Berner Kantonalbank (BEKB) joins venture capital firm Swiss Immo Lab, to invest in innovative proptech startups.
BEKB is now the fourth partner alongside Avobis, Hypothekarbank Lenzburg and Gebäudeversicherung Bern (GVB).
Since its inception in December 2019, Swiss Immo Lab has already invested in four startups namely Archilyse, RealXData, Mobbot and Insolight.
The two software firms Archilyse and RealXData looks to increase efficiency and support data-driven decision-making in the development and management of buildings and entire real estate portfolios.
Meanwhile, Mobbot aims to save time in construction by enabling mass production of concrete elements on-site. Lastly, Insolight’s produces solar panels where the profitability of photovoltaic installations is improved.
These first investments show the attractiveness and variety of the investment space.
With the fourth partner on board, Swiss Immo Lab will continue to invest in innovative startups who drive the much-needed digital transformation of the construction and real estate industry, two sectors that have been lagging behind so far.
