Proptech” is a rapidly progressing area of technology that is beginning to develop solutions to address long-standing pain points in real estate. Technology is gradually moving the real estate industry away from a manual and paperwork-heavy process and towards a streamlined and efficient system where steps can be simplified and automated.


Real estate constitutes over 50% of the world's assets. Housing is a vital human need, and the commercial property sector delivers and manages the infrastructure needed for entrepreneurship to flourish. In this training, we will focus on PropTech that refers to businesses using technology to disrupt and improve the way we buy, rent, sell, manage, and design residential and commercial properties.



Tokenization is an application of blockchain technology that is rapidly attracting interest from the real estate market all over the world. It aims to reduce the administrative process and cost in real estate processes by leveraging blockchain technology and smart contracts.



In the second part of this workshop, we will go beyond the buzzwords to help you understand the value added by technology. We will further delve into the concept of blockchain and tokenization as applied in real estate.
