Livly, a Chicago, IL-based creator of the operating system for physical spaces, raised $10m in seed funding.
The round was led by Pritzker Group Venture Capital, Navitas Capital, and JLL Spark, with participation from The Related Group, Golub & Company, and CA Ventures.
Led by Alex Samoylovich and Adam McCombs, Livly provides property owners and managers with solutions to increase revenue streams by monetizing physical and digital transactions within a building, while offering a one-stop app-based digital experience for the renters (rental payment, renter’s insurance, real-time chat-based scheduling of maintenance and in-unit package deliveries).
Based on a two-year private beta in Chicago, the company’s offering lets property managers manage staff and renter requests to improve the service. Over the next several quarters, Livly plans to roll out its software to its strategic partners, nationally.
Forthcoming are on-demand essentials like custom grocery deliveries, wash and fold laundry, tailored housekeeping services, accessible co-working spaces, keyless mobile-based entry and more.
The company’s platform integrates with multiple property management systems.
