Belgian Proptech startup raises €2.3 million, looks to global market

By Editor 0 Comments NEWS, Regional News

Proptech startup SweepBright has ended an additional funding wrong at  €2.3 million. This Series A round puts the Antwerp-based company in a ready position to take on the proptech sector on an international scale. Leading this round were new investors like Cennini Holdings, QuaeroQ, along with a number of other private investors.

In addition, Volta Ventures, Pieterjan Bouten and Louis Jonckheere from Showpad and Jeroen Lemaire from In The Pocket, who already invested a collective €1.5 million in SweepBright in 2017, also reaffirmed their trust via the Series A financing.

Founded in 2016, SweepBright created a proptech solution which enables real estate agents to create, distribute and follow-up on their listings via their smartphone, with considerably greater speed and convenience.

All that via a centralized digital platform that also enables seamless integration with other apps. And because real estate agents no longer have to manually input their property listings, they gain up to 70% time which can be allocated to the more valuable client contacts and improved service, resulting in increased sales figures.

SweepBright CEO Raphael Bochner commented: “The future belongs to real estate agencies who are able to make the shift to increased productivity, a better customer experience and more robust digital marketing. This trend is already very visible in countries such as the US. But even in Belgium, there are several agencies – including a few newcomers – who have high ambitions with this approach. The biggest achievements are booked by real estate agencies that go beyond mere technological gimmicks and make a radical break with the traditional ways of working.”
