Investment Manager

Who we are

Pi Labs is the most active proptech VC in Europe. We are a leader within our investment niche – predominantly focusing on pre-seed and seed stage investments in the proptech space in the UK and Europe, with the flexibility to invest internationally. Since our inception in 2014 we have backed 45 inspiring companies and we are growing that number as we speak. Our management team comes from 6 different nationalities and a variety of backgrounds and we highly value diverse perspectives.
We are now looking for a new investment manager to join our team and help us grow and to build on our existing track record.

What we believe

We believe in bold founders and ideas that will create a better world in which we live. We’re not afraid to back founders’ ground-breaking work at its inception, by providing funding, network and strategic support. Our vision is to invest, mentor and accelerate high-calibre proptech start-ups, particularly those with the passion and ability to build scalable businesses which will disrupt the property industry or make it far more efficient and transparent. While the commercial performance and inherent scalability of each venture is important, we also consider their capacity to address social problems facing the world today.
