Voices about the PropTech Innovation Award

  • We are full of anticipation for the fourth edition! With all the experience we've gained over the last few years, we're now going to take on specific challenges in our search for the most promising start-ups and technologies. In addition, our competition will culminate this year in the big Proptech Innovation Summit, where we’ll develop concrete solutions with representatives from the "old" and the "new" real estate industry. This connection is exactly what we prefer to work on with GERMANTECH and what the "economy of tomorrow" embodies for us.

  • The proptech scene has come of age. More and more solutions are being developed through close engagement with the industry. Our initiative is designed to leverage this new maturity. We’re looking for robust, viable solutions. Our aim is to specifically address major pain points facing us and other relevant players in the sector.
