We're hands-on, collaborating with and supporting our founders as they work through challenges and opportunities.
The network effect
We're here to make the next, powerful introduction and help the right technologies get in front of the real estate companies that need them.
Specialists by nature
Our domain expertise is in real estate and venture capital, which gives us and our portfolio companies a competitive edge.
From day 1, we knew that we wanted Alate on our cap table. As a top PropTech fund, we knew that they could move the needle for us. The team leads with action and genuinely cares. If we could go back in time, we would make the decision to partner with Alate all over again.
