Will Cowell de Gruchy is the CEO and Founder of Infogrid, a company redefining the building and facilities management industry.
Founded in 2018, Infogrid combines the world’s smartest IoT sensors with an AI-powered platform to help turbocharge facilities managers and real estate portfolio owners’ operations. This data-driven approach is already delivering massive benefits in cost savings and improved compliance.
Prior to this, Will attended Oxford University and had a varied career – from Finance, through Cage Fighter in Thailand to Tank Commander in the British Army.
His ‘Why’, though, has never changed: the preservation of the natural world (stopping extinctions, deforestation, ocean bound plastics etc) is what drove him to become an entrepreneur, having seen the influence successful entrepreneurs could have on the global stage.
Most recently Infogrid closed a $15.5m Series A in December 2020 following enormous growth last year, including rapid expansion in the US.
The funding will be used to accelerate Infogrid’s growth that has already revolutionized facilities management for the world’s largest FM providers, many S&P 500 and FTSE 100 companies, including global banks, supermarkets, restaurant chains, and the NHS.
Crucially, the funding will help Infogrid achieve its mission to address the world’s climate crisis by enabling businesses to reduce the environmental and social cost of their buildings while simultaneously benefitting their bottom line and asset values.
