Comfy Improves Matching Of Students, Housing

Austin-based Comfy, a startup rental marketplace, said today that it has launched a new version of its platform to help match students with apartment housing. The startup, which offers up its service as an app on iOS, said its software uses personalized algorithms to help students find better housing matches and rentals through interaction with a user, rather than requiring cumbersome fill-in forms. The startup is led by Scott Weinert. The company is backed by Austin Ventures as well as angels, and had announced a small funding round in July.
