Shortly before the 2009 financial crisis our CEO, Maurice Grassau, was involved a billion euro CRE transaction that had stalled as an essential document was missing. After lots of painstaking searching, the document was found and the sale went through.
The next day, the recession hit. If that document had been found a single day later, the transaction would have collapsed, costing the stakeholders millions. This is where the idea for Architrave, a one-stop solution for asset managers to gather and organise all of their docs and data, was born.
Founded four years later in Berlin in 2013, Architrave set out with a vision to revolutionise document and data management in the commercial real estate sector.
