Investing in Aryeo

Contrary HQ · May 10, 2021

The real estate industry is notoriously complex: the data attached to each property must flow through a vast network of buyers, agents, brokerages, lawyers, lenders, listing platforms, and more, just to make a single sale.

To simplify how everybody interacts with photography — the fundamental building block of real estate data — the team over at Aryeo has built an all-in-one tool for real estate photographers to run their business and for agents to manage their photos.

We met Branick, Matt, and Brendan when they were wrapping up school at Boston College.

While initially impressed with their clarity of thought, we were stunned to learn that the Aryeo team was already processing 1% of all US residential real estate photography from their college apartment HQ.

Laser-like focus and clear visions are rare, but few teams also have concrete results so early on.

Working with Branick, Matt, and Brendan has been nothing but an honor. That's why we're so excited to finally announce a pre-seed round led by Contrary and seed round led by our friends at Amplo and Hyperplane.
