Future of Real Estate

Avison-Young Challenge: How is technology reinventing the way we live and work?

October 11, 2018 - Oakland, CA

About


Welcome to SplashX - Future of Real Estate, a quarterly twilight salon-styled tech talk and mixer produced by Vator, where valuable lessons and insights are shared by investors, founders, and C-level executives from healthtech startups. Splash Chats are one-hour of pure, raw wisdom about a particular topic.

In this case, the topic is the “The future of real estate.” Real estate makes up 13 percent of GDP. It’s also one area that’s not been transformed, like media and commerce have in the last two decades. Now is the time for technology to revinent real estate, whether it’s how we buy, rent, invest, sell, remodel, and secure homes and property, or how and where we work. We’re living in fascinating times!

Join Vator’s Bambi Francisco and Avison-Young’s Anthony Shell, our co-hosts for the event.

Vator (short for innovator) is a vibrant startup and investor community, founded by veteran, award-winning business journalist, Bambi Francisco.

Splash is Vator’s large startup and investor festival and one of the most popular pitch competitions in the U.S.

SplashX is Vator’s intimate Splash by night, a tech talk series and mixer where top influencers, entrepreneurs, and investors share insights on what's trending and valuable lessons on fundraising, building, and scaling a startup.

Launched in 2010 in San Francisco, Splash events, competitions, and verticals, such as Splash Health, Post Seed, and SplashX have expanded to NY, LA, London, and Oakland.

Splash is one of the best startup competitions and educational events, attracting super smart thought leaders in the tech industry. It's an event that inspires. This is an event for entrepreneurs who want to learn how to innovate, raise money, and scale a company. It's also a place for new investors to learn about angel investing and established ones to sharpen their game.
