Founded by prominent global PropTech influencers James Dearsley and Eddie Holmes, Unissu has quickly become the essential destination for anyone interested in how technology is shaping the future of real estate.
Unissu CEO Eddie Holmes commented: “For many real estate companies who are seriously considering the adoption of technology to help them grow their businesses the key deterrents are often working out exactly what they need and subsequently finding a vendor that they can trust to meet those requirements. This is the primary reason that our procurement tool has quickly become firmly established as our key feature. In simple terms, at no cost to the user it takes the pain out of this process and enables property firms to find the best technology solutions, wherever they may be in the world. From the other side of the equation, Unissu is also a valuable tool for opening new markets and finding new customers for new and established PropTech suppliers around the world. Our client list already includes innovative real estate firms like Keppel Land, Aviva and Generali and we’ve been able to introduce hundreds of PropTech companies to early adopters of technology such as these.
This most recent round of investment gives us the firepower to further scale up this service, improve the accuracy and speed of our matching algorithm and continue to ensure that we connect the right buyers with the right sellers.”
Richard Croft, Unissu Director and Executive Chairman of M7 commented: “One of the key factors in the success we have had in building M7’s international investment management platform has been our adoption and development of technology. We are ardent believers in the potential that innovative solutions offer the real estate industry and Unissu’s platform is no exception. They are at the very heart of a global network which helps property firms around the world engage with the most suitable and trusted PropTech suppliers around in a simple and user friendly manner.
”Both I, and the impressive group of co-investors James and Eddie have brought together, believe that this tool will become an increasingly invaluable weapon in the armoury of any property company that wants to use technology to add value to its business.”
