ULI Europe inaugurates proptech competition
The Urban Land Institute has launched a European sustainability-focused proptech competition.
The PropTech Innovation Challenge (PIC), is a new competition from ULI Europe to bring together the innovators across real estate and technology.
Entrepreneurs from six regions across Europe - France, Germany, Iberia, the Nordics, Switzerland and the UK - to apply with a proposal that is a novel, but scalable and competitive solution to align with ULI’s mission priorities:
- Decarbonization and Net Zero
- Increasing housing attainability and affordability
- Educating the next generation of leaders
Lisette van Doorn, CEO ULI Europe, said: “We believe tech and innovation are key to addressing some of our industry’s most pressing challenges. We are calling out to start-ups across Europe to work with us, educate us and help us bridge the gap between the built environment and tech and innovation.”
The competition will be structured across two phases. Firstly, a country stage where start-ups are invited to apply and to present in front of a local selection committee of industry experts.
Country winners will participate in a European final and present in front of a ULI Europe PIC committee. The final winner will be announced at the ULI Europe C Change Summit in Copenhagen on October 11th.
Winners will be awarded a one-year ULI membership providing access to research content, event, webinars, education and mentorship programs, knowledge sharing and connections with a multidisciplinary global network of a real estate and land use professionals.
