While FinTech seems to be hitting all the headlines this year we’ve been championing another emerging sector in the technology market known as PropTech. PropTech (that’s property and technology) sees entrepreneurs, incubators and accelerators using technology to improve how property is dealt with and experienced.
Why we’re excited about PropTech
We believe the future of property lies in the PropTech sector, a sector that is genuinely making things better for people from improving the everyday to accomplishing life goals like buying your first property.
In this blog post we introduce you to 8 of the hottest PropTech startups hoping their solution is the next big thing.
