Czech smart building software provider Sharry has secured further investment. The largest amount of investment comes from J&T Ventures now. This allows Sharry to expand into 50 countries this year, co-founders plans.

J&T Ventures is investing several million euros in Czech-origin company Sharry. Its solutions for facility management and mobile access to offices are used by New York skyscrapers and top European projects. This year, the company plans to significantly strengthen its position in the US, expand into other markets and expand its team. 

Sharry allows employees and company visitors to conveniently enter the building or workplace by using their cell phones instead of plastic badges. However, this key in the form of a mobile app also allows them to access the parking garage, call the elevator, easily reserve hot-desking and parking spaces, report a building defect, get a discount from nearby businesses or receive a notification from the facility manager. 

The Czech software company Sharry was founded in 2016 by Josef Šachta, Jakub Řezníček, Michal Čeřovský and Vladimír Cibulka. In 2019, Sharry expanded into the US market. In the same year received a seed investment from Přemysl Rubes and his Presto Ventures fund, and now J&T Ventures, a fund founded by Adam Kočík and Martin Kešner, is acquiring a 10% equity stake. 

More than 100,000 people in 100 buildings in six countries use Sharry's software now, and tens of thousands more go through their visitor system at reception each month.
