Teakwood Capital, a Dallas, Texas private equity firm, announced today that it has made a growth capital investment in Denver-based HomeSphere, the homebuilding industry’s first and only B2B digital lead generation and customer retention platform.
HomeSphere hosts a digital community of nearly 1,900 local and regional home builders and 55 national building product manufacturers representing 80 brands. This investment will allow the company to leverage Teakwood’s operational and technology development capabilities to further expand its sales, marketing and market intelligence products, delivering significant return on investment to its customers.
“Colorado is a strong and growing technology center, and we are pleased to have identified a solid investment opportunity in HomeSphere,” said Shawn Kelly, Managing Director at Teakwood Capital. “The HomeSphere team has done a superior job developing its service platform and delivering strong returns for customers, and Teakwood looks forward to bringing its operational and strategic expertise as we work alongside them to further company growth and client value.”
HomeSphere’s solutions provide builders with access to exclusive rebate opportunities formerly available to the largest national homebuilders; offer manufacturers’ sales teams a fail-safe strategy for developing targeted leads among local builders who, as a category, are constructing 75 percent of today’s new homes; and strengthen the connection between distributors and their builders.
“Oour team is excited about the great opportunities that lie ahead given this investment by Teakwood,” said HomeSphere President and CEO Glenn Renner. “We see a bright future for our company, and most importantly, significant value for our customers-builders, manufacturers and distributors.”
