Khanna's perspective: Navigating the complex web of real estate factors

Real estate prices have consistently increased for many years, but things have changed. The reasons for this change could be climate change and the subsequent rise in insurance costs, people moving away from specific areas, and a few other factors. Khanna mentioned that they analyze these intricate relationships to provide better guidance on where to invest and where not.

In the first half of 2024, the startup intends to secure a Series A funding round. This funding will be utilized to develop a global resilience index, leverage data and other exclusive geospatial datasets, and expand the platform to public investors.
