Leading in real estate technology | Growth market in spite of current global crisis

Software company KATE Innovations, developer of a real estate process digitalization platform, has received an investment from BORON to expand its product portfolio and international expansion into Belgium, Germany, Russia and the United Kingdom.

KATE Platform: link between advisors, banks and property owners
In 2016, Rutger Janssen, Erik Schlooz and Roderik Gerritsma created the foundation for the current KATE Platform out of frustration of commercial real estate’s inefficient valuation process. The platform offers a link between advisors, banks and property owners and organizes the entire valuation process from A to Z. Currently, companies such as Cushman & Wakefield and Savills use the software. Erik Schlooz, CEO and co-founder of KATE: ‘Stepping away from personal opinions to streamlining the processes digitally based on data is a change of thinking for many of our customers. Our technology makes it concrete, feasible and usable. In addition, we continue to invest in innovative solutions to maintain our leading position in the real estate market.’


Leading role in the real estate market

BORON is the investment company of the J.A. Fentener van Vlissingen family and actively invests in real estate in Europe and the United States. The clear vision on the future of the real estate market and the balanced team of entrepreneurs were reasons for BORON to invest in KATE. Wilbert Broekman, Managing Director BORON: ‘We are impressed by the advantage that KATE has built up in real estate technology in a short time. KATE is a pioneer in the real estate market and has successfully transformed its vision in an entrepreneurial way into solutions that clients use on a daily basis. In addition to the capital injection for the development of new products, we look forward to supporting KATE with knowledge and experience in realizing its international ambitions. ”
