Propel by MIPIM Startup Competition

Seeking top emerging startups in the Real Estate Industry

The Propel by MIPIM Startup Competition, in partnership with global partner Union Investment and real estate tech partner MetaProp, reveals the most promising and innovative startups that tackle the biggest urban challenges around the world.

For the fifth consecutive year, selected startups will pitch their ideas and business models to move the real estate ecosystem forward during Propel by MIPIM events featuring three major international Proptech hubs – Paris, New York and Hong Kong.

Congratulations to the winners from all three stops!
