Proptech startup FLK it over has raised $2.5 million as it looks to expand beyond real estate with its electronic document signing solutions.

He previously raised $2.13 million in 2022 from the likes of Charter Hall founder David Southon who doubled down in the new round, along with Bilgola Capital.

FLK it over now has 24 staff and will use the capital to expand in Australia and beyond real estate into sectors such as law, financial advice and accounting.

Colagiuri said their e-signature solution makes time-consuming paperwork simple and seamless .

“The real estate industry is one in which every process you want to perform ends with a signature, whether it be hiring, leasing, selling or buying,” he said.

“We have ensured we deliver a powerful platform that is simple to navigate and use. We also spent significant time on the client experience to facilitate a clean and seamless process on a mobile device. For us, it’s important to not only provide a phenomenal experience for the agent, but their clients too; it’s something we care deeply about.”

Investor David Southern said that he was impressed with the seamless, digital approach to signing and managing residential lease documents.
