Amsterdam-based Office App is an office management platform that allows tentants and employees to book events and desks, view and book available parking spaces, personal messaging, manage energy usage, and more. Office App is currently used in 10 countries throughout Europe with customers including LaSalle, UBS, BNP Paribas, Nuveen, HPE and Dell.
Founded in 2015, Office App has just announced a €4.3 million Series A funding round. The round was led by German VC Join Capital and Austria-based SIGNA Innovations, the Venture Capital Unit, along with UK-based specialist Proptech VC Pi Labs. The startup plans to use the funding to expand its data and analytics offering, cement its position in Europe as well as expanding its teams in Amsterdam, London, and North America.
Office App offers a large suite of functionalities and services available, ranging from room booking, intra-organisation community, access control, maintenance requests, on-demand catering, to local amenities. By combining all tenant focused services under one roof, Office App is aiming to improve and provide the best employee experience, whilst allowing landlords and office managers to access end-user data and insights to constantly improve the office environment.
“We’re at an incredibly exciting juncture in our business,” said Thijs van der Burgt, CEO and founder of Office App. “Having on-boarded some exceptional clients over the past 12 months, the team is ready to accelerate the growth of our business, scaling our European operations and entering the North American market for the first time. An office should be so much more than a mere desk. It should be a place that inspires you and provides a Happy Office.
“We’re delighted to bring such experienced investors onboard, with the wealth of experience offered by Signa and Join Capital and specialists such as Pi Labs providing deep market insight – we feel we have the team behind us to accelerate our growth.”
“Office App has created a truly impressive offering at just the right time, with real value creation for landlords and a dramatically enhanced office experience for tenants,” said Jan Borgstädt, the managing partner of JOIN. “The company has already proven its market value with an impressive MRR growth, and this makes us extremely proud to take part in supporting the team in their expansion throughout Europe and beyond. We’re thrilled that all of this is in line with our core activities in the industrial, enterprise and proptech spaces.”
