About JaeVee

Welcome to JaeVee. A prop-tech business based in Norwich, UK.

Our joint venture platform provides property equity and mezzanine investors
with opportunities to invest in the joint ventures between us as the property developer and main contractors
from the comfort of their own home, around the globe.

We’re the UK’s first joint venture platform between us (the property developer), main contractors, equity and mezzanine investors. Helping to deliver upon the UK’s housing shortage by delivering much needed high quality homes.

We originally started out as providing equity to property developers to joint venture on property developments throughout the UK, though we found most of our time was spent rejecting proposals from developers as they simply weren’t viable.

It seemed that the majority of excellent SME property developers were few and far between so we decided to change our model to achieve our goal of delivering 5000 units per annum to the UK housing market. Being that JaeVee was founded by people that are property developers in their own right, we adapted by joint venturing with main contractors instead of property developers.

No longer having the challenge of being reliant upon property developers finding and securing new property development opportunities, we now use our own years of experience in sourcing sites internally. Therefore meaning:

We Find. We Buy. You Build

Once we’ve sourced and acquired the sites via our joint venture platform, we then progress the designs to a stage whereby we’re able to tender and appoint an experienced main contractor to deliver the scheme based on market construction prices. As we’re believers of incentives in life, we offer the main contractor a % of the profits (from JaeVee’s side) on the basis they deliver on time and to budget.

We don’t see a return until exits are achieved, therefore all parties' interests are aligned because we only succeed when you do.

We’ve built a system that manages everything from start to finish (it took 2 years), which is accessible to all parties at all times.

This is a unique concept that is transforming the 'skin in the game' property development industry from being stuck in the old way of doing things and embracing a much needed change in helping to solve the UK’s housing crisis. Such a disruptive model is being led by a team possessing a collective experience of over 100 years in property & tech and it’s that experience that has created a platform that connects property development opportunities with investors.
