WiredScore, the building connectivity rating company that was once majority-owned by Jared Kushner, has raised $9 million in a new venture funding round.

Fifth Wall Ventures, Bessemer Venture Partners, Sterling.VC, Legal & General, KingSett Capital, U+I, Town Centre Securities, MOMENI Digital Ventures and Savitt Partners participated in the round, the companies announced Monday.

Founded in 2013 by Arie Barendrecht, WiredScore runs a rating system that measures the digital connectivity of commercial properties. It charges landlords for the service.

Kushner sold his majority stake to Fifth Wall and Bessemer in October 2017, Forbes reported.
