About Ukio

Ranked as one of the most promising Spanish startups of 2022, Ukio is a hyper-growth proptech started in 2020 by founders with deep experience in travel and technology.

Our mission is to empower individuals to live where they want, when they want. We do this by disrupting the traditional residential real estate market and providing turn-key and design-forward residential apartments for monthly stays powered by tech.

Having raised €10M in capital last year from Europe’s leading VC firms, we are now at 120 employees across four markets and have experienced a 12x growth in revenue in the last year alone surpassing a €10M annual run rate.

We are in the process of closing our series A round and in the next 12-18 months, we will continue rapidly expanding into multiple markets across Europe and building out a world class executive team to help the business reach new heights!
