first_imgPrint Twitter Having looked at Limerick in their first two games of the National Hurling League the only area that John Kiely will be honing in on is their mental attitude and the top two inches.Obviously, they were lacking that in the first half against Tipperary, second half very good.

This investment is particularly pertinent given our focus on shaping our firm’s future in its 125th year.”Fifth Wall co-founder Brendan Wallace adds: “The collision taking place between tech and real estate is complicated and Fifth Wall was founded with the intention of helping firms like Knight Frank define and accelerate their tech adoption strategy.”Read: Why proptech  has had its ‘lockdown moment’ during Covid. March 23, 2021Nigel LewisOne commentAndrew Stanton, CEO Proptech-PR Real Estate Influencer & Journalist CEO Proptech-PR Real Estate Influencer & Journalist 23rd March 2021 at 11:41 amThe whole real estate/proptech universe is still at an early stage, forward investment will de-risk some entities, but a wary eye needs to be kept on the capabilities of 5G and satellite technology which just might blind-side all stakeholders as new ecosystems evolve. Maturity of the proptech sector in the UK is another five to seven years way, and in reality the real big problems are just being grappled with. The only certainty in the world map of Proptech, with London only second to New York in the proliferation of Proptech start-ups is nothing is certain. At present around the world the real estate sector is pouring investment into: – Artificial Intelligence (AI), Big Data, Building Information Modelling (BIM), Internet of Things (IOT), Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR) and the Shared economy. And then as a bit of a side bet, it is spreading the capital around on anything else that is scalable and might be the next big thing. What is certain is the unstoppable move from analogue to digital – everything else is just noise.Log in to ReplyWhat’s your opinion?
