MERLIN PROPERTIES JOINS ISDI ACCELERATOR TO
REVOLUTIONIZE THE PROPTECH SECTOR.
We have designed the MERLIN Proptech Challenge as a bridge program between Startup Acceleration and Corporate Innovation.
MERLIN PropTech Challenge powered by ISDI Accelerator is a challenge aimed to creating added value services for the real estate industry and all its stakeholders. The challenge supports 9 startups with up to €20,000 per company plus training, mentoring and a corporate Demo Day.
The ISDI Accelerator team works together with MERLIN Properties to implement an open innovation model, supported by success cases and pilot programs with startups from all over Europe. These collaborations forms the base from which change is launched and provides valuable insights that can be applied to future strategic decisions.
As Nacho de Pinedo, CEO of ISDI points out: “We have designed the MERLIN Proptech Challenge as a bridge program between Startup Acceleration and Corporate Innovation”. On the one hand, MERLIN Properties has been exposed in a very short period of time to an extraordinary contribution of innovation by more than 200 startups throughout Europe, which has served as inspiration, knowledge of potential suppliers and eventually will also result in shareholding in some of them. On the other hand, entrepreneurs have come into contact with the leader of their category, who tomorrow can become a potential customer or the best strategic partner. It is a win-win for both worlds.”
