Infogrid, a London, UK-based startup that uses AI to collect and analyze data on things like air quality, occupancy, and energy consumption, raised $90 million in a Series B funding round led by Northzone.
The funds will be used for product development, strategic hires, and customer acquisition. Infogrid's platform gathers and analyzes data from IoT sensors to help property managers optimize the performance of their buildings.
William Cowell de Gruchy, Infogrid’s CEO, says. “Now was the time to raise the capital and use it to drive our expansion,” De Gruchy said. “We are coming off of 5x growth last year and the market is strongly calling for our solutions … We opted for equity because alongside capital, we want strategic partners to help us scale to the next level and we have both VCs and clients and partners investing. This brings value far greater than even the cash.”
Infogrid’s platform, powered by AI, gathers and analyzes data from Internet of Things (IoT) sensors to help property managers and owners optimize the performance of their various buildings—at least in theory.
The startup's AI-powered technology can measure domains such as air quality, cleaning needs, energy usage, and CO2 levels.
