Birdwatch CEO Chris Rosenbaum points out that “a shocking 68% of homeowners report being stressed or overwhelmed about taking care of their homes. Your family’s biggest purchase should not be your biggest pain, so we’re building Birdwatch to give you confidence and control in caring for your home. We are beyond excited that such accomplished investors see the power in a model that puts people at the center of all we do.”

Gary Benitt, partner at Social Leverage, explains his motivation for the investment: “First and foremost, it’s a product I wish existed as I would definitely be a user and ardent supporter. But just as importantly, Chris has assembled a purpose-built team that is mission-driven to bring this product to market in a intelligent fashion with customer satisfaction as their north star. I’m just excited to be a part of their journey.”

Rare in the startup and home services ecosystems, Birdwatch is a public benefit corporation. By taking equal care of customers, staff and communities, the founding team believes it can unlock exceptional experiences and retention.

Ezra Galston, Founding Partner at Starting Line, sees the larger opportunity as such: “Maintaining an aging home in America is becoming increasingly treacherous. From the scheduling challenges of dual working home families to the unprecedented level of home improvement scams reported to the FTC, real Americans need help managing their home and finding vendors they can actually trust. Historically, those concierge property management services have been restricted only to the wealthy. Birdwatch makes that concierge experience accessible to the masses. We have known the Birdwatch team for a decade and are excited to partner with them in their support of real home owners everywhere.”
