The vacation and short-term rental platform will use the funding to continue its growth throughout Mexico City and Puerto Vallarta
MEXICO CITY, Sept. 26, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Naya Homes, LATAM’s newest PropTech company specializing in vacation and short-term rental management, has raised a $5-million seed round that will fuel its growth throughout Mexico. With its core focus on creating value for real estate investors and homeowners, the company leverages its robust technology stack to help owners maximize the profitability of their properties, minimize their operational stress and provide them with greater visibility into real-time financial performance.
The round was led by Flybridge Capital Partners with participation from Primary Venture Partners, Clocktower Technology Ventures, K50 Ventures, Carao Ventures, Trip Ventures, Colibrí Equity Ventures, Derive Ventures, in addition to several former executives from Uber’s Latin America team. This funding follows a $600-thousand pre-seed led by Primary Venture Partners in March 2022.
“We believe Naya can deliver incredible value to numerous stakeholders across the residential real estate value chain at scale,” says Jeff Bussgang, Partner at Flybridge Capital Partners.  “Naya’s founding team is incredibly well-positioned, having on-the-ground experience managing operationally intensive businesses in LATAM, ranging from Uber to Sonder.”
Founding Team:
Humberto Pacheco. Humberto was a Regional General Manager at Uber Latin America. Later, he launched and ran operations at CloudKitchens in Latin America
Roberto Fernández del Castillo.  Roberto was a General Manager and Head of Shared Rides at Uber Latin America before launching Sonder in Mexico as its first Country General Manager and running Operations for Conekta (Mexico’s first FinTech startup)
Iacopo Santini. Iacopo started his career at Bain Capital, where he covered private debt solutions, before working at Primary Venture Partners in New York City
Relative to LatAm incumbents who execute master leases on larger buildings, Naya Homes is an asset-light operator leveraging its funding to maximize profitability for all types of properties— from individual apartments to vacation villas — through innovative technology solutions.
“At Naya Homes, we’re focused on maximizing returns for real estate investors and homeowners. By removing operating complexity and providing enhanced visibility into financial performance, we will drive tremendous value to owners in destinations across Latin America. Long term, we will leverage our data to unleash the potential of this asset class in the region with other products and services that will enrich the owner experience,” states Humberto Pacheco, Naya Homes Co-founder and CEO.

Anyone following stock market trends in 2022 will be well aware of the widespread drawbacks; apart from some outliers such as energy, most corners of the market have been beaten to a pulp.

The Federal Reserve will hike its key interest rate to a much higher peak than predicted two weeks ago and the risks are skewed towards an even higher terminal rate, according to economists polled by Reuters. That change in expectations came after the Fed raised rates by 75 basis points last week for the third straight meeting and foresaw going higher than it had previously thought to tame inflation, which is running over four times above target. Since then, already battered global stocks went much deeper into bear market territory – a decline of 20% or more – on fears of recession and most currencies weakened further against the multi-decade high dollar.

Such has been the force of the cumulative headwinds in 2022 that trying to make headway in this year’s downtrending market has been a struggle for most. A slowing economy, decades-high inflation and the accompanying rate hikes in the attempt to tame it, not to mention Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and the impact on energy prices have all played their part in souring sentiment. The result has been widespread share losses. The good news is that those with a strong stomach could use the opportunity
