PropTech and real estate sales platform Nawy raised $5 million in its latest funding round, the company announcement Monday (February 14).
The Egypt-based online real estate startup said it would use the money to provide more services and capitalize on digital technologies.
Nawy, which has more than 200 employees, said it uses artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML) and algorithms to develop personalized recommendations for its clients. The concept, he says, is to offer homes that better match their preferences.

“…Technology is only scratching the surface when it comes to enabling and supporting the real estate industry in Egypt,” Nawy’s CEO said. Mostafa El Beltagy said in a statement.
With a database of properties listed online, potential buyers can filter their searches using a variety of criteria, including location, price, and square footage. This tool gives users autonomy over their real estate decisions, Nawy said.
When a customer is ready to make a purchase, the company’s brokers provide what they call a seamless transaction process using the expertise of seasoned agents and consultants at no additional cost.
