The Propmodo team kicked-off the New York Real Estate Tech Week, with their event ‘Building the Future’. With the help of some fantastic speakers throughout the morning and afternoon like Zachary Aarons, Co-Founder and Partner of MetaProp.vc and Rajdeep Gahir, Co-Founder of Vivahouse. They examined what lies ahead for the property industry from the people changing it and the digital transformations occurring. Throughout the day, trends and technologies affecting the built environment were explored to get an idea of the future.
Straight away we bumped into Vanessa and Pete from District Technologies who sponsored the event and the boujie boat trip after the event.
Between the talks there were networking events upstairs and downstairs where people could exchange thoughts and catch up/meet for the first time.
There were people from various different sectors, roles and countries. We met some of the team at Metaprop like Ryan Baxter and Safi Aziz. Also managed to catch up with a fellow Brit who has moved to the Big Apple Jonathan Mills, from the law firm Osborne Clarke. We also bumped into a co-founder from an asset management tech platform, Wealth Park who was all the way from Japan.
After the event and our VIP yacht party, Franco, Travis and Logan took us on the Manhattan 2 boat for a tour of river where Ryan Baxter took us through various sites and real estate history.
It was great to meet everyone, and we are really looking forward to catching up with new friends and faces throughout this week’s event.
Special thanks for the Propmodo team. What an event!
