Our Relationship with
Round Hill Capital

We have a strategic partnership with Round Hill Capital that gives us access to real estate professionals across multiple asset classes.

Furthermore, Round Hill Capital's strong pan-European footprint gives us fantastic access to a number of key players in the real estate ecosystem such as asset managers, operators and brokers.

  • What is PropTech?

    Property Technology (“PropTech”), our area of specialty, refers to the technological transformation underway in how people build, use, and allocate physical space.

  • What stages do you invest at?

    Round Hill Ventures invests in companies from Late Seed (post-revenue) to Series B with a defensible value proposition.

  • What are your investment themes?

    Round Hill Ventures has three clear investment themes for companies addressing three broad trends in the real estate industry:

    1. Changing market landscape
      • Fast-paced trends forcing industries to become agile and adapt.
      • Understanding increasingly complicated tenant requirements.
      • Investment Theme: Companies developing user-centric solutions to reflect market trends
    2. Opaque and outdated information
      • Access to data and feedback is critical to iterating products and services.
      • Information in the real estate industry is historically siloed and hard to access.
      • Investment Theme: Companies applying new insights to improve information quality and depth
    3. Optimization of space
      • Market requires that all physical assets are utilized effectively.
      • Increasing demand for existing and new uses of space.
      • Investment Theme: Companies generating operational efficiency to unlock value
  • How do you help portfolio companies?

    Round Hill Ventures is uniquely positioned in the market through its seamless integration with Round Hill Capital:

    • Deep real estate investment and asset management experience (over $6bn transacted and $2.0bn equity invested).
    • Extensive networks across real estate verticals and geographies (13 offices, over 180 real estate professionals).
    • Variety and depth of assets under management available as sandbox (deep expertise across residential, student housing, alternative accommodation, commercial real estate).
    • Stringent diligence processes and team with both venture and real estate track record (delivered 30%+ IRR over 15 years).
    • Access to specialist real estate investors, who can make strategic contributions to portfolio companies.
  • Are you a Corporate VC?

    Round Hill Ventures is not a Corporate VC. We offer a distinct approach by being Europe’s first VC to focus on capturing value created by innovation in the built environment whilst drawing on the exceptional network and strategic expertise of a globally established real estate private equity firm.
