Irish-founded startup Lintil, which aims to streamline and simplify the process of buying a home, has raised €250,000 to help power the company's plans for UK expansion.

Lintil is a free-to-use online platform that guides home-buyers through the home-buying journey and introduces them to the service providers they need along the way.

As part of its international rollout, the property technology firm aims to help simplify the property purchasing process for home buyers across Ireland and more recently, the UK.

This latest funding follows the official launch of the company in July and coincides with successful partnerships with and FBD.

Lintil has helped more than 5,000 Irish home buyers through the process of one of the largest purchases of their lives.

It secured funding from Enterprise Ireland as part of its High Potential Startup (HPSU) programme, which is aimed at helping Irish companies scale internationally.

Lintil co-founder and CEO Emmet Creighton said the new funding marks a significant milestone for Lintil, as it continues its journey to make the home-buying process easier for all.

"We are delighted to have Enterprise Ireland to support us as we plan our international expansion. We've had an incredible few months since we initially launched, assisting more than 5,000 users in Ireland alone," Mr Creighton said.

"Our concept is based around the entire digitisation of the property purchasing process, making it easier for homebuyers to secure and purchase the property of their dreams," he added.

Niall McEvoy, Manager of Enterprise Ireland's High Potential Start-Up unit, said that Lintil has ambitious plans to internationally scale its offering and its entry into the UK market is an important milestone.

"Lintil is one of a number of innovation-driven Irish companies that are making a real impact domestically and internationally and we look forward to working closely with the company to support the execution of the business plan," Mr McEvoy added.
