Creating impact at scale for the world's largest and most influential corporations.
Real world technology
Fifth Wall is the largest venture capital firm focused on technology for the global real estate industry. We invest in technology companies tackling some of the most pressing, real world problems, be it climate change, aging buildings and infrastructure, inaccessible housing markets, unreliable supply chains, or the future of work, to name a few.
Our platform is designed to technologize the spaces around us in order to optimize for a better, more sustainable future. Whether that means making buildings smarter, safer, more energy efficient, or all of the above, the outcome is the same – we fund cutting edge technology companies that are committed to future-proofing the spaces in which we live, work, and play.
Fifth Wall is backed by a global mix of more than 100 strategic limited partners (LPs) from more than 15 countries, including BNP Paribas Real Estate, British Land, CBRE, Cushman & Wakefield, Hilton, Host Hotels & Resorts, Kimco Realty Corporation, Lennar, Lowe's Home Improvement, Marriott International, MetLife Investment Management, MGM Resorts, Related Companies, Starwood Capital, Toll Brothers, and others.
Real estate corporations invest in Fifth Wall not only for financial returns, but also for the strategic value that access to game-changing technology companies provides. As a result, Fifth Wall has structured partnerships, distribution deals, and contracts that have rapidly accelerated the growth of our portfolio companies. By intermediating these two groups, our corporate LPs gain access to innovation and our portfolio companies gain access to distribution.
Fifth Wall has always invested at the intersection of real estate and innovation, and we believe that the next frontier for the industry is its collision with climate technology. Real estate is the largest contributor to climate change, consuming 40% of the world’s energy and producing 30%-40% of all greenhouse gas emissions. Yet historically, the industry has put very little capital towards technology solutions to mitigate its contributions.
A staggering $18 trillion investment is required over the next decade to get the real estate industry to net-zero. Just as with real estate technology, our relationships with the real estate industry are the distinguishing quality that compels us to champion this fight.
Decarbonizing real estate is one of the most important ethical imperatives and economic opportunities of our lifetime and Fifth Wall’s consortium model can play a dramatic role in convening the industry’s largest players to fund the climate technology solutions critical to its future.
