WeMaintain: we rise by lifting others.
A startup in lift maintenance…not very exciting? In fact, yes it is!
The market (35 billion USD, a profit margin of more than 40%, 4 historical actors) and the current level of service (a lack of reactivity and transparency, overworked mechanics) leaves space for a new model. The team is at the beginning of an adventure which will see them become a major actor in European Proptech.
Their model is revaluing the mechanics’ work, adding a lot of new technology, and allowing their clients to obtain a quality service.
They provide the mechanic with a mobile app which allows them to work autonomously and be directly in contact with the client, and allows the client to stay up to date on all work done on their lifts.
Created in 2017, WeMaintain has already raised 8.8M€ (with Idinvest Partners and Raise Ventures). Their solution has been adopted by co-ownership associations and big accounts (Groupama, Allianz, AG2R- LA MONDIALE…) on numerous office buildings.
The three founders, Jade, Tristan and Benoit, started their careers abroad and have returned to France to seize this opportunity. Today, they are accompanied by a diverse team of people (devs, sales, ops, lift experts, old corporate bosses), as they know it is variety that creates a high performing team.
There is not ONE good profile for WeMaintain, but they have three values which are non-negotiable. If you do not share them, then this is not the company for you:
- CARE (consideration for others)
- GRIT (ready to go that extra mile, determination)
- UNIQUENESS (be yourself and bring your own unique traits to the company)
At WeMaintain, they are a close-knit team, without being a startup «à la cool». No babyfoot, no pingpong and no aperos every Thursday… They get on without forcing it.
Their slogan: we rise by lifting others!
