Fountain, the Mobile Advice Marketplace Acquired By Porch.com

Fountain, a startup by Mint’s founder Aaron Patzer’s is acquired by home services platform Porch.com for an undisclosed amount. And this is the first-ever acquisition of Porch.com.

Fountain is an on-demand answers app which is likely to replace Porch’s Home Assistant program. As the operations move forwards a new office will be opened in San Francisco, California.

Fountain offers advice to users from a slew of curated experts. You can get one-on-one advice through text or video call from across a variety of industries, including veterinarians, physicians, lawyers, tech experts, and even those in the home improvement space.

As reported by VentureBeat, for now Fountain will remain independent, but it will eventually be merged into Porch’s main app and the company will share details as it’s done!

Patzer, Fountain’s founder himself will not be taking on a full-time role within the company, instead opting for a product advisor role while the Fountain cofounder Jean Sini will remain with the company and run the San Francisco office.

As far as Porch’s concern is there, the excitement is at optimum. CEO Matt Ehrlichman says, “With the acquisition of Fountain, we will take huge steps forward with our consumer experience, helping homeowners get connected with the very best Guaranteed Professionals or now complete projects themselves with help from Home Experts, powered by Fountain’s natural language search, artificial intelligence, and communication technology”.
