Smart-buildings startup Lone Rooftop secures seed investment

Amsterdam-based start-up Lone Rooftop secured a 500k seed investment led by Dutch tech fund Mamadoo Ventures and backed by co-founder Reinoud Elhorst.

The software company, founded in 2014, hopes to further develop their technique with the money and expand the team.

Lone Rooftop makes buildings ‘smarter’ with their so-called position intelligence engine. Wi-Fi signals and algorithms are used to measure the amount of people in a certain location within the building, enhancing data-driven facility management, security and energy management among other possibilities.


The University of Wageningen is among the first organisations using the technology, developed and founded by former Hyves-colleagues Marcel Lamers, Jeroen Coumans and Reinoud Elhorst.

“The necessity to make buildings smarter is huge”, says Hans Snel of Mamadoo Ventures in a statement (Dutch). “Lone Rooftop offers many possibilities to do so.”
