Our mission

We’re working together towards one common goal: making homeownership more valuable and accessible.

I would recommend this company to anyone that is looking for a resolution to your financial situation. We had a lot of equity and we wanted to do upgrades to our home. This is a wonderful way to financially achieve our goals.

Point helped me get a portion of my equity when I needed it most. Otherwise it would've been hard to get it through conventional ways. Point relieved the pressure on my debt, emotional and mental health.

Becoming Point

The inspiration

The members of Point’s experienced founding team are inspired by their own interactions with traditional home equity financing. Eddie Lim, between successful startups, is looking for some liquidity while deciding on his next venture. His bank rejects his application for a HELOC due to a lack of conventional W2 income. 

Meanwhile, Eoin Matthews receives a proposition from some friends who are trying to purchase their dream home in Boston, but don’t have enough for the down payment – would he consider investing in their home in exchange for a share of the future appreciation?

The beginning

Eddie Lim, Eoin Matthews, and Alex Rampell come together to create Point, a home equity platform. Point’s flagship product, the HEI (Home Equity Investment), empowers homeowners to unlock their equity when they need it most.

Series A

Point raises a $9.1M Series A led by Andreessen Horowitz. At the time of funding, the tiny (but mighty) team has just seven employees!

Series B

With headcount passing 30, Point outgrows their first office, and moves into a new space, which has housed a number of startups over the years, in Palo Alto, CA.

Point raises a $42M Series B led by Prudential Financial and DAG Ventures. The team grows to over 50 people, and Point funds its 1,000th homeowner!

Big changes

Just a month after moving into a state-of-the-art new office in downtown Palo Alto, Point goes remote during the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. Our recruiting efforts go national as our team expands to Dallas, New York City, and all over the country.


Point, with partner Redwood Trust and underwriter Nomura, complete the industry’s first securitization backed entirely by Home Equity Investments. Point also announces over $1B in capital commitments from financial institutions buying the HEI. The new asset class has officially arrived.

Series C

Point raises a $120M Series C led by WestCap. Point funds its 5,000th customer in February.

A rated $1B asset

Point funds its 10,000th homeowner and surpasses $1B in Home Equity Investment originations. DBRS Morningstar creates a rating methodology for HEIs, and Point and Redwood Trust complete a $139M rated securitization, opening HEI access to a new class of investors.
