Homeis is a "culture network" for local, foreign-born communities. The company's mission for the product is to connect immigrants together around tasks such as finding local services, learning about their new society, and connecting with peers in a similar situation as themselves. Ran Harnevo, Co-Founder & CEO of Homeis, joined us to chat about how the company is helping newcomers get situated in their new homes.
Homeis has officially launched. The company also brought in a fresh round of funding that brought in $4 million. Harnevo breaks down how he'll put the new investment to work.
Harnevo is breaking into a competitive space. Facebook, with over 2 billion users, is no stranger to connecting people. He says his platform is more focused on the idea of community, rather than news and entertainment.
