BrightLET, a cloud based lettings and property management platform which connects landlords directly with tenants in the UK has expanded into the commercial property market.
The Birmingham-based startup was one of 12 companies selected by Innovation Birmingham Campus’ Serendip Smart City Incubator, a new offering aimed at accelerating the growth of digital start-ups by co-locating them with large corporate partners.
brightLET provides a 360-degree service which enables users to advertise, find a property, communicate and manage tenancies online without using a third party.
The new commercial property solution will provide multi user access, enabling landlords to streamline their service, reduce management costs and keep all relevant tenancy information in one secure, online location.
brightLET chief executive officer Shana Owen says she is really pleased the company's development given its early stage of development.
“The team have worked extremely hard on developing new features to ensure our offering remains unique and innovative," Owen says.
“This is only the beginning, our strategic vision will come to fruition over the next 18 months and I look forward to watching our team continue to go from strength-to-strength.”
Based at the Campus’ new 42,149 sq ft iCentrum building, start-ups can sign up to one of four sector-specific ‘quarters’; Digital Health, Intelligent Mobility, Internet of Things and Barclays Eagle Labs, which are being delivered by Innovation Birmingham in collaboration with the West Midlands Academic Health Science Network, Centro, the Transport Systems Catapult, RWE npower and Barclays.
Applications for the second cohort of start-ups are now open.
