PropTech. The shape of things to come.
The intersection between Real Estate and Technology is ever evolving, presenting both challenges and opportunities to companies, their investors, as well as consumers.
Technology underpins the real estate space in all its forms: from artificial intelligence to smart cities, the adaptation of existing buildings into Tech hubs, the rise in new financial modelling, the emergence of cryptocurrencies and economies shared.
Steady digital and technology disruption is impacting companies across industries and driving M+A as companies face the need for growth to sustain competitiveness. All companies are becoming technology driven, and we blend M+A technical know-how for both public and private companies while understanding the business of tech and real estate.
Real Estate and beyond.
Optimal functionality, efficiency and transparency are the building blocks of this transformation. As it continues, reliable data, the protection of investments and returns, the increasing appetite of venture capital and the rise of AI will continue to drive real estate’s evolution.
As businesses consider how their assets are deployed or how to implement new tools to make sound investment choices, Goodwin’s differentiated depth in both the real estate and technology sectors provides clients with robust and reliable insights throughout the PropTech space.
