Real Estate Tech News Article February 2, 2017

Taronga Ventures’ Jonathan Hannam has been featured in a Real Estate Tech News article, ‘Taronga Ventures Interview: Launching a Real Estate Tech Fund in the Asia-Pacific’.

Real Estate Tech News addressed the significance of real estate technology where, ‘in January this year, VC heavyweight Norwest Investment Partners identified real estate technology as one of its top predictions for 2017. Despite attracting growing interest, the real estate tech investment scene is still limited to a handful of specialist accelerators (MetaProp, Pi Labs etc), industry investors (Capitaland, CBRE, Savills etc) and more general VCs that include some real estate investments as part of a broader portfolio (the most notable exception being Camber Creek in the US which specialises in real estate).’

They continued to introduce Taronga Ventures, ‘in Australia, Taronga Ventures is closing a AUD$50m fund and will become the first independent, specialist ReTech fund to launch in the Asia-Pacific region. The process of raising capital and selling the concept of real estate tech is a story that reflects the industry as a whole – early pioneers who clearly see the imminent impact and opportunity of technology, corporates hungry for innovation and real estate leaders eager to ride the disruption wave but uncertain how to go about it.’

Founder of Real Estate Tech blog Disrupt Property, Jack FitzGerald, interviewed Taronga Ventures’ Jonathan Hannam as they discussed the journey and opportunity of real estate technology.
