Why we invested

Home renovation is a dream for many, but often, the process turns out to be a nightmare. Today, the market lacks transparency and trust, which leaves 50% of homeowners dissatisfied with the result and the cost. Although renovations often represent a significant financial cost, homeowners are left in the dark in terms of budgeting, timing and quality. Only in France, the renovation market is worth €40B, but it is hugely fragmented with many small players being unable to negotiate discounts with their providers. Hemea tackles this market through its SaaS enabled platform, which connects homeowners wishing to renovate their homes, with carefully selected architects and qualified local contractors. The company has a winning strategy due to its customer oriented focus, where respect for the budget and the timing, as well as transparency in prices are at the core of the business. On top of this, the company generates immense value for contractors, as the service delivers high demand and seamless administrative tools, streamlining their work.
