Nordic PropTech Summit 2018 : Photos & Video

On the 31st May 2018 the Nordic PropTech Summit 2008 took place with some 200 attendees. This year it was part of the SIME Spring event. Our idea with intensive and short talks (no one longer than 20 minutes) worked out really well based from the feedback from many attendees.

In an afternoon we heard from Rodrigo Sa, Head of Global Business Development,  Hyperloop Transportation Technologies Inc, Joyeeta Das, CEO & founder from Gyana an AI company created by PhD's from Oxford University that makes sense of the saying ‘Location, Location, Location’ by understanding peoples movement, Morten Lund, founder of Poshtel (and serial entrepreneur incl early Skype investor... Legend!)  and his new venture Poshtel and many more.

See some photos below and the live stream video here.


See you soon again.

Great first meet up in Stockholm

On June 8th 2017 we had our first 'meet up' for the Nordic Proptech Initiative. The idea was to gather a smaller group of people to test if the idea of a network could be of interest. Immediately the response was great. In the end 70 people from over 50 companies showed up on a Thursday night in Stockholm and took part in the discussion.  

A discussion that then continued on LinkedIn in different posts like 12, 34, and 5. In addition, we also got press coverage in FastighetsNytt (one of the largest property magazines in the Nordics). 

The overwhelming response during the discussions (and afterwards in many emails) was that this is something many have been missing. 
So stay tuned; more to come. We promise.
