About the Proptech Innovation Award 2021
The globe continues to face challenges and by looking into the future, Union Investment and GERMANTECH, has announced the 5th PropTech Innovation Award and Summit under the motto "Accelerating the Real Estate Evolution”. We want to enable the most innovative startups to showcase their work in five new categories that have been identified as key in continuously developing the real estate sector. The competition features prize money of up to EUR 40,000.
The five categories:
Does your solution help building owners to reduce costs or efforts, stay relevant, attractive, flexible and modern to support and cater to the needs of the new generation of office tenants? Could it be in alignment with the increased requirements for healthier and more hygienic workplace concepts? Also considering flexibility, rent terms and fit-out?
Does your solution digitalize and optimize processes, speed of valuation, automation and decision making? How does it ensure quality, accuracy and clarity of data in real estate asset management and transactions?
Does your solution support location-based retailers in times of e-commerce, challenges of temporary restrictions, reduced numbers of walk-in customers, changing consumer behaviour, and changing demographics? How can retail spaces be re-used, re-arranged or re-thought?
Does your solution add value to residential buildings, micro apartments and other living concepts to offer tenants a perfect experience while they are at their (temporary) home? How do you simplify communication, rental processes and/or maintenance for owners and increase individuality and flexibility?
Does your solution help building owners, operators and users solve the challenges of energy consumption and building efficiency due to the rise of regulatory demands and increased connectivity?
