35 Of The Best Early Stage Investors Just Put $5 Million Into Office Lease Search Engine, 42Floors

Business Insider

42Floors has been quiet since it emerged from Y Combinator last summer and wrote a viral love letter/employment offer to college student, Dan Shipper.

But make no mistake, the startup has been busy.

Today it's announcing its New York City expansion and a $5 million Series A round of financing from more than 30 investors. Pinterest and LinkedIn investor, Jeremy Levine, is joining the board. Jared Kushner, owner of The New York Observer and head of a real estate company, is joining the board as well.

42Floors is a search engine for office leases. It helps businesses find suitable places and acts as a hassle-free broker. "Our plan is to reinvent office search one city at a time," says founder Jason Freedman. "We had huge demand in San Francisco -- so much that we couldn't keep up.  So, for the New York launch we've quadrupled our capacity by partnering with the biggest property owners and brokers beforehand."

Freedman says 35 investors contributed to the round. Here are 32 of them:
