Managed accommodation provider Stanza Living has raised Rs 110 crore ($13 million) in what appears to be a bridge round led by Alpha Wave. The equity round is coming after a gap of more than three years for the Delhi-based startup.

The board at Stanza Living has passed a special resolution to issue 1,207 preference shares at a price of Rs 911440.17 each to raise Rs 110 crore, its regulatory filing accessed from the Registrar of Companies shows.

Alpha Wave has pumped in Rs 83 Crore while Matrix Partners, Accel India and Peak XV invested Rs 27 crore cumulatively.

As per startup data intelligence platform TheKredible, Stanza Living has been valued at around Rs 3,900 crore ($470 million). This is a marginal jump in valuation from Rs 3,525 crore ($424 million) in the last equity round.

The firm was reportedly in talks to raise funding to the tune of $25 million.

Stanza Living had raised $57 million in a debt round led by Kotak Mahindra Bank and RBL Bank in March 2022 and $100 million in an equity round in April 2021. So far, it has scooped up over $230 million across equity and debt rounds.

Stanza Living is a managed accommodation platform which provides co-living solutions for working professionals and students. The firm claims to have an inventory of more than 75,000 beds in 450 plus residences with a presence across 24 cities.

Stanza Living’s revenue from operations surged to Rs 442 crore in FY23 from Rs 115 crore in FY22. As per TheKredible, its losses increased by 18.71% to Rs 495 crore in FY23 as compared to Rs 417 crore in FY22. The firm is yet to file its audited financial statements for FY24. 

Stanza Living competes with Colive, Your Space, Settl, Union Living and Coho. Last year, Tiger Global-backed home rental startup NestAway was acquired by Aurum PropTech (formerly Majesco Ltd) in a 90% haircut in valuation to $11 million.
