MetaProp has had an active presence in Asia Pacific (“APAC”) since 2017. We’ve worked hard to support regional ecosystem development through partnerships with blue chip real estate leaders Mitsui Fudosan, Eugene, Jakarta Setiabudi Internasional, Development Bank of Japan, Ananda, Aju, CapitaLand, Chuo-Nittochi, Sumitomo Corporation, Sumitomo Mitsui Trust Bank, Swire, and others. Perhaps more importantly, we love backing founders who are developing groundbreaking solutions in the region, including breakout Korean startup Dongnae which uses technology to curate a more affordable selection of rental apartments in Korea.  

Earlier this year, in celebration of our 50th PropTech startup in our MetaProp Accelerator Program, we launched the MetaProp Accelerator at Columbia University Regional Alumni Summits in select markets across the US including Los Angeles and Chicago. It is a first-of-its-kind program for founders and investors, which brings MetaProp’s PropTech ecosystem to select markets across the globe. This October, we are heading to select markets in Asia, including Singapore, Tokyo and Seoul.  

Myself, Zach Aarons, Zak Schwarzman, Maureen Waters, and our new APAC leader Satoshi Murakami will be on the ground in several APAC markets to connect with local real estate technology and investment networks in an effort to establish bridges with the best of MetaProp’s global PropTech ecosystem. Our itineraries include exclusive cross-border PropTech workshops, leading international PropTech CEO presentations, ESG/sustainability technology best practices presentations, one-on-one meetings, and international innovation matchmaking events, PropTech “Lunch & Learn” sessions, and even a launch party for the first international translation of best-selling book PropTech 101.

Some of the event sessions are open to local PropTech enthusiasts in each market. If you’d like to meet with us in person while we’re in APAC, let us know. Our team will be in Seoul, Korea on October 12, 2022 and Tokyo on October 19, 2022.
