Detroit-based startup KODE Labs announced this week the closure of a $30 million Series B funding round. The round was led by Maverix Private Equity, with participation from TELUS Ventures and existing investor I Squared Capital.

KODE Labs is a pioneering startup developing autonomous smart building technology. Founded in 2017 by brothers Edi and Etrit Demaj, along with Gentrit Gojani, KODE’s mission is to enhance the intelligence, health and efficiency of buildings, ultimately enriching the experiences of those who inhabit, work in, visit and enjoy them. According to Etrit, buildings account for 39% of global carbon emissions, and the transformation of building operations critical for the environment. 

“Maverix's leadership precisely aligned with our vision. With the follow on from TELUS Ventures and continued support of I Squared Capital, we are in the best possible position to propel our mission forward and combat climate change by making all buildings more energy efficient while creating amazing experiences,” said Etrit.

Using a groundbreaking approach, KODE Lab's enterprise platform is a sophisticated solution that has redefined the landscape of smart buildings. Its technology seamlessly integrates data from building management systems, IoT devices and operational systems, turning it into a unified, cloud-based infrastructure.
