The research demonstrates the critical contribution that Startups are making to the introduction of innovation in the Smart Buildings & PropTech space.

Our analysis of venture capital and private equity funding has recorded the highest level of investment in startups over the last 4 years. Total capital invested in the global smart building space since 2012 amounts to $18.8 billion.

136 startups have been acquired in the last three years, which is the highest level of consolidation activity in the last nine years accounting for 72% of the total number of acquisitions over this period. Strategic buyers across the smart buildings landscape have continued their acquisitions strategy undeterred.

In the crowded marketplace of smart building startups, new entrants will need to differentiate themselves, either through their business model, partnerships or innovative technologies, in order to succeed. The report analyzes the future for startups, recent and forthcoming IPOs and SPACs, disappearing and inactive startups as well as a summary of closed startups.

Our definition of a Startup is ‘a private company formed no earlier than 2011 that is focused on the commercial and industrial buildings market, is not a subsidiary or an acquisition of a larger company and is often financed by venture capital or private equity funding.’

Starting at $2,250 USD, the report INCLUDES at no extra cost, a spreadsheet which lists all Startup acquisitions and investments in 2019 & 2020 AND a graphics pack with high resolution charts from the report.
