25 selected technology Startups emerging as finalists from Real Estate Innovation Contest 2018 will present trendsetting solutions on the Startup Alley at EXPO REAL. In addition to that, they will be competing for a final victory and the Real Estate Innovation Award in each field in the so-called Startup Battlefields.

Sixteen hundred European start-ups were addressed, 460 applied for the biggest start-up contest in Europe. The jury of the Real Estate Innovation Network – over 50 international industry experts – selected the 55 best concepts and ideas, which were then presented at a pre-pitch in Berlin on 25 and 26 April.

“All participants have to offer solutions that are really relevant to the property sector”, explains Claudia Boymanns, Exhibition Director of EXPO REAL and initiator of REIN. “What’s special about the Real Estate Innovation Network is that we want to promote digital innovation in the entire value chain.” Accordingly, the categories of the contest are “Invest”, “Market”, “Plan & Build”, “Work” and “Manage & Operate”. A new addition is “Smart Cities & Urbanization” – because technology companies play a crucial part in shaping the future of the city.

Carbon Delta is one of the 5 finalists in the “Invest” category and our CEO, Oliver Marchand, will pitch in the Startup Battlefields at REAL ESTATE INNOVATION FORUM in Munich on October 8th. Carbon Delta is currently developing a scenario-based modelling of real estate assets for investors. It enables institutional investors to understand the position of their real estate investments vis-à-vis climate targets.
