We are building the global standard for smart building platforms
Creating a safer, more fluent and more productive built environment is an enormous business opportunity. However, no company can make the most of the opportunity alone.
That’s why the KEKO ecosystem brings together leading Finnish companies from among others the connectivity, people flow, construction and building technology industries. This new way of working together beyond corporate borders enables us to solve problems faster and create unprecedented solutions.
Our seven founding partners and their reasons for joining
In KEKO we will build a digital platform, together with the best industry players in Finland. We will use the smart building data to innovate new solutions that will predict the needs of building users, and make these environments more functional and responsive.

As a cybersecurity provider, our goal is to help KEKO community to build digital trust into all phases of smart building life cycle. At Netox, we believe that with all the key partners and the community working together, the KEKO ecosystem can create innovations to shape the industry. We truly value this opportunity to be part of the group.

Traditionally, buildings are closed systems that are monitored separately and decision making for building is based on investment costs, not life cycle costs. But in future, this will change. Close cooperation with different service provides will bring new value to all real estate stakeholders. We believe in the value of KEKO community – for innovations and more complex & smarter solutions.
Head of Digital Service Solutions, CoE Digitalization
