A little less than three months ago Tim, Tyler and I launched RadPad. We had this idea that we could build a much better way to help you find a great place to live. We launched our iPhone app in our hometown of Los Angeles and invited all of our friends to try it out.
The last three months have been incredible for us and it’s all thanks to everyone who has downloaded RadPad, tried it out and for some of you, found an awesome new pad.
Today, I’m very humbled and honored to let you all know that Tom McInerney and Chris Ovitz are joining our team as investors and advisors. Not only are they incredible entrepreneurs who have built very successful businesses, but both of them believe in our vision and are going to help us build a better company for you.
Tom has an incredible track record of helping entrepreneurs realize their vision. You may know some of his other portfolio investments including Klout where he also served as C.O.O.
Chris is the co-founder and head of biz dev at Viddy, the world’s largest social video mobile application. You may have heard Viddy just raised a $30mm Series B (pretty cool).
I asked Tom and Chris why they chose to invest in RadPad:
“I’m excited about the RadPad product and opportunity to see apartments more visually with a mobile experience. The founding team behind RadPad has the right product and engineering DNA to make things a lot easier for both renters and landlords!” said Tom.
Chris added “While I think RadPad is a brilliant idea and solves a major problem in the rental market, that is not why I invested. I invest in people and I believe the combined talent and passion that Jonathan and his team have will lead the company to success – and I want to be on board for the ride.”
Thanks to all of you who have downloaded RadPad and promoted it to your friends. We’re just getting warmed up. We have some really awesome new features in the works that we’re super excited to share with you.
– Jon / Founder & CEO
