Startup competition

Pitch your concept that tackles the real estate sector!

  • For the fourth year, the MIPIM Startup Competition, in partnership with global real estate tech partner MetaProp NYC, will reveal the most promising and innovative startups that tackle the biggest urban challenges around the world.

    The 2019 edition will stop by 3 cities, Paris, New-York, and Hong-Kong, major international hubs for PropTech, where the selected startups will pitch their ideas and business models to move the real estate ecosystem forward.

  • The Competition

    How does it work

    The Startup Competition is made of 3 stops: 1st stop in Paris during MIPIM PropTech Europe 2018, 2nd stop in New York during MIPIM PropTech New York 2018, and 3rd stop in Hong Kong during MIPIM Asia 2018.

    A selecting committee will review all online applications for each stop and will pre-select 6 startups for their capacity to answer real estate challenges and needs. For each stop, the 6 startups pre-selected will pitch their project in front of an audience and a local jury who will select 2 finalists.

    The 2 selected finalists in each city will be in the fast-lane to join the Finals at MIPIM 2019

    Judging criteria

    • The ability to respond to a need in the real estate industry
    • The quality and scalability of the technical innovation
