by Steve Randall on 18 Jan 2018
The way that technology will shape – and disrupt -  the real estate industry is the focus of a new partnership announced by Colliers International Group.

The firm has launched Colliers Proptech Accelerator in collaboration with entrepreneurs’ network Techstars.

“Disruptive changes in technology, evolving demographics, fierce global competition and increased connectivity are factors impacting all industries,” said Dylan Taylor, Colliers President & COO. “And the commercial real estate industry is no exception. Colliers sees this as an opportunity and is committed to being the most enterprising company in our industry by developing innovative and value enhancing services for our clients and professionals.”

The new initiative will run across Colliers’ global network and startups will be selected for their industry-disrupting technologies and will work with the accelerator during a 13-week intensive program at the firm’s global headquarters in Toronto.

Colliers Proptech Accelerator will enable us to source, shape and invest in new solutions and opportunities across the real estate value chain, providing a competitive advantage for our clients, employees and shareholders,” said Colliers chairman and CEO Jay Hennick.
