In January of this year, I wrote my first blog article for PropTech Future. I honestly assumed that nobody would read it and that my entry into the world of blogging would be short-lived. However, I was blown away by all of the amazing support that I received and I am so appreciative of all the subscribers, interviewees, and participants that played a role in building PropTech Future into what it is today.
Over the past year, we have added thousands of subscribers made up of VCs, Real Estate Executives, PropTech/Fintech leaders, Entrepreneurs, and Thought Leaders. We have published 38 articles, and held a Startup Pitch competition which received 73 entries from across the globe.
We have a really exciting schedule of articles that will be published in 2022 covering topics such as Immersive Entertainment Real Estate, Fintech Applications for the Multi-Family Industry, Investment Platforms for Real Estate, Lead-Gen/Marketing Tools for Real Estate Agents, and many other topics. As always, if there are any topics that you want me to cover, or if you are interested in participating in an upcoming article, please do not hesitate to reach out to me at any time.
To close out 2021, I wanted to highlight some of my favorite interviews from the past year (each article is linked below):
