Switch Automation Increases New York Presence to Tackle the World's Most Pressing Challenges
DENVER, CO, Nov. 11, 2019 – Switch Automation, a Denver-based PropTech software-as-a-service (SAAS) company, launches new Switch Dx³ (Digital Data Discovery) product and increases New York presence through participation in accelerator programs and premier real estate PropTech events.
PRODUCT LAUNCH AT NEW YORK REAL ESTATE TECH WEEK
Switch launched their Switch Dx³ (Digital Data Discovery) product at MIPIM PropTech NYC 2019. Switch Dx³ connects building systems, such as building management systems (BMS), HVAC, lighting, metering, cameras and access control, via the Switch IoT Gateway to assess data connectivity, network integrity and overall readiness for a smart building program. For the first time ever, this gives real estate teams an immediate overview of building network performance.
METAPROP ACCELERATOR PROGRAM
Switch Automation is the anchor company in the 2019/2020 MetaProp Accelerator program, following a year of explosive growth fueled by their pioneering approach to digital facilities management.
The MetaProp Accelerator is a 22-week program run in partnership with Columbia University that helps PropTech companies accelerate market penetration. MetaProp’s team of strategic investors focuses exclusively on real estate technology. Collectively, they have invested in 50+ companies across the full real estate value chain that have raised $2B+ and employ 1,500+ people globally.
“We’re excited to share the strategies that helped us attract multiple Fortune 100 clients and collaborate with the next generation of PropTech startups to expand the potential of our ecosystem,” said Switch CEO, Deb Noller.
Switch’s participation in the MetaProp Accelerator program is just one initiative centered around New York City’s expansive real estate industry, where Switch integrates with historic and brand new flagship buildings, several involving NYSERDA-funded projects.
After a rigorous selection process involving hundreds of world-class companies, Switch Automation was chosen to join 14 other growth-stage ventures at the 2019 Unreasonable Impact Americas program. For twelve intensive days this past October, Switch CEO Deb Noller joined other entrepreneurs from across North America at the 10th Unreasonable Impact program to accelerate the growth of their companies.
Unreasonable Impact is an innovative partnership between Barclays and Unreasonable Group that supports high-growth ventures tackling some of the world’s most pressing social and environmental challenges to scale and create thousands of new jobs. Each program connects the entrepreneurs to a global community of world-class mentors and industry specialists, including experts from across Barclays.
Daniel Epstein, Founder and CEO of Unreasonable Group, said: “Unreasonable Impact represents one of the fastest-growing networks of impact ventures in the world, demonstrating that it’s possible to do well and good at the same time. We are humbled to welcome Switch Automation into this global community, and we are privileged to continue to support the growth of over 100 ventures to date.”
Cumulatively, the fifteen ventures have generated more than USD $245 million in revenue and raised USD $410 million in funding. To date, the ventures that comprise the Unreasonable Impact community have positively impacted more than 187 million people, reduced greenhouse gas emissions by 28.8 million tons, and generated more than 20,000 net new jobs.
