The hand-selected companies will pitch their innovative business ideas to industry insiders for a chance to accelerate their future.

LAB Ventures – the Miami-based company that ideates new tech businesses and then develops them from scratch in partnership with highly-motivated entrepreneurs – has selected the 10 startup finalists to advance in the Global Startup Pitch Competition that will take place at the Future of Real Estate Tech Summit 2019. During the event on May 14, finalists will have an opportunity to propose their unique concepts to a panel of judges, comprised of executives from Colliers International, Related Group, Krillion Ventures, Plug and Play, and Metro1, for a chance at first place and catching the eye of savvy investors and potential customers. Finalists are also invited to participate in one-on-one meetings with top-tier investors and executives from companies like Building Ventures, JLL Spark, Moderne Ventures, Bozzuto, Suffolk Construction, and many more.
