UAE-Based Construction & Real Estate Startup XPLOR Raises $3 Million in Seed Funding

The startup, which offers 3D tech, digital twin and master planning software, will look to use the funding to elevate customer experience.

UAE-based XPLOR has just secured $3 million in seed funding from Ayana Holding, taking it one step further in its goal of revolutionising the construction and real estate industries in MENA. 

Founded in 2015, the startup offers 3D tech, digital twin and master planning software for real estate digitisation covering marketing, sales, leasing, and facilities management. In essence, the software helps real estate developers reduce their operational expenditure, do away with human error and ultimately increase market share.

The startup now hopes to develop more features that enhance customers’ experience and efficiency, and are looking into blockchain to aid some of the challenges facing them.

"We are confident that the fresh funding will incentivize our pursuit of innovations and further enable us to create a meaningful impact on the regional real estate industry,” founder Can Turkan (pictured below centre) said.

Additionally, XPLOR has celebrated the success of the UAE’s Hope Probe Mars Mission in novel fashion. The startup has designed a masterplan on Mars,through which visitors on their website can take an interactive tour of ‘Burj Mars’, ‘Mars Marina’ and ‘Mars Opera’.
