Founders: Marcus Ginn, James Shaw and Andrew Peacock
Business: A CRE tech platform combining the best in property mapping with transaction evidence and UK-wide, cross-sector occupier data.
Edozo was founded in 2016 by Marcus Ginn (CEO) and two MRICS commercial surveyors – James Shaw (CRO) and Andrew Peacock (CPO). They were frustrated with the clunky and overpriced technology available to UK commercial property professionals and founded Edozo with the goal of enabling “property research, as it should be”.
The startup’s integrated platform makes commercial property research and valuation more efficient and accurate for valuers, agents, investors and other property professionals. Edozo aim to make property valuation more profitable for valuers, and reduced lead times for lenders and investors.
Edozo’s original challenge was to convince UK property firms to replace the outdated and often overpriced software that they had become familiar with over the years. Covid presented different problems including how to gain the attention of potential clients whilst they were distracted by events. Despite such challenges Edozo has grown consistently and now serves hundreds of clients and thousands of users at firms including CBRE, JLL, and Colliers.
UK commercial property professionals have been consistently willing to look at better technology options, and Edozo is now the fastest growing platform in their category.

2022 will be the most important year yet for Edozo. The startup re-launched their brand and platform in January, which now includes three products. Edozo Maps is the most widely used digital mapping platform for UK commercial property professionals; Edozo Insight provides CRE transaction comparables and other market data; and Edozo Occupiers is the first cross-sector occupier plans product to map retail, industrial, and office occupiers across the UK.
By combining three easy to use products on a single platform the startup are already increasing the efficiency of property professionals and reducing their costs. Edozo will go further in 2022 by adding unique automation technology to the platform, further reducing the time required to research or value commercial property assets.
The startup recently launched The Edozo Property Podcast, which has been well received and featured guests from WiredScore, JLL and React News. Edozo will invest in more quality content generation for the commercial property sector this year, including regular podcasts, market analysis and events.
