Today proptech company Izix raised €3 million in equity to advance its space management solution for office parking lots and mobility.
Created in 2021, Izix has developed a solution that optimises office building parking lots, accelerating the transition to soft mobility and flex offices.
It reinvents the use of parking lots to create high value-added spaces that pool costs, make offices more flexible and attractive, and support the ESG ambitions of companies and landlords.
The software has been designed to make everyday life easier for all parking lot stakeholders — the property owner, the manager, the tenant and the employee — with an app that improves the planning, allocation and sharing of parking lots.
The company's platform is active in France, Belgium, Luxembourg and Spain.
"Our data shows that 30 percent of traffic and 40 percent of vehicle emissions in cities are linked to parking searches. Almost half of all home/work car journeys are made automatically, rather than out of need.
A company travel plan solution and the tools offered by our solution will drastically impact this type of problem" declares Rémi Laurent, CRO & Director France.
"We need to make use of empty spaces, and support new uses linked to increased telecommuting, electrification and soft mobility.
Izix offers flexible parking management, enabling the parking policy to be adapted to the needs of the company, the flex office and changes in mobility."
According to Dorian de Broqueville, CEO and co-founder of Izix:
"Today, time to market is no longer an issue.
With a strong team and solid customer references, our growth ambitions go hand in hand with a mature market waiting for this type of solution.
Like us, our investors are convinced of the need to support the transition to more sustainable cities and travel, and to new hybrid modes of work."
The equity funding was raised from Noia Capital, La Région Bruxelloise and Franco-Belgian business angels.
Already present in 150 buildings in France, Belgium, Luxembourg and Spain, the company has announced a target of 500 buildings by the end of 2025, 50 percent of them in France.
It further aims to conquer over half of the French market, i.e. 2,500 buildings, and achieve profitability by 2025.
