Creating happier and healthier ‘smart’ buildings that more effectively meet the needs of their users is central to our Smart and Connected vision. Our pursuit of this vision has led us to some incredible innovators, and we’re proud to reveal our latest investment in Oriient, pioneers of high-performance indoor GPS. Joining us in the seed funding round of $4 million was F2 Capital.
With a mission to make the physical world searchable, Oriient provides enterprise-level businesses like malls, hospitals, universities and airports with the ability to allow their customers to navigate large areas and identify items with pin-point accuracy – all with just a mobile device. And what makes it most convenient, and the first of its kind, is that it requires no additional hardware, radio frequency, or even WiFi connection to empower consumers to find their way.
