Lone Rooftop, an Amsterdam, The Netherlands-based proptech platform, raised $2.5m in growth funding.
Nimbus Ventures made the investment.
The company intends to use the funds to expand into U.S. and global markets, opening their first U.S. operation on the East Coast, and grow operations with the number of the employees expected to overcome 100.
Founded in 2014 by CEO Marcel Lamers, Lone Rooftop provides large enterprises with a SaaS based smart building platform to tackle inefficiency and optimize space utilization. By leveraging existing data sources like WiFi, integrating sensor data and applying smart algorithms, the company’s Position Intelligence Engine (PIE) continuously calculates where and how many people are present inside a building — providing rich data and actionable insight in their proprietary dashboards. Alongside space optimization, this data is also being used to allow employees to find an available workspace or conference room as well as achieve energy savings by making lighting and climate systems smarter.
Customers include ABN AMRO Bank, Philips and Royal HaskoningDHV in the Netherlands and other international corporations.
