Proptech from Hamburg receives six million euros
Former employees of Engel und Völkers founded Evernest in 2019, and now they have closed a successful seed funding round and raised six million euros.
Proptech Evernest has raised six million euros in its seed round. Investors are existing investor Project A Ventures, and venture capitalists APIC from Austria and FJ Labs from the US are also on board.
"With the new capital, we will expand across Germany and further develop our industry-leading technology platform," says Christian Evers, who founded Evernest together with Luisa Haxel in 2019. Both were previously responsible for digital strategy at luxury broker Engel und Völkers, Evers was also on the board.
The two have remained true to the digitalization of the real estate industry, and with Evernest they also want to simplify the process of buying and selling real estate, primarily with the help of digital solutions: "Data and digital processes are changing industries, but real estate services are stuck in the stone age. Today's buyers and sellers don't want to use slow, antiquated and inefficient processes when they are involved in high-value real estate transactions," says Evers. The startup's service platform makes it easier for agents to place their properties on the market. Customers are to be reached personally and efficiently and connected with local brokers. So far, the platform is only available for Hamburg, but other cities are to follow with the current funding.
The concept of the Hamburg-based proptech has also convinced investors: "Evernest has a recipe for success that will set new standards for the European premium home segment," says General Partner of Project A Ventures Anton Waitz. "We can't think of a better team to transform the European residential real estate market."
