Pi Labs, a proptech VC, launched its seventh pre-seed growth programme after searching for the world’s most promising proptech startups.
Pi Labs gives each company seed funding and mentorship, office space, collaboration and the opportunity to network with the wider proptech community, Pi Labs’ alumni, and investors during the four months.
Dominic Wilson, Managing Partner, Pi Labs, said, “Each year I’m impressed by the diversity of applications – this year has seen a huge increase. With hundreds of applications, it’s an incredibly difficult task to narrow down the applications to just six.”
This year’s cohort includes: CRIBZ: helping real estate developers automate and optimise their sales process. The platform sends the right message, to the right buyer, at the right time by using artificial intelligence (AI) and conversational design to guide buyers through each step of the real estate process.
GroupLadder: empowering friends to buy homes together. Groups typically consist of friends who have been in a job for a year, have income coverage to pay the mortgage, but individually don’t have the capital for a deposit.
RenterBuyer: a rent-to-buy solution: an affordable fraction upfront; rent on the rest, purchasing more equity monthly. Like the Government Help to Buy, without the limitations.
