SearchLand, a London, UK-based proptech startup, raised £200k in seed funding.
The funding round, part SEIS and part EIS, came from a number of angel investors.
The company intends to use the funds to hire new sales and marketing personnel, as well as to build out its automation tools to further improve the platform.
Founded in 2020 by Hugh Gibbs, SearchLand is an off-market site sourcing tool that allows property developers, architects and investors to find potential sites and contact the landowner directly through the platform.
The software-as-a-service platform automates and accelerates users’ hunt for viable plots of land by allowing them to search sites based on a range of data, including title boundaries and ownership, permitted development rights, price paid records, and planning application analysis.
Using hundreds of map layers, users can rapidly pinpoint sites that meet their specific criteria, with workflow tools allowing them to easily contact the landowners of those sites.
The company is planning for a series A funding round in 2023.
