Power Houzz

Renovating a home can be nerve-wracking. There are just too many things to do: you need to manage a budget, select a contractor, and make numerous decorating decisions. Leading renovation and design company Houzz has helped change all that. Houzz makes home renovations so much easier by giving homeowners a platform that provides hundreds of design suggestions, renovation tips, and over 600,000 architects and contractors to choose from. The platform also allows users to purchase home products from thousands of online retailers. What makes Houzz one-of-a-kind is it has successfully built a marketplace that combines community, content and commerce and created a flourishing ecosystem where homeowners, service providers and even manufacturers can interact with each other. Only six years in business, Houzz was recently valued at $2.3 billion and has raised $213.6 million total funding from various investors.
