Swimming with the sharks

Swimming with the Sharks: Real Estate Proptechs Take the Jump 

July 2020

PropTech is an innovative approach to real estate in which technology optimizes the way people research, rent, buy, sell, and manage a property. The cross-industry technology benefits all parties involved - developers, investors, and property management companies - making it a recent buzzword in commercial real estate. PropTech real estate startups are all those that are attempting to make the real estate industry better, more efficient, and easier to navigate. New York is a leader in this up and coming industry with many real estate concerns. Also, through PropTech, we have come to realize the great value and usefulness that technology can lend to real estate companies, as they look to increase the effectiveness and efficiency of the products and services they provide and deliver. 

As proptech companies continue to find footing within the real estate marketplace, the CoreNet Proptech Committee is excited to present “Swimming with the Sharks: Real Estate PropTechs Take the Jump.” This Shark Tank-inspired event will feature pitches by four proptech companies in front of a panel of four industry expert “sharks.” 

The virtual event will take place on August 5 from 12:30pm-1:45pm and include the following presenters: Andrew Flint from Occupier (lease administration), Brigitte Beltran from Saltmine (workplace strategy, programming, and design), Jake Snyder from TracFlo (construction management), and Laura Patel from Density.io (sensor utilization). The panel of sharks will include Meagan Riley from JLL Sparks, Gus Vazquez from CBS, Stan Gibson from Wells Fargo, and Kurt Ochalla from Biogen, and the moderator will be Steve Weikal, Head of Industry Relations, MIT Center for Real Estate. Each company will deliver an eight-minute pitch to the sharks, followed by a nine-minute question and answer session. At the end, the audience will be polled and a winner will be announced.
