CIM, a Sydney, NSW, Australia-based property operations software solution that enables teams to work more collaboratively and accelerates the journey to net zero emissions, announced that it raised AU$10 million in Series A funding.
The round was led by Five V Capital alongside Carthona Capital and included seasoned property executives such as Mark Steinert, former CEO of Stockland.
The new capital will be used to expand CIM internationally into Asia and North America and build out the team, with a doubling of headcount expected in the next 12 months.
David Walsh, Founder, and CEO, said, “The built environment accounts for approximately 40% of all carbon emissions globally, and our goal is to help the sector reduce more than one gigatonne of emissions. I’m excited to initiate the next stage of our growth by expanding into Asia and North America and getting closer to our vision of positively impacting the daily lives of the two million facilities managers currently managing buildings globally.”
CIM recently won the Telstra Business Awards (NSW) for embracing innovation and the sustainability project of the year at the Analytics and AI Awards. It is also listed in the Australian Financial Review’s Fast 100 growth companies and the Financial Times Asia-Pacific High-Growth Companies.
