National awards dedicated to Australia’s Proptech Industry
It's time to stand up and be recognised! Celebrate the extraordinary innovation, solutions and achievement occurring across the proptech universe with the Proptech Association Australia’s third annual Proptech Awards.
A gala dinner to announce the winners and highly commended entries will be held in Sydney on Wednesday July 19 at the Fullerton Hotel.
The Proptech Awards offer 24 awards across three main categories: Start-Ups, Scale-Ups and Established Suppliers. This means you’ll be judged against your peers in terms of company size, the resources behind you and innovation maturity by our panel of expert judges from across the real estate, property and construction industry as we look at who has delivered the best tech across the past 12 months.
Awards entry closes on May 12, 2023. Entry is free to Proptech Association of Australia members.
Who is Eligible to Enter?
These businesses will be up to three years old and may be working on an MVP or have developed a product that is in the process of winning its first customers or starting to attract clients. As a start-up you must be an independent proptech. If you are part of a larger organisation, you are most likely to be part of an Established Supplier or a Corporate Proptech.
These companies will have been operating continuously in the Proptech sector for a minimum of three years but less than 10 years. They have a viable product and are rapidly growing their business and technology. As a scale-up you must be an independent proptech. If you are part of a larger organisation, you are most likely to be part of an Established Supplier or a Corporate Proptech.
These are companies which have been continuously operating in the property or real estate technology sector for 10 years or more. The technology you enter may reflect your entire platform or be a new product you’ve launched this year or a product that you’ve recently acquired into your portfolio of businesses.
In 2023 we have introduced our new Corporate Proptech of the Year Award to recognise the achievements of ‘intrepreneurs’ inside major companies. You qualify as a Corporate Proptech if you are an established property industry company, real estate business, large property owner or major corporation that has developed a proptech for either your own uses and/or for your clients.
