Revolutionizing how we capture and manage the built world
Reality capture and AI technology have the power to transform the real estate and construction industries, and OpenSpace is tackling this challenge boldly–providing industry-leading solutions for capturing and analyzing the built world.
Building time machines for every jobsite
At OpenSpace, we’re using cutting-edge technology—think the perception and navigation AI systems used in self-driving cars—to empower teams to efficiently capture their work, analyze it, and get things done. You could say we’re building virtual time machines for every jobsite—imagine the ability to see your site as it is today, yesterday, or a year ago—at the click of a button.
Reducing the cost, time, and pain it takes to build and operate will revolutionize the construction industry specifically and real estate management broadly—and revolutionize how we manage humanity’s built environments overall. Even a savings of one percent would change the game. And we can do a lot better than one percent.

About our founders
Jeevan Kalanithi, CEO
Jeevan sold his first company, Sifteo, to 3D Robotics, where he eventually became the President. 3DR, a 200+ person company, launched a drone which made $45M in its first year. 3DR partnered with Autodesk to launch Site Scan, a tool for documenting and analyzing jobsites. Jeevan was most recently an Entrepreneur-in-Residence at Lux Capital. He holds a BS from Stanford and an MS from MIT, where he was a National Science Foundation Graduate Fellow.
Philip DeCamp, CTO
Philip was recently a computer vision and data visualization research scientist at MIT, where he completed his PhD (and Masters, and BS). His work has been featured at TED, among other places.
Michael Fleischman, Chief Scientist
After completing his PhD at MIT, Michael started Bluefin Labs, a company that specialized in analysis of massive amounts of video. Twitter acquired Bluefin in one of its largest acquisitions. Michael was most recently an advisor to Twitter’s CTO.
OpenSpace’s investors are not just world-class technology venture firms—they are general contractors, construction managers, developers and owners—all of whom were customers before they were investors. We have a strong foundation of capital—with about $200M raised to date—and we have a strong network of builders that help us develop our products and ensure they solve the right problems. They are in it to win it, and so are we.
