The fresh funding from leading strategic investors will position Jones to sustain rapid growth becoming the standard for insurance compliance in the CRE industry.

Over the past 18 months, Jones has been deployed in over 500 of properties and thousands of vendors growing 20% MoM with leading companies such as JLL, MITIMCo, Stark Enterprises, and many others.

After just a few weeks of implementation, real estate customers cut liability exposures along with a seamless user experience for property managers, tenants and vendors.

Jones cofounder and CEO Omri Stern said, "We believe the on-demand-economy is coming to commercial real estate, and that means the insurance workflows need to be rebuilt for simplicity. Real estate managers, tenants and vendors deserve an effortless and transparent experience when completing the insurance approval process. Jones is building the compliance network where every transaction is like ordering an Uber."
