Hi, YC community! We're Jean-Michael and Krager, the founders of PropRise.

At PropRise, we're on a mission to bring the power of data to the commercial real estate industry. After launching our first product for mobile home parks last year, we discovered a huge need for better intelligence in the booming self-storage sector.

The Self-Storage Developer's Dilemma 🏗️

The self-storage industry is experiencing unprecedented growth, with 54.4M sq. ft. of new space set to be completed in 2024 alone. However, this rapid expansion brings increased competition and market saturation risk.

To succeed in this environment, self-storage developers need to quickly identify the most promising opportunities and make data-driven decisions. However, the current market intelligence landscape is fragmented and outdated, making it difficult and time-consuming to gain the necessary insights.

Introducing Beacon 🌟

Beacon solves this problem by leveraging AI to collect and analyze self-storage data at an unprecedented scale and depth. With Beacon, self-storage developers can:

  • Forecast Demand: Predict future storage needs and optimize development strategies with AI-powered demand forecasting.
  • Select Optimal Sites: Identify the most promising locations for new developments based on a comprehensive analysis of market factors.
  • Analyze Competition: Stay ahead of the competition with insights into market trends, competitor activity, and pricing.

Beacon empowers users to make smarter, faster decisions and accelerate their self-storage development projects from concept to completion.
