MIPIM Startup Competition 2020 Edition

Pitch your concept that tackles the real estate sector!

For the fifth 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 MIPIM Startup Competition 2020 edition will stop by 3 cities: Paris during MIPIM PropTech Europe (1-2 July 2019), New York during MIPIM PropTech New York (12-13 November 2019) and Hong Kong during MIPIM Asia (25 to 27 November 2019) major international hubs for PropTech, where the selected startups will pitch their ideas and business models to move the real estate ecosystem forward.

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 2020.
