Skarlett raises €4 million to “make liquid the real estate assets” of those over 60
Founded by Townley Le Guénédal (Operandi), Aurélien Gouttefarde (Homeloop) and Benjamin Gaignault (Ornikar), the start-up Skarlett raised €4 million from Alven, Raise Seed for Good, Motier Ventures, Farmers and Xavier Niel ( Kima).
With this funding early stage, the start-up intends in particular to “make liquid the real estate assets” of those over 60. To do this, via its web platform, Skarlett wants to modernize “dusty processes” such as life annuity with or without an annuity, mortgage life loan or even sale of bare ownership. “Beyond a solid financial model, we were impressed by the ability of Townley, Benjamin and Aurélien to place themselves from the point of view of the consumer, to understand their needs and their questions”, underlines Margaux Gregoir (Alven) , quoted in a press release.
The start-up, which has embarked on an ambitious recruitment plan with the arrival of 60 employees by the end of 2024, claims to offer a “full range of services”, between real estate, insurance offer, financial support and other leisure activities. .
In fact, Skarlett, which relies on a network of institutional investors, supports its clients in “choosing the solution that best suits their profile and their life plan”. And provides them directly with up to 60% of the value of their property. Margaux Gregoir, again: “Skarlett has a strong societal impact by specifically addressing people over 60, by promoting home care for example or by providing a solution for financing their retirement projects and expenses. »
