2022 Venture Investors 50

The BuiltWorlds 2022 Venture Investors 50 is a list of the most active venture capital firms and strategic corporate funds investing in the built world today. Since 2017, BuiltWorlds has tracked venture deals in the construction and broader real estate ecosystem with a global purview.

This year’s list includes inventors that you may recognize from previous investor lists, but you'll see plenty of newcomers that have emerged in the built-worlds VC space more recently. The intent of this top investors list is to show the breadth of investors in this slow-to-adopt industry and the continued acceleration of innovative financing to develop real-estate tech ventures for years to come.

BuiltWorlds first Venture Investors list was released in 2018 and cataloged only 27 institutional investors. Last year's list, the 2021 Venture Investors 50, identified 151 deals from 368 investors netting ~$14.5B (nearly double the previous year’s activity). In this 2022 list, inclusive of investments over the past 24 months (from December 1st, 2020 to November 30th, 2022,) our research team tracked a total of 524 deals from 1334 unique investment groups.

Representation on this list puts your investment group in the 96th percentile of the private institutional investment community in the built world.

How Was This List Created?

This year’s list was derived by quantifying how active institutional investors have been over the last 24 months. The investment groups that constitute this list are in order beginning with the most active and have participated in the largest number of deals over the last two years in ventures that fall within the BuiltWorlds venture research scope. This list does not factor in criteria such as deal size, deal round, or being a lead investor. In instances where two groups have completed the same quantity of deals, the tiebreaker was awarded to the firm with more recent deal activity.

FifthWall

1. Fifth Wall

Fifth Wall is the largest venture investment firm in the real estate technology sector, with $3.2 billion in capital commitments from over 100 committed LPs, and has deployed more than $1.78B into BuiltWorlds' venture sphere in the past 2 years.

This built world-accelerating powerhouse began its early-stage investing journey in 2016 with a primary focus on “PropTech” – an increasingly ambiguous term with the rise of construction and infrastructure tech, but seems to now relate primarily to either residential real estate-focused innovation or commercial real estate tech.

Today, Fifth Wall’s flywheel of investments has expanded deep into the world of ConTech as the necessity of vertical integrations across the real estate sector becomes increasingly apparent with each new siloed solution that is implemented. Over 1/3rd of the Fifth Wall deals BuiltWorlds tracked were related to residential real estate, while construction tech represents a meaningful part of this pure-play built-world VC’s investment thesis. Infrastructure tech has been a growing theme within Fifth Wall’s strategy with many of these solutions being sustainably empowered.
