Inzmo was born as BikeID — an international bicycle registry, security marking kit, and insurance for bicycles. “Definitely a real problem to solve, but hard to make a case for VCs to get excited. Not long after the initial pitch, the ambitious founders pivoted and rebranded as Inzmo, which set out to provide hassle-free insurance for millennials,” Rait Ojasaar, Partner at Change Ventures wrote in a blog.

With new money in the bank, Inzmo is taking on burdensome residential rental deposits in Germany. Dominated by 40-million-plus private rental premises, the German law enables landlords to ask for 3 month worth of rental deposit at the signing of the rental agreement. Considering the average deposit size of 4,000 euros and the average duration of a rental agreement of 5 years, vast amounts of tenants’ personal wealth is locked in rental deposits.

“That’s a lot of money one could reasonably expect to spend or invest elsewhere,” Ojasaar said.

To get to their target customers, Inzmo will partner with property owners, agents and marketplaces. As a pledge of credibility, the rental deposit insurance will be backed by Société Générale.
