Innovation Birmingham Campus-based digital lettings agent, brightLET, has expanded into the commercial property market following a successful year for the company.

Shana Owen, CEO at brightLET, said: “'For a company in its early stages, I am really pleased with our development. The team have worked extremely hard on developing new features to ensure our offering remains unique and innovative. This is only the beginning, our strategic vision will come to fruition over the next 18 months and I look forward to watching our team continue to go from strength-to-strength.”

brightLET’s cloud-based platform connects landlords directly with tenants enabling users to advertise, find a property, communicate and manage tenancies online without using a third party.

The company is one of 12 start-ups recently accepted on to Innovation Birmingham Campus’ Serendip Smart City Incubator, a new offering aimed at accelerating the growth of digital start-ups by co-locating them with large corporate partners.

Based at the Campus’ new 42,149 sq ft iCentrum building, start-ups can sign up to one of four sector-specific ‘quarters’; Digital Health, Intelligent Mobility, Internet of Things and Barclays Eagle Labs, which are being delivered by Innovation Birmingham in collaboration with the West Midlands Academic Health Science Network, Centro, the Transport Systems Catapult, RWE npower and Barclays.

Applications for the second cohort of start-ups are now open.
