Why the PropTech fund

The real estate landscape is undergoing a profound transformation, and at the heart of this evolution lies Proptech. It’s predicted that by 2030, Proptech will get a whopping $94 billion in global investment, and that’s just a slice of the massive $14.4 trillion construction market pie. But here’s the kicker: despite its immense scale, the industry has suffered from a lack of innovation, leaving critical challenges without solutions.

In a world where our population is growing, we need to switch up our energy game, deal with high housing costs, and stare down inflation. That’s where Proptech swoops in like a superhero. Did you know a mind-blowing 40% of the EU’s energy use comes from buildings? This illustrates the importance of finding clean energy solutions and solutions to address the issues with affordable housing and inefficiency within the built-asset and construction industries.

Startup Wise Guys isn’t backing down from these challenges. We’re teaming up with top-notch companies and visionaries to take on the big problems – think high energy use, pollution, lack of affordable homes, dated inefficient infrastructure, and sluggish work sites. Our Proptech fund is all about making a real change. We direct our focus towards startups operating across domains such as Artificial Intelligence, sustainable development, IoT, shared economy, SaaS, construction tech, Virtual Reality, materials science, robotics, and drones.

Leading the charge is our Fund’s General Partner, an expert in sustainable development with a global perspective. And together with Startup Wise Guys’ passion for making a difference, sustainability is baked into everything we do.

Our Proptech Fund is poised to propel innovative startups that are reshaping the real estate industry’s future.
