Orlando Magic center Mo Bamba believes a Philadelphia-based digital real estate brokerage, that’s now expanding to Orlando, is a slam dunk. Bamba joined in Houwzer’s $9.5 million Series A earlier this year through New York-based investment firm Admiral Capital Group. The news of Bamba’s involvement comes as Houwzer is in the midst of setting down roots in Orlando, where it plans to hire up to 20 people in the next two years, CEO Mike Maher told the Orlando Business Journal.
The chance to make homeownership more accessible was one reason Bamba decided to invest in the firm with Admiral Capital, which was co-founded by NBA Hall of Famer David Robinson. Admiral Capital co-led Houwzer’s $4.5 million investment in January 2019, and participated in Houwzer’s $9.5 million Series A. The most recent funding round, led by Princeton-based Edison Partners, means Houwzer’s now raised $17 million in venture capital. “The investments that we make go beyond good business decisions – they should also be about making an impact,” Bamba said in a statement.
Orlando Magic Forward Mo Bamba was one of the 44% who sat out the election four years ago. “I didn’t vote in 2016 because I didn’t see the importance of voting … when you’re around adults who say things like you know it doesn’t really matter who, you know doesn’t really matter, my vote is not going to count, you know that really sticks with you,” Bamba told ABC News. Bamba said he is working to make sure his teammates and his central Florida community don’t make the same mistake. “I just might get ‘vote’ tattooed on my forehead at this point,” he said.
