SAM Client Atomico Leads $64M Investment Round in Clutter

Stubbs Alderton & Markiles, LLP client Atomico announced today that it led the $64M investment round in Clutter with Sequoia Capital, Google Ventures (GV) and Fifth Wall.  Clutter is an end-to-end storage company which takes the pain out of cataloging, packing, storing, and returning your items.

 

Stubbs Alderton & Markiles’ attorneys representing Atomico on the deal included Caroline Cherkassky and Kelly Laffey.

Clutter is a tech-enabled storage company that lets you store extra stuff without actually leaving your house. No more getting stuck in traffic just to put away your camping gear, or completely unpacking a storage unit in order to locate a box of family photos. With Clutter, all your stored items are ready to view online, and getting them out of storage is as easy as ordering a pizza. They believe a 5-star experience should be the norm, and that service companies should actually be of service to their customers.

Reps from Atomico stated, “At Atomico we invest in global opportunities where we know that we can help scale a business in specific markets around the world. Our thesis is that great companies now come from everywhere and so we’re always on the move, looking to find the most ambitious entrepreneurs, to help them execute their plans to improve the way we live. One of the places we’ve been spending time recently, and where we see clear momentum around the tech scene, is Los Angeles. And we believe we’ve unearthed a global category leader in LA-headquartered Clutter.”
