Where it began

Apadmi first met entrepreneur Alistair Malins in 2013, but in 2016, he approached our team in search of the ideal strategic technology partner for Second Estates.

Alistair already had an idea of what he wanted: a way of using data analytics to optimise investment potential within the property market – specifically, the lucrative luxury holiday rental sector.

But Alistair needed guidance with the technical side – enter Apadmi Ventures.

What we did

In the first instance, we provided Alistair with our expertise, scrutinising the technology already in mind and crafting the perfect, scalable solution for Second Estates.

We worked with him to execute an MVP (but there was no tech involved!) and proved its potential within the marketplace, via a multi-million pound property fund being deployed.

Our design and marketing teams then re-branded the company, and through our network, we assisted Alistair in securing £300k worth of investment for the business.

Where are they now?

We still provide Alistair with support at board level.

Following our multi-million pound property fund, we’re now beginning our plans for scaling the business, and embarking on our next funding round.
