Startup in Residence The Hague 4.0 – Meet selected startup – Roundsense

Startup in Residence The Hague 4.0 is in full swing. On September 5th, seven startups were selected for the programme and are currently working on their solution with the City of The Hague. The past weeks we have introduced every startup participating in the programme. Today, we’d like to introduce “RoundSense”, working on the challenge “3D scans for building plans”.

Adrian Alexe and Jeroen Lichtenauer, founders of RoundSense, have developed a solution for the digitization and automation of the real estate media production process, using their own hardware and software. Accurate and efficient building mapping is a crucial part of that.

The demand for a complete package of real estate media products has grown enormously in recent years. Adrian and Jeroen noticed, however, that these products are still produced separately and sometimes in age-old, labor-intensive and error-prone manners. They believed that, with current developments in technology, it should now be possible to do better.

“Our passion is to give you a clear and complete understanding of all the available properties before your first visit. By limiting human work as much as possible to the most creative aspects, with the resulting cost savings, a complete media package can be offered for many more properties in the real estate market.”

In addition to winning the ‘3D scans for building plans’ challenge in the Startup in Residence programme, RoundSense has now also developed working prototypes of their hardware and software. This is intended for the digital measurement of homes and automatic control of DSLR cameras. The team is currently expanding and they are in the process of getting their first customers on board. Read more about RoundSense in the magazine Baaz.

“We think it is great that the municipality of The Hague is progressive and constantly looking for innovative solutions to make both the lives of the 500,000+ residents and the work of the 5000+ employees within the municipality easier, more efficient and pleasant. You certainly do not see that everywhere. Despite the initial side step from our main market (real estate offices), this has motivated us to contribute to these efforts and we are happy to help various parties within and around the municipality innovate by using our technology.”

Startup in Residence, an initiative powered by ImpactCity, is a new way of connecting the City of The Hague and startups. Through this programme, the municipality of The Hague is looking for and invests in startups with innovative ideas that tackle challenges in the city. The programme supports startups in co-creating and developing their prototypes with civil servants and exploring future business models together. 

Do you want to build your business and make an impact in the city with your solution? 19 challenges of the new programma can be found on: www.startupinresidence.com/intergov. Startups can sign up until January 17th 2020.
