Nine Four Ventures is a vertically integrated, multi-stage real estate technology venture fund. It invests in companies impacting the people, processes, and ecosystems that interact with the built world, which transcends the real estate asset lifecycle and includes industries that sell to and through real estate such as insurance and maintenance.
The firm is backed by institutional owners and managers across real estate asset classes such as the Laramar Group, family offices, and globally-recognized firms such as Ace Hardware, State Farm Insurance and Valley National Bank to offer lifecycle capital, customers at scale, deep real estate operating expertise, and a safe laboratory environment for companies to test new markets, technologies, and strategies before launching publicly. Nine Four also has a unique investor network made up of home services executives that have built businesses such as ServiceMaster, Sears Home Improvement, Home Depot, Lowe’s, and some of the largest companies in roofing, pest control, and maintenance.
In 2018, we noticed the venture investing landscape lacked a pool of capital dedicated to the unique needs of PropTech startups. Many firms lacked the expertise needed to identify real estate technology and/or an ability to help scale it across the built world. Nine Four Ventures fills that void with experience and a collective approach to steward startups across the PropTech ecosystem.
