CasaOne raises $50 million from Credit Suisse

San Francisco, CA, 19th June 2020: Furniture rental company CasaOne has received USD 50 million (around Rs 375 crore) of debt financing from financial services company Credit Suisse.

“In light of COVID-19, we are seeing a further acceleration in demand for on-demand, flexible furniture rental and leasing options in addition to remote work or work from home solutions. This funding will help us expand into newer equipment categories to support businesses emerging out of the current crisis,” company’s chief executive Shashank Shankaranarayana said.
