REACH UK has announced its inaugural cohort in February 2020. Our co-founder Louisa Dickins has joined REACH UK Mentor community, which comprises top industry executives forming a support ecosystem to help programme participants to drive growth within global real estate. REACH UK showcase, which was created exclusively for the mentor community was a great opportunity to hear from the companies innovating the Real Estate industry.

LMRE had an exclusive invitation to attend the showcase and had the pleasure of being introduced to the 7 companies selected for 2021 programme. 

The 7 businesses in REACH UK 2021 cohort gave a short demonstration of their innovative technologies. Given the constraints of a virtual meeting and precious time the start-ups had, they delivered an engaging and motivating showcase which left us excited to find out more and see where the companies go in 2021 and beyond.
