Link Ventures is announcing a $1 million investment in the seed financing round of RateGravity, a Boston-based mortgage technology company. Designed for consumers first, RateGravity aims to disrupt the mortgage industry by matching home buyers with optimal lenders based on criteria determined through a proprietary online pre-qualification process. The company has secured key relationships with prominent lenders in Massachusetts and is able to pass savings along to consumers in the form of lower interest rates. “We are thrilled to be partnering with RateGravity and we believe their technology has the potential to transform the mortgage industry,” said Bill Ferguson of Link Ventures, who will be joining the board as an observer. “We were impressed with the background of the team, particularly their industry expertise, and we look forward to working with them on this journey.” Patrick Boyaggi, the CEO of RateGravity, added: “We are excited to welcome Link Ventures as an investor. Their expertise in consumer internet is evident in their recent success with EverQuote [NASDAQ: EVER], and the ability to leverage their data assets within Cogo Labs will be a huge advantage for us going forward.” RateGravity plans to expand to the rest of New England and all of Florida by the end of 2018.
