apti award 2020🏆
For the second time the Austrian PropTech Initiative (apti) was looking for the best real estate start-up – this year in the two categories Early Stage and Later Stage. Now the winners have been determined: Ampeers Energy in the category “Early Stage” and twingz in the category “Later Stage”!
twingz – winners in the category “Later Stage
All finalists had a total of 8 minutes each to present their innovative business concept, answer any questions they might have, and face the top-class jury. CEO Werner Weihs-Sedivy presented the twingz Machine Learning and Predictive Analytics Engine, which makes useful information from the data streams of various sensors and providers available to humans, and convinced the expert jury in the category “Later Stage”.
The jury included the two well-known business angels Rudi Fries and Markus Ertler, apti advisory board member Eugen Otto (Otto Immobilien), the journalist Erich Ebenkofler (Die Presse), as well as the two main sponsors Daniel Dworak (willhaben, representing Judith Kössner) and Veronika Ecker (EHL Immobilien, representing Michael Ehlmaier). The international jurors Bryan Lyandvert (MetaProp) and Marie Daubourg (Fifth Wall) could unfortunately not be present due to the Corona Pandemic.
The two winners will receive an advertising budget from the media partners “Die Presse”, “immoflash.at” and “Immobilien Magazin”. In addition, they will receive one of the coveted places in the pitch box of the next “PropTech Vienna” worth 1200€. These and the other finalists (andys.cc, Realest8, metr, Nuki, PriceHubble, and R8tech) will also receive a one-year free membership in the Austrian PropTech Initiative. The audience was also allowed to vote for a winner again! The Start-Up Breeze Technologies wins in the public voting and also gets a place in the Pitch Box of PropTech Vienna.
