The European PropTech Association is excited to announce that the PropTech Startup & Scale-Up Europe Awards 2021 are now live and applications are open!
The third edition of the PropTech StartUp & ScaleUp Europe Awards is part of StartUp Europe and is supported and promoted by the European Commission & Finnova Foundation, supported by the President of the European Parliament, the President of the Committee of the Regions, the Vice-President of the Economic and Social Committee and several members from the European Parliament.
Why should you apply?
These awards are a unique European initiative, giving visibility and support to the most promising startups and scale-ups in innovation in real estate. All European PropTech networks are involved in these awards, by giving support to all the new startups and scale-ups in the field of innovation and disruptive transformation in the real estate sector.
In 2020, we received applications from all over Europe, of which we selected 50 innovative PropTech startups to pitch at the Semi-Finals in Brussels. See the video below to find out how these semi-finals take place!
This year, the overall winner was Wondrwall Group, a British company that has developed an intelligence system for smart homes, giving homes brains the knowledge to control themselves. It does so by embedding over 100 sensors in the home that monitor occupancy patterns and how the home performs environmentally, and by applying data analysis and machine learning.
The PropTech StartUp & ScaleUp Europe Awards 2021 span across 5 subcategories in both categories: Invest, Market, Design & Build, Manage & Operate, Live & Work. As there can only be one winner in each category, all the subcategory winners will go head-to-head to determine the two overall winners of each category.
How to apply
All European PropTech startups & scale-ups are invited to submit their case until January 31st on the website of the EU PropTech House. All projects will be reviewed by industry experts from across Europe and of the board members of the European PropTech Association during judging procedures, which will run until April 30, 2021.
The 50 shortlisted startups and scale-ups will be invited to the Semi-Final, a live-pitch session on June 20 and 21, 2021 in Brussels, in the presence of the board members, the Representative of the European Commissioner, and all the jury members.
The winner of the awards will be announced at Propel by Mipim in September 2021 in the presence of a representative of the European Commission.
All PropTech startups and scale-ups: submit your case between November, 10, and January 31, 2021!
