Urban Compass Raises $20 Million at $150 Million Valuation

After selling two Internet startups to Google Inc. and Twitter Inc., Ori Allon plans to announce a $20 million funding round today for a company that sifts through another kind of complex data: New York apartment rentals.

The investment in Urban Compass -- started by Allon and Robert Reffkin, a veteran of Goldman Sachs Group Inc. -- values the company at $150 million, according to a person with knowledge of the terms. That’s five times the value of the company at its $8 million seed round in November 2012, said the person, who asked not to be identified because the information is private.
