Proptech specialist Allthings receives CHF 13.7 million in Series A round

26. July 2018

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.
