LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, August 24, 2023/ -- Occuspace, the developer of easy-to-install and scalable occupancy management technology, today announced the successful closure of its recent seed funding round, securing a total of $3.6 million in investment. The funding round was led by Okapi Venture Capital and joined by Cove Fund, Shadow Ventures, and Hamilton Ventures. Occuspace’s innovative occupancy monitoring solution helps customers measure and optimize the use of their physical spaces to improve utilization, make informed operational decisions, reduce real estate costs, and enhance visitor experiences.

This investment reflects the confidence these leading technology and proptech investment firms have in Occuspace's cutting-edge occupancy monitoring solution and the company's potential to revolutionize the way organizations approach space utilization and management. Offering a cost-effective price range and precise foot traffic data, Occuspace allows owners and operators of all types of properties to get more granular space utilization data for a whole building or specific floors and even office neighborhoods, in addition to consumer-facing data applications.

“We are thrilled to back the Occuspace team and to help accelerate their efforts to transform the space utilization market. Occuspace’s highly accurate, frictionless, and low-cost solution explodes open the market possibilities, as the return on investment for real estate planners, managers, and retailers to manage and control their facilities like never before is extremely compelling and empowering,” said Jeff Bocan, partner at Okapi Venture Capital.

The company also plans to continue expanding into the corporate office, multifamily, travel, government, and retail verticals where its product-market fit has been established.

“Since the inception of the company our mission has been to bring web analytics to the physical world, and this recent investment round will help accelerate our business reach into various sectors looking for scalable solutions to optimize space utilization,” said Nic Halverson, co-founder and CEO of Occuspace. “We are thrilled to have the support of Okapi Venture Capital, Cove Fund, Shadow Ventures, and Hamilton Ventures, whose investment has helped us to realize our potential to address the evolving spatial needs of modern businesses.”

Occuspace's commitment to continuous technological advancement will be further fueled by this investment, enabling the company to develop and offer even more robust occupancy management and analytics solutions, such as daily visitor counts, dwell time, and new integrations into platforms that our customers are already using.

"In a time where real estate usage is undergoing a once in a lifetime change, owners and occupiers alike are perplexed on space utilization,” said Matt Ohlman, CTO and general partner of Shadow Ventures. “We are excited that Occuspace is able to provide the market with unprecedented data, analytics, and insights to drive informed decision making and completely change the way real estate decisions are made."
