Mapiq, the Netherlands-based leading workplace experience platform, announces the extension of its Series A financing round to €17 million. The €7 million extension is funded by Rinkelberg Capital, the London-based investment office of the TomTom founders, Energy-Innovation fund ENERGIIQ and one early/existing investor.
Mapiq was founded in 2013 with the goal of cutting down real estate costs and supporting sustainability goals. The COVID-19 pandemic accelerated hybrid working globally. Now, many organizations across all industries are embracing the opportunity to reinvent the way people work. A hybrid model helps organizations globally to potentially lowering costs, attracting and retaining talent, and strengthening organizational performance and culture.
Mapiq was founded by CEO Sander Schutte and CTO Jasper Schuurmans, and just one year after their start, Deloitte partnered with Mapiq for their office in Amsterdam; The Edge building was marked as the most sustainable office in the world by BREEAM, putting Mapiq at the forefront of the workplace experience industry. Today, Delft-based Mapiq is working together with global customers such as Microsoft, Booking.com, COTY, PwC, Danone, RioTinto, AkzoNobel, Heineken, KPMG, and others.
Sander Schutte, the CEO of Mapiq notes on the latest funding round: “It is a strong sign of commitment that our investors show such confidence in our continuous progress. Due to the increasing need for hybrid working models, any organization worldwide is becoming a potential Mapiq user. This Series A extension enables us to meet this growing demand, develop new products, and further expand our market leadership position internationally.”
Mapiq supports employees with tools to orchestrate their team office days and to optimize their scheduling through customized suggestions. This, in turn, provides organizations with high-accuracy data, allowing to manage and continuously improve the utilization of their office spaces. As a result, businesses can cut down on real estate costs and support sustainability goals by creating more energy-efficient workplaces.
As these hybrid working trends are still very much alive, and inherently workplace technology becomes indispensable, Mapiq is entering new regions and investing further in the expansion of its team.
Marc Slendebroek, CEO of Rinkelberg Capital is looking forward to supporting these aspirations. He stated: “Mapiq is a truly innovative and performance driven company showing exceptional entrepreneurship in these turbulent times.”
