PropTech1 Ventures finds new Venture Partner in Dr. Peter Staub, CEO and founder of Swiss real estate consultancy pom+, and opens office in Switzerland

Berlin, 16 January 2019 – PropTech1 Ventures, Germany's first venture capital fund focusing on European PropTech startups, welcomes Dr. Peter Staub as its second venture partner and further investor in Switzerland.

Peter Staub is CEO and founder of pom+, the leading Swiss consulting firm that advises real estate companies on digitization strategy and technology deployment. Peter Staub is regarded as one of the most active experts in the Swiss PropTech segment and organizes the annual Digital Real Estate conference, holds the "Digital Real Estate" chair at the Zurich University of Economics (HWZ), is responsible for the LAB100 innovation laboratory, and is an active PropTech business angel.

Following the recent investment in the Swiss big data PropTech Archilyse and the inclusion of Dr. Beat Schwab, former Head Global Real Estate of Credit Suisse and former CEO of Wincasa, as Venture Partner and investor, the involvement of Peter Staub is now the third step for PropTech1 towards establishing a permanent presence in the Swiss market, which is attractive and comparatively mature in regard to PropTech innovations. In the context of this cooperation, PropTech1 will also open an office in Zurich in the near future.

Peter Staub comments on his entry into PropTech1, "Until recently, there was virtually no professional venture fund in DACH with an exclusive focus on PropTechs. PropTech1 has changed that and, what pleases me most, regards the Swiss PropTech as very attractive. Accordingly, I am delighted to actively contribute to the further success and in particular to expand and support the Swiss portfolio.” 

Nikolas Samios, Managing Partner of PropTech1 Ventures, adds, "For many years, Peter Staub has been one of the most renowned bridgeheads between the established real estate world and innovative start-ups, not only in Switzerland. We couldn't wish for a better addition to our team in combination with our first Swiss Venture Partner Beat Schwab.”
