"Curbio has prioritized hiring a diverse leadership team –currently, a third of our board members are women of color and half of our executive team are women."

2022 has been a year of unprecedented growth for Curbio, with a total of $90M in funding being raised between its Series B round in January and its recent $25M credit facility closing. The company has expanded into six new U.S. markets, grown its workforce by 68% and invested in its proprietary technology to dramatically improve the customer experience in home improvement for real estate.
