And at the moment, as the company announces their latest funding round of $125M at a $1B+ valuation, I’m nonetheless thrilled to again Density as they’re rising massively with clients like Uber, Shopify, Delta, and Cisco, amongst many others. Fairly merely, the info that Density offers — knowledge that hasn’t been obtainable till now — is altering the best way corporations, actual property leaders and staff take into consideration and measure these main property.

I’m excited to share a brief dialog with Andrew about at the moment’s information and the place the corporate goes, which you’ll see here:

We cowl:

  • How the info Density offers could make measurable affect on local weather change (since 39% of all emissions come from buildings)
  • The vary of use instances for Density, now and sooner or later, from rethinking work patters to short-term rental monitoring to metropolis catastrophe planning
