TechStars Enters the Real Estate Accelerator Picture with Partnership with Colliers

I’ve written about real estate accelerators before, and even questioned how many of them the industry can support.

The real estate accelerator space got a tad more crowded last week. The clear leader in accelerators, Techstars, is partnering with Colliers to launch the Colliers PropTech Accelerator Powered by Techstars.

My biggest questions:

  • “Proptech” is a massively broad category encompassing residential sales, rentals, commercial, smart home, and mortgage (among others). How do applicants/portfolio companies play out between commercial (where Colliers can help the most) and the rest of the industry?
  • What strategic distribution can the Techstars-Colliers partnership bring to startups? Money by itself is not enough, what startups really need are sales/distribution.

Founders: The accelerator will run in Q4 2018 in Toronto. Applications open February 19, 2018. Learn more here.
