The Belgian scale-up AproPLAN, a 2017 Tech Startup Day Awards' nominee, nails a €5M investment.

Launched in 2012, AproPLAN is a construction app that helps you build faster and lets you keep track of your progress and collaborate with your team. Running on the freemium business model, the scale-up offers a unified space for communication, allowing all sides to share documents, notes, messages and tasks easily. Its powerful capabilities allow you to receive information via the PC, Mac, iPhone and iPad construction apps.

The scale-up has been already serving largest companies in the construction sector, such as BAM, Besix and CFE. Moreover, the recent partnership with the ADEB-VBA has opened doors to new opportunities and customers. AproPLAN does not hide its ambitions for growth and gears up expansion starting with the neighboring countries.

The new funding will be allocated in enchancing marketing and sales

The successfully-closed capital round was led by Fortino Capital and existing investors, including Inventures, Matexi and the co-founders of Showpad, Pieterjan Bouten, Louis Jonckheere and Peter Minne.
