KEKO will make buildings safer, more fluent and more productive
Let's make buildings more human-centric – together. We are a dynamic, high-performing ecosystem on a mission to define the future of the built environment.
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.
Head of Technology Management
Today´s digitalized world brings tremendous opportunities to create prominent ecosystems and platforms for sustainable buildings and entire urban environments. We hope that KEKO will set a new standard in the real estate industry in this respect.

Halton’s priority is to enable people’s wellbeing in demanding indoor environments. We believe our mission can be pushed furthest in smart buildings with good connectivity and extensive use of data. Here, ecosystems are crucial. KEKO brings together leading-edge players to unlock this potential and create a smart ecosystem for better life in buildings.
Director, Strategy & Business Development
Future buildings will offer unseen experiences for humans. KEKO is a unique opportunity for Finnish SMEs and startups to innovate new data based services in buildings. We are supporting KEKO innovations and forming the future ecosystem as a research partner, but also as the ecosystem coordinator.

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.
Director of Cybersecurity
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
Nokia creates the technology to connect the world. With KEKO we want to validate the benefits of private wireless connectivity and related applications in a smart building ecosystem together with the innovative group of KEKO partners and other KEKO friends. We are happy to introduce Nokia Digital Automation Cloud to this community. It is exciting to be part of the journey and bring benefits to the smart building industry while incubating growth opportunities for Nokia and the whole KEKO ecosystem. dac.nokia.com
