Hong Kong property tech - Canadian Technology Accelerator

Hong Kong (H.K.) has been crowned the ‘world’s most valuable real estate market’ for the past 11 years with no signs of stopping. Due to the high value of assets, developers and property managers are looking to protect and increase the value of their holdings, as well as heed to calls for more affordable housing. Developers and construction companies have been setting up ‘innovation arms’ to source technologies globally, keen to protect their assets from natural disasters, improve tenant experience, and lower costs for construction. This makes for an attractive opportunity for Canadian technology providers to the real estate sector. This Canadian Technology Accelerator (CTA) program in Hong Kong aims to help Canadian property technology (PropTech) businesses navigate the market and connect with potential partners, buyers, and investors.
