The investment wing of Times Group, Times Bridge has strategically partnered with Houzz , a leading global platform for home remodeling and design. The partnership is aimed to integrate content from the platform into all of Times Group's digital properties.

The partnership will also allow Indian homeowners and professionals to connect on the unique Houzz platform. Houzz enables homeowners to connect to home remodelling and design professionals.

"From its unique design aesthetic and products to its professional talent and expertise, India has become an important part of the global design language Houzz is facilitating," said Adi Tatarko, Houzz CEO and cofounder in a statement.

"We're delighted to partner with The Times Group and connect even more Indian homeowners, home design enthusiasts and home professionals with our global platform," he added.

The company started its India operations in January 2017 and its local community of homeowners and home design enthusiasts has grown by 50 per cent. In India, its professional community grew to more than 80,000 active home professionals in over 60 categories including architects, interior designers and product designers.

TechCrunch reported this will be " the authentic Houzz experience" with the full functionality of the platform, which connects users with home remodeling and design professionals.

Rishi Jaitly, CEO of Times Bridge said, " Times Bridge's mission is to bring the world's best ideas to India and share India's best insights with the world. In the last eight years, Houzz has proven itself as an iconic company. We look forward to harnessing the unmatched assets of Times Bridge and The Times Group to ensure Houzz's platform empowers users and professionals alike across the length and breadth of a rapidly-changing India."

Times Bridge also invested an undisclosed amount in the company which recently closed a $400 million Series E financing led by ICONIQ Capital with a $4 billion valuation earlier this year.

The company already operates localised platforms in 14 countries outside of the United States and it launched a pilot test in India last year in November.
