News Release

Doorr raises over $1.75M, led by Celtic House and MaRS IAF, to build the future of mortgages

TORONTO, May 15, 2020 /CNW/ – Doorr is excited to announce that it has raised over $1.75M CAD in a Seed financing led by Celtic House Venture Partners and MaRS Investment Accelerator Fund, with participation from Techstars and strategic angel investors.

Doorr’s mortgage platform enables brokers and financial institutions to connect and collaborate with clients on all types of transactions (e.g. pre-approvals, refinances and purchases) through an entirely digital experience. The platform has become a mission critical tool for its customers to run their businesses effectively, as they have traditionally had to rely on poorly designed and antiquated industry tools and/or a variety of non-industry specific software to run their operations.

Jonathan Graff, Venture Partner at Celtic House Venture Partners said, “Doorr is migrating some of the largest producers in the Canadian mortgage industry onto its cloud-based platform, a testament to the benefits of its strong product and service offering. The founders have demonstrated deep technological capabilities that have enabled them to provide an ideal experience for mortgage brokers and their clients.”

“We see Doorr’s vertically-integrated platform as essential for enabling the mortgage broker channel,” said Connor Edwards, Senior Investment Manager, MaRS Investment Accelerator Fund. “I’ve been impressed with the team’s product-led growth and its ability to execute while keeping customers top of mind.”

The new investment round will enable Doorr to further capitalize on its position as a leader in the Canadian mortgage industry, where mortgage brokers and financial institutions are striving to maintain control of the customer journey and deepen their customer relationships. New product innovation is a key area of focus for Doorr, which will improve deal velocity, accuracy, compliance, and the overall client experience.
