Loric Ventures focuses on real estate companies offering "Space-as-a-Service" such as companies offering co-working, co-living, and short-term rentals. The firm organizes its real estate technology investments into three categories: tenant marketplaces (e.g. AirBnb, Homelike), asset light (e.g. Lyvly, Hostmaker), and asset heavy (e.g. WeWork, Domio, and Outsite). The firm analyses industry specific criteria and generic startup criteria such as the experience of the team, product advantages, consumer feedback, and if the company has the potential to reach 100 million in revenue.
