Julian Kezelman, Program Director, RealTechX, said his team was excited by the quality, depth and uniqueness of applicants to this year’s program. “RealTechX aims to promote forward-looking solutions to its partner group. It is clear that the RealTech sector is coming of age – moving beyond simple apps and platforms that optimise existing practices to genuinely transformational technologies.” 

The RealTechX team believes that this maturation of the RealTech sector is being mirrored by an increasing appetite for change within the real estate industry.

Avi Naidu, Managing Partner, Taronga Ventures, said the program’s expanding corporate partner network demonstrates the increasing commitment to innovation from real estate majors. “The COVID-19 period has caused dramatic shifts in the real estate sector, driving owners and operators of assets to reimagine how buildings will be used in the future. Real estate executives are now convinced that innovation and technology  has a central role to play in building robust and differentiated portfolios.”
