There are many opportunities for investment in proptech, especially for the industrial sector, where tech-related tools for commercial real estate are still emerging and finding their place in the industry
April 26, 2019
“Proptech” has become a ubiquitous term in recent years, especially as it finds its way into nearly every discussion about the future of commercial real estate. Yet while many property types and asset classes have been benefiting from a spectrum of innovations in technology (e.g., sensor technology or beacons), the industrial and logistics asset class has not experienced the same level of interest or scale yet. Things are changing, however, and a new proptech focus will most likely bring the opportunity to implement new technologies that could change considerably how warehouses and distribution centers operate throughout the world.
