There’s a niche for everything. Even jobs like plumbing and AC repairs have a dedicated team of professionals. Sadly, most of these are small-time and individually-operated businesses. These types of businesses thrive because they get just the right amount of exposure it needs. But not for Ara Mahdessian and Vahey Kuzoyan.
ServiceTitan is Now Worth $8.3 Billion
These two met back in college and helped their fathers. They developed software to help manage their business. Today, Ara and Vahey have valued the company at $8.3 billion. ServiceTitan is a platform where companies work with several professionals. These professionals specialize in plumbing services, electrical services, and AC maintenance. Companies can hire multiple professionals via ServiceTitan. The program helps keep their buildings and work sites running.
ServiceTitan receives funding from different investors. This includes Index Ventures and Dragoneer. Investors like Bessemer Venture Partners and ICONIQ also are part of the funding. These investors see the opportunity in fast-growing startups like ServiceTitan. The trend resulted in the company seeing investments flow in and raise its value to $1.65 billion.
The company aggregates professionals from different fields with different specialties. These can be plumbers, electricians, AC technicians, and other home-related professional workers.
The business partners are looking to hire more individuals. The additional manpower will make it easy for the two to expand and run the company. In addition to hiring additional staff, ServiceTitan started making acquisitions. Recently, they’ve acquired the company which developed Jayar software.
The two struck a goldmine when it comes to startups. The annual expenditure for home services in the US is $400 billion. This is a good indication of the company’s future growth.
The company goes back to 2012, by Ara Mahdessian and Vahey Kuzoyan. Both their parents worked in air conditioning contracting. They developed software to run their business.
