It was another massive week for the RealTech ecosystem in Australia at the Sydney PropTech summit with more than 200 participants in attendance.

Day one was brilliantly hosted by James Dearsley and covered the corporate perspective with great presentations by Dexus, Charter Hall and JLL.

Day two began with Nelson Yap focusing in on some great examples of Proptech in Action and I was very pleased to be asked to host the afternoon session. We began with Chris Rolls and the viewpoint of a real estate focused VC, followed by a vibrant panel discussion covering Collaboration with Shen Chiu, Matt Pope, Jason Weeks and Chris Rolls.

We then moved to the pitching competition hosted by Johanna Pitman from Blue Chill and the winner was Symbiot Technology Pty Ltd.

I do appreciate we were speaking to true believers. It is through events like these that the barriers between Corporates and the Small Businesses targeting the real estate sector (note I am no longer calling them Start-ups) will be eroded. Congrats to the organiser Quest Events Pty Ltd, Symbiot Technology Pty Ltd and all the sponsors and participants.

Already looking forward to the 2019 Summit. #Taronga Group #realestate #venturecapital
