Entries for the Proptech Association Australia (PAA) 2023 Proptech Awards are now open.
The awards span three categories –startups, scale-ups, and established Suppliers – for each award and this year there are seven new awards.
Proptech Association Australia President Kylie Davis said that this year there will be 33 awards in total.
“We are recognising a new specialisation for proptechs in Data, Analytics, Insights & AI plus new awards for Commercial Proptech of the Year, Residential Proptech of the Year, Corporate Proptech of the Year and VC & Accelerator Program of the Year,” she said.
Entries close on Tuesday, May 9.
More than 40 judges will assess the entries, and short-listed finalists will be revealed in early June.
The winners will be announced at gala dinner at The Fullerton Hotel in Sydney on Wednesday, July 19.
“Last year, we hosted 330 people at a sold-out event. This year we have upsized the venue, and we expect to issue over 500 tickets! As Australian proptech’s ‘night of nights,’ it’s so exciting to celebrate the success stories and highlight some incredible innovation across the entire real estate value chain,” said Davis.
PropHero, the AI-enabled digital property investment platform that helps people find, buy and manage investment properties, was named the Startup Proptech of the Year at the 2o22 awards.
Davis said companies will be judged against their peers in terms of company size, resources, and innovation maturity.
Startups, scale-ups, and established suppliers can enter for awards in eight industry verticals, amid 24 individual awards in total for: Efficiency & Optimisation; Sales & Marketing; Property & Facilities Management; Ownership, Affordability & Finance; Consumer Proptech; Design, Build & Development; Environment Social & Sustainability (previously Smart Buildings & Cities), and Data, Analytics, Insights & AI.
An additional four open awards will recognise: Corporate Proptech of the Year, Proptech Leader of the Year, VC & Accelerator Program of the Year, and Proptech to Watch.
This year there will also be five “Best of the Best” awards judged from winners and finalists across the field of all entrants: Startup Proptech of the Year, Scale-up Proptech of the Year, Established Supplier Proptech of the Year, Commercial Proptech of the Year, and Residential Proptech of the Year.
