Clutter was founded in 2015 by Ari Mir, Brian Jonathan Thomas, and Brian Thomas. In February 2022, CEO Mir said that the company is planning for an IPO in 2023. These comments should not be interpreted to mean that the company is formally pursuing or foregoing an IPO.
Clutter describes itself as "an end-to-end logistics and supply chain platform" with the goal of streamlining and optimizing the moving and self storage industries. The company employs its own local moving teams and owns storage facilities throughout the country, the highest concentration being in California. In 2019, Clutter raised $200 million in venture funding in a series D round led by SoftBank Vision Fund that also included Sequoia Capital, Atomico Ventures, and GV. More recently, the company merged with MakeSpace, a competitor brand that will operate under the Clutter brand. After the 2019 funding round, Clutter was valued at $580 million.
