in its ongoing Series D and D1 round. The round is led by Edelweiss Discovery Fund Series – I, with participation from existing investor Chiratae Growth Fund, as well as Magnetic, founded by Rajeev Chitrabhanu.

The firm last raised Rs 145 crore as a part of Series C round in November 2021.

This latest round of funding from investors serves as a launchpad, propelling the company to continue to lead the creation of the appliances and furniture rental category in India, said the company’s founder and CEO Geetansh Bamania.

Headquartered in Bengaluru, Rentomojo operates in 16 cities and has served close to 450,000 customers since its inception. The company has also built relationships with most of the prominent lenders across the country to serve the increasing demands of the increasing customer. In addition to its focus on an online channel, Rentomojo has established offline experience centers across all major pin codes of Bengaluru.

Rentomojo claims to have been profitable for the last 10 quarters. As per startup data intelligence platform TheKredible, Rentomojo registered a revenue of Rs 121 crore in FY23 compared to Rs 98.6 crore in FY22. During the period, the firm turned profitable with Rs 6.19 crore profit against Rs 13.5 crore loss in the previous fiscal year.

It competes with Furlenco, Rentickle, Cityfurnish, and to some extent Pepperfry. In July last year, Sleepwell-parent Sheela Foam signed an agreement to acquire 35% stake in Furlenco. The deal roughly values the Bengaluru-based company at around Rs 857 crore (over $100 million). Pepperfry also raised $23 million in September last year and announced the appointment of new CEO following the demise of the company’s long-time CEO Ambareesh Murthy.
