Proptech specialist Allthings receives CHF 13.7 million in Series A round
Basel, Switzerland/Berlin, Germany — German-Swiss PropTech company Allthings closes its Series A financing with 13.7 million Swiss francs. In addition to lead investors Earlybird, Idinvest andKingstone Capital Partners, existing investors Creathor Ventures, Technology Funds as well as current advisors are participating. The capital will be used to further develop the platform and drive expansion within Europe.
Allthings transforms buildings into digital products. The platform gives building users access to digital services that make everyday life easier, connect people and improve communication. Property owners benefit from unprecedented transparency in buildings, neighborhoods and entire portfolios. Thanks to the modular and open structure of the Allthings platform, third-party services can be integrated at will, as in an app store for buildings.
“The real estate industry is just starting to adapt to the digital age and holds great potential. Allthings integrates all parties such as owners, asset managers, property managers, service providers and tenants on one platform. This fundamentally improves value creation and enables the real estate sector to make data-driven decisions,” said Dr. Fabian Heilemann, Partner at Earlybird.
“One way to make cities smarter is to start with the buildings. Connecting all parties of a building and offering a variety of digital services increases the quality of life and work. This is what Allthings does very successfully and therefore fits perfectly into our smart city strategy,” says Matthieu Bonamy, senior investment director at Idinvest.
Currently, more than 100 medium to large real estate companies in Switzerland, Germany, Austria, France, Portugal and the Netherlands use the platform as part of their digitization strategy. “Just as in other industries before, property owners now want to take control and manage the relationship with their customers. We help them do that in a scalable and modular way. With our new investors, we are taking the next steps on our journey — for a better life in buildings,” said Marc Beermann, COO and co-founder of Allthings.
Allthings transforms buildings into digital products. The company was founded in Basel in 2013 as a spin-off from ETH Zurich and has locations in Basel, Berlin, Frankfurt am Main and Freiburg im Breisgau. The 60-member team aims to improve indoor living in a sustainable way.
