Goldacre RElab programme ready to roll
Goldacre, an investor in real estate technology businesses, has announced the six startups selected for its inaugural RElab accelerator programme.
This will last for 12 weeks and is being run in collaboration with corporate innovation specialist and early-stage investor, L Marks. Industry partners include Capreon, JCA, Knight Frank, Lee Baron, LiFE Ventures, Lockton, Stuart and Savills.
Almost 200 applications were received from around the world. Those that made it in to the 2018/19 cohort as follows:
Limitless Insight: Northern Irish venture that provides a location intelligence platform combining customer and business insights to deliver location-based offers, live in the physical store. Limitless also delivers personalised relevant offers through its recommendation engine, providing real-time Google and Amazon analytics for physical spaces.
ShapeDo: Israeli-based firm that provides design change management software for construction projects. ShapeDo allows teams to review changes in real-time and leverages controls and communications to eliminate unmanaged change, increase profits and avoid disputes.
Spaceti: Czech-founded PropTech firm that provides an end-to-end solution to enhance the satisfaction, productivity and well-being of people in buildings. Using sensors, data analytics and mobile user interfaces, Spaceti delivers solutions to improve the bottom line for organisations.
SwiftGo: based in the US, SwiftGo has developed a platform that allows bricks and mortar retail stores to eliminate check-out lines and provides its customers with a swift and personalised in-store shopping experience, whilst simultaneously addressing shrinkage. This, in turn, enables retailers to understand their customers’ individual shopping habits in real-time.
Aitonomi-TeleRetail: co-located between Switzerland, Germany and the US, Aitonomi-TeleRetail’s AutoPilot Software ‘Aito’ autonomously drives vehicles of almost any size, offering numerous applications in logistics and industrial contexts.

Fionnuala Hogan, Managing Director, Goldacre, and Head of RElab, says: ‘We are proud and excited to announce such a talented cohort for our inaugural lab. We and our partners cannot wait to start working with each of them, as they focus on key issues for innovation in the real estate world. In addition, we look forward to creating an ecosystem of innovation conversations including the startups and RElab’s industry partners.”
