Tumble Secures $7M Funding for MultiFam Smart Laundry Platform

San Francisco-based Tumble, the smart laundry technology platform, has raised $7 million in seed funding to advance their laundry experience at rental properties nationwide. The cash infusion will be used to provide a more complete all-digital experience for residents, while modernizing the shared laundry experience into revenue-generating assets for property managers. Tumble also plans to introduce a pickup and delivery service for consumers.

Tumble’s cashless, cardless model allows residents to simply download the app, add balance to their wallet, choose their location and connect to the washer and dryers. They can also pay, track and lock their machines, getting notifications when the cycle is complete.

“The multifamily industry has been stifled by ‘dumb laundry’ for way too long. Tumble is saving property managers and their residents with the first ‘smart laundry’ experience. With Tumble, one the of the most important amenities is now a valuable revenue stream,” said the company’s CEO Scott Patterson.
