DigsConnect has secured an undisclosed amount of funding from Intaba Capital as part of its ongoing Series A round. Launched by Alexandria Procter and Greg Ramsay-Keal in 2018, the DigsConnect platform allows landlords, estate agents and property managers to post their property listings, with students then searching and filtering through these listings to find accommodation that suits their needs, and also find other students to live with. The startup closed a pre-Series A round of funding last year to spearhead its international growth, with a focus on helping African students in the UK and US secure more affordable, convenient, and safe housing. It also entered into a partnership with the world’s largest student accommodation site, Student.com, enabling it to expand its presence to approximately 30 new countries and 400 new cities.
