The fast-growing PropTech company, WeMaintain, based in Paris and London, has raised €30m in Series B funding. The raise follows WeMaintain’s acquisition of fire alarm solutions company Shokly, and allows WeMaintain to accelerate its international expansion and extend its proprietary technology across the built environment.
WeMaintain’s latest million-dollar cash-backing moves the company closer to realising the company’s ambition to manage the critical elements of a building and power smart cities.
New investors supplying the €30m raise are: Red River West, BPIFrance Digital Ventures, and Swiss Immo Lab. Existing investors have signalled their support.
Transforming the market
Since its Paris launch in 2017, WeMaintain has transformed the regulated maintenance market, initially supplying elevator and escalator solutions. WeMaintain is driving innovation in commercial and residential real estate.
WeMaintain gives asset owners and operators an end-to-end solution for implementing critical maintenance, using rich data collected by its IoT hardware and powered by cloud-based proprietary technology.
WeMaintain is praised by customers for giving asset owners real time information not previously available to them, improving building maintenance, efficiency and occupant experience.
While making buildings smarter and greener, WeMaintain’s data analysis enables transparency in real estate, enabling building managers to understand building use and make cost savings, underscoring the value of data-driven PropTech in the smart city era.
Having launched in London last year, WeMaintain has struck noteworthy deals with the coworking provider, Workspace and Keolis Amey Docklands (KAD), operators of the Docklands Light Railway (DLR), proving its in-house product has the ability to scale.
The announcement of the opening of its new office in Singapore reflects WeMaintain’s pathway to becoming the international leader in critical building operations.
The company is expanding globally, bringing its solutions to Singapore, which has one of the most sophisticated built environments in the world. WeMaintain has already struck a deal with Singapore Public Procurement Platforms.
Led by Byron Fuller, former COO and CMO of Cimpress businesses, the WeMaintain team will be responsible for the business development of WeMaintain’s operations in Asia Pacific.
Following Singapore, WeMaintain will enter strategic markets in Asia-Pacfic and North America.
In real estate, technology is bringing transparency to the maintenance and repair process, enabling owners and managers to better understand and capitalise on their buildings.
This new round of funding will allow WeMaintain to invest in IoT research and development and create solutions for all regulated building operations and become the leading global player in the smart building sector.
This latest funding round follows historical backing from Eurazeo and Raise Ventures.
