April 20, 2015, New Orleans (Louisiana), Oulu (Finland) – For immediate release
Cubicasa, a Finnish 3D Technology, and Design company announce the closure of seed investment round with Butterfly Ventures.
“Properties are one of the most valuable assets sold on a daily basis. Each time a property is sold there’s a need for a floor plan along with the other materials. However, the quality of existing materials varies a lot, and quite often they’re not even available in digital form. CubiCasa makes it super easy for anyone to transfer their floor plans into appealing high-quality form cost-efficiently. On top of that, they automatically create an approximate 3D model based on the floor plan.“ Says Mr. Juho Risku, Co-Founder and Partner, Butterfly Ventures.
About the investment:
Butterfly Ventures invested in CubiCasa because of the company’s ability to cumulate floor plan data and 3D models extremely efficiently, while making money in the process. This provides protection for the business, and enables numerous business models, each with a multi-billion dollar market opportunity. Furthermore, the founding team has a strong entrepreneurial background with plenty of startup experience and established connections to the North American market.
Cubicasa is witnessing phenomenal sales growth, more than doubling incoming orders in the past four months.
“We’ve grown from 1000 digital floor plans in December, to more than 2000 customer deliveries in April 2015. Even our long-term growth looks to be steady 10% or above. With the new, innovative products coming out of our R&D labs, we plan to gain a serious foothold of the North American market during 2015”, says Mr. Harri Pesola, CEO.
