Why Floored is Awesome, and Not Just for the Real Estate Industry

The other day, I looked at some real estate on behalf of one of my portfolio companies.

The owner sent me this...




Maybe I just don't have enough imagination or lack the requisite architecture degree.  At least it's better than showing an actual picture of what the office looks like now, after the last tenant trashed the place on their way out.  Or, if they didn't trash it, they subdivided it for a colony of bees and painted it what can best be described as neon beige.  

This is what Floored does, with a turnaround time of just a few hours... 

If you don't understand the value of that to anyone who sells space, you probably also read the directions on toothpaste. 

But it's not just selling space--it's what goes inside the space, too.  Floored's technology isn't just going to help you imagine your new office or new home, but walk through and buy all the furniture, paint, flooring, etc that goes into it.

That's exciting--and I'm glad RRE and Greycroft felt the same way.  They just led a $5m+ seed round in the company.   It's a nice bump for my seed portfolio (I invested about a year ago) and a big win for the company, which is already on a serious revenue ramp.

Congrats Team Floored!
