Innovative key custody service Redkey.app set for international expansion after securing further finance
The safe, secure and simple key storage company has appointed a new CEO after fresh round of investor funding
The Barcelona-based app – which allows users to anonymously store emergency keys in a secure place and request drop-off 24/7 – has received another thumbs-up from investors.
An injection of €300,000 is now being used to diversify the brand into new cities and accelerate app performance.
Redkey.app is described as an “innovative key safe logistics solution”, operating the first specialised technology platform of its kind. Designed for domestic and personal use (homes, vehicles, business premises), the app has already proven a huge success in Catalonia – with plans to roll out the service domestically and further abroad.
New CEO to lead key management service through 2021
With Redkey.app, emergency keys are stored in security cabinets under permanent surveillance. Whenever keys are needed, users simply tap the app and a driver will deliver them at any time, day or night.
Users are assigned a unique and encrypted security code for each key (the app never asks for names) and subscriptions are completely free.
Encrypted code technology means owners can also authorise keys to be sent to anyone they may want to access the property or vehicle – such as friends or family members.
Astrid Camprubí has been appointed to the board of directors to lead the company into the next chapter, equipping the company with the skills it needs in business development, devising strategies and the design of scalable models.
Camprubí stated: “Redkey.app lets you control your house/space, without the need to be physically present, so we provide you with confidence and a personal service.
“This new capital injection will be used to develop and optimise the service, the integration and the UX and will enable us to begin our expansion into new capitals.”
Redkey.app: A visionary idea for changing times
Redkey.app was founded in 2021 by five visionaries in Javier Durán, Joan Castells, Ernest Quingles, Eduardo Conde and Ramón Barguñó.
Since launch, the company has made a strong commitment to in-house talent, enabling it to have control over security and foster the engagement of that talent.
The unique and pioneering nature of this project has enticed investors specialising in Technology and Smart Cities – with more money now being dedicated to the platform for further development.
RedKey.app was founded to respond to a world in constant change.
In 2021, five visionaries in Barcelona built a business model that offered a professional solution to a problem that, until today, was handled informally: The management of emergency keys for the home, vehicles and business premises.
A completely anonymous, end-to-end, 24/7 key storage and drop-off service, Redkey.app guarantees security and simplicity – with all services available at the touch of a button.
