PropTech Discovery Competition

Applications are now open for the Westman Centre PropTech Discovery Competition.

The pandemic, and subsequent disruption to our lives, has led to a desire for creative collisions and has provided a pivotal opportunity to examine how the intersection of real estate and technology can change the way the world’s largest asset class is developed, traded, used and operated.

This competition, hosted by the Westman Centre for Real Estate Studies and co-presented by Brookfield Property Development and Canadian Western Bank, is a great opportunity for students to evaluate the potential of a PropTech solution to address a business opportunity or challenge across the real estate value chain, and to showcase your talent to a panel of senior representatives from the real estate and tech sectors. 

Your team will conduct a deep dive into emerging technology solutions and make the case that at least one emerging technology you discover can provide real business value to the real estate industry.

Prizes include cash and / or scholarships, including $10,000 for the winning team.
