REdimension Capital raised R200 million to fund SA’s property technology start-ups

Investment firm REdimension Capital recently made an exciting announcement about its inaugural fund, the REdimension Real Estate Technology and Sustainability Fund. This fund is dedicated to investing in early-stage technology companies that are revolutionizing the property development and management industry. With the goal of delivering both investment and operating returns, this fund has already achieved its first-close target by securing commitments of over R200-million from founding investors such as the Investec Property Fund, Growthpoint Properties, and Rand Merchant Bank.


The strategic support from these three investors is tremendously valuable, as they possess over 650 properties across different sectors that are directly under their management. This impressive portfolio represents a staggering 11 million square meters of gross lettable space, with an estimated valuation of around R235-billion. It is clear that these founding investors not only provide financial backing but also offer a wealth of experience and expertise in the real estate industry.

In addition to the founding investors, the REdimension fund has also garnered investment from other notable players like Liberty Two Degrees, Liberty Group, and Sphere Holdings. This diverse group of investors further enhances the fund’s potential for success. With such strong backing from industry leaders and experts, it is no surprise that the fund has already received significant interest from several co-investment partners.

The REdimension fund takes a thematic approach to investment, recognizing the value of solutions that operate at the convergence of real estate and technology. By focusing on areas that provide clear value propositions and address existing challenges in the industry, the fund aims to support and nurture companies that develop high-impact solutions. This includes technologies that improve the overall user experience with assets, streamline management processes, and facilitate better decision-making.

The fund’s emphasis on prop-tech innovations highlights the growing demand in the real estate industry for advancements that will ultimately enhance efficiency, sustainability, and profitability. With the rapid advancement of technology, it is crucial for the property development and management sector to embrace these changes and leverage the opportunities they present.

The REdimension Real Estate Technology and Sustainability Fund is off to an impressive start, successfully securing over R200-million in commitments for its first close. With strong support from renowned investors and a robust thematic approach to investment, this fund is well-positioned to make a significant impact in the prop-tech industry. We can anticipate further growth and additional commitments before January, underscoring the excitement and potential surrounding this venture.
