Share:

Dublin, Feb. 25, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "StartUps and their Impact on Smart Buildings 2021" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

This Report is a New 2021 Definitive Resource for Evaluating Startup Companies in the Smart Building & PropTech Space.

The publisher has identified 665 private companies founded between 2011 and 2020 in the smart buildings sector. This number has increased 38% since the 2nd edition of this report published two years ago. There was no slowdown in the number of Startups receiving investment last year despite the COVID-19 global pandemic and ensuing recession.

The definition of a Startup is 'a private company formed no earlier than 2011 that is focused on the commercial and industrial buildings market, is not a subsidiary or an acquisition of a larger company and is often financed by venture capital or private equity funding.'

The report includes at no extra cost, a spreadsheet which lists all Startup acquisitions and investments in 2019 & 2020 AND a graphics pack with high resolution charts from the report.
