Future of Real Estate Summit in Miami

There is an upcoming Future of Real Estate Summit in Miami that some of you may be interested in (press release here). The one day gathering is June 12th.

I had the chance to ask Pamela Simon a few questions about the event to help you determine whether it’s worth making the trip, or applying to the competition if you’re a founder reading.

1. What is it?

LAB Ventures has created a complete program that combines pitch sessions from the most interesting and disruptive real estate and construction start-ups, as well as compelling panel discussions and keynote speeches addressing the ever-accelerating tech trends in real estate! We are entering into a new phase where real estate companies are starting to leverage virtual reality to create smarter spaces, machine learning to standardize and insights from industry data to more efficiently manage transaction services. Come to Miami to learn all about it, and meet the relevant individuals and companies playing a role.

2. Who is it for, and who will attendees meet there?

If you are a start-up developing technology for the real estate or construction industry, this event not only gives you the opportunity to present your product to investors and industry leaders but also offers the possibility to have one-to-one meetings with them.

If you are a VC, Private equity, angel investor, or accelerator you will find unique investment opportunities as well as new insights to inform your decision making.

For real estate executives, brokers, developers, lenders, vendors, property managers or those in the construction industry, this event provides the opportunity to learn about the latest trends in technological innovation and digital disruption.

Confirmed speakers include executives from Zillow, Cemex Ventures, DreamIt Ventures, Watsco Ventures, Plaza Construction, Booj, Inman, Arquitectonica, WellcomeMat, Common, Convene, Realconnex, CRETech, Lionstone Development, Florida Value Partners, and Grass River Property.

3. What’s in it for founders? Please give our audience the pitch as to why a founder should apply to the startup competition.

As a founder of a real estate or construction tech company this is one event you should definitely apply to pitch at as our events have opened doors to some incredible opportunities for the startups that get selected. In our last event 7 or the 10 companies now have a partnership, pilot program or are in final negotiations on investment rounds! In addition to the awesome prizes listed below the 10 finalists will have the chance to pitch their company on stage in front of 250 industry leaders and executives, the audience is highly curated so the networking opportunities will blow your mind. We will have a lot of press coverage so your name will definitely be reaching the ears of companies and people are you looking to work with and during the event the finalists will have the chance to participate in a private one on one speed dating session with industry executives and investors.

The top 10 finalists will be invited to pitch in-person at Future of Real Estate during the Start Up Pitch Session portion of the day. They will also receive 2 free tickets to attend the Future of Real Estate Summit and will be invited to participtate in 1-on-1 meetings with investors and executives from Real Estate companies.

First Place is awarded by our panel of expert judges, and the winner receives an exhibitor table at CREtech’s December 6th event in NYC (valued at $3000; includes 3 passes to attend).
