Bellhops raises $31.4 million Series C, probably largest single round ever for a Chattanooga start-up

In what is described as probably the most amount that a Chattanooga start-up has ever raised in a single round, Bellhops announced this week that its Series C, led by Advance Venture Partners, brought in $31.4 million.

Bellhops is now in 31 markets and, with the new funding, will grow further, including opening a new office in Atlanta.
