Elevator Heroes wins strategic partner
The construction company Goldbeck invests in the Berlin-based start-up. Aufzugshelden wants to reduce repair and maintenance costs for elevators.
Bielefeld-based construction and real estate company Goldbeck has invested in proptech start-up Aufzugshelden. Goldbeck is investing a seven-figure sum and will receive ten percent of the shares, reports Wirtschaftswoche. "We are very happy about the financing round and the trust," Simon Vestner, founder and CEO of Aufzugshelden, said in a statement. "Already today, our technology is unique. This partnership will enable us to realize our vision even faster." The goal of the cooperation, he said, is to build Aufzughelden into the leading solution for digital elevator and building management and to manage real estate more sustainably.
Elevatorhelden uses its software to collect data directly at the control unit of elevators. "This increases the availability of your elevator, reduces its costs and, quite incidentally, makes the building "digitally ready"," writes Aufzugshelden on its website. The Berlin-based start-up promises a 15 percent reduction in maintenance costs.
"The cooperation with Aufzughelden gives us access to technological innovations that are highly relevant for the building operation of the future," says Fabian Lenz, Head of Innovation at Goldbeck. "As a result, we can not only increase comfort for the users of our buildings, but also increase efficiency and thus save resources."
Elevator Heroes is now looking to expand and extend its offering. In the long term, the start-up wants to link elevator data with other building data to reduce maintenance and repair costs in the long term.
