About Prophia

Commercial Real Estate (“CRE”) is one of the world’s largest asset classes plagued with poor quality data and archaic tools. And because the valuable private building data is trapped in a complex and rapidly evolving IT ecosystem, even the most sophisticated owners/operators and creditors struggle to use data to their competitive advantage.

Founded in 2018, Prophia is the only company that has designed and built a machine learning driven data management platform that helps commercial real estate organizations drive the financial performance of their assets. We are a Series A stage company, having raised over $15m of venture capital to date to deliver trusted data to our customers, providing them with more time, insights, and risk management. Currently, we are operating as a distributed team, with most employees based in the San Francisco Bay Area and Seattle, with additional employees located in the Midwest and East Coast.
