This means that virtually all the guesswork is eliminated when making the next real estate endeavor.” said Arip Tirta, co-founder and CEO of UrbanIndo.

Bandung-based UrbanIndo currently has 11 employees and said it plans to use the proceeds from the investment round to accelerate its growth, bolster its management team and pursue strategic partnerships.
