#PropTechDen shines with a full house at the Google Campus London

The Inaugural #PropTechDen took place at London’s Google Campus with what was a full house of speakers, judges and audience (the event was already double booked and had a reserve list of many wishing to pitch their start up companies in the world of proptech). Contact us if you would like to sponsor the forthcoming event in July.

A big thanks goes out to Campus London for not only allowing us to hold the event at their venue, but also for upgrading our room at the last minute from a smaller space on the third floor to the main hall area on the ground floor – It made all the difference as many people with entry tickets and others who chanced their luck at the door enjoyed a busy opening networking event where key industry names were on show, innovative ideas shared and business cards exchanged.

The line up of businesses pitching had already been selected and had travelled far and wide to attend and showcase their concepts including Anna from ShowWorx who had arrived from Ireland. From Brighton, Midlands, Wales, Oxford and just two stops down the Central Line, #PropTechDen had brought people together, initiated new relationships, got minds thinking and opened doors of opportunities.

I know exactly what it is like to enter a totally new industry with no contacts yet desperately trying to show people something new, something innovative and hoping that someone will give me the chance to demonstrate my product / service. I have done the walking up the high street and walking in to estate agents and suffering rejections, attending property events and standing alone with a too innovative an idea to be worthy of bringing into any conversation. This experience led me to create #PropTechDen, a project that will enable those looking for investors and partners to pitch to a panel of judges who are actively looking for new trends in the industry and bring together an audience who are keen to learn and network in this industry sector. This saves everyone time and gives all a one stop platform to reach the people that matter to their success going forward” Christopher Walkey, Founder of #PropTechDen.

The evening’s pitches were:

Veritii.com by Richard Williams

Chimni by Nigel Walley

Dlighted.co.uk by Ajay Jagota

ShowWorx by Anna Downes

The set up was simple, each person who was pitching their brand had 25 minutes to both explain to everyone their business concept in anyway they wished from slideshow to videos to demonstrating live their products. During that time they also needed to fit in questions from the judges and if time permitted, from the audience too. Unlike the Dragons Den from television that many of us will know well the format of, no cash was on any table at #PropTechDen, though if an interest in finding out more was expressed then contact details were shared.

The evening was a great success for all concerned and of course feedback on how we can improve things is invited and we are pleased to say that already many emails have been received with ideas to how things can be bettered even further which each point we will most certainly consider.

Going forward, #PropTechDen will now take place at Google Campus London every two to three months with a fresh list of those pitching. If you would like to be involved in pitching your business, judging or simply sitting in the audience and watching the evening’s events, then please contact Christopher via:
