TheGuarantors is an insurtech company that offers a full risk management platform, which helps landlords mitigate all tenant risks. The software platform, which is free for landlords, increases leasing velocity, drives down vacancy, and makes renting safer for landlords and tenants alike.
TheGuarantors platform is accepted in around 300,000 units and has been adopted by some of the leading landlords and property managers in the U.S. The Guarantors started in New York in 2015 but quickly expanded into Boston, Chicago, and the DC area. Today, they are live in 46 states.
In 2018, TheGuarantors expanded their offering into the commercial office rental space with Securiti, a security deposit replacement tool. For just a fraction of the cost, tenants can deliver a security package to their landlord without locking up their capital for years to come.
In 2019 TheGuarantors announced $15 million in Series B funding, bringing their total amount raised to $27 million. The company has also built out their current product offerings (Guaranti, an expanded program of multifamily products), re-branded, and successfully expanded nationally.
