Egain through to the final in European Proptech Awards!
On June 30, the European Proptech Award semi-finals were held, through a digital event with leaders from around 50 nominated proptech companies around Europe. All companies were allowed to present their activities to a jury made up of representatives from industry-related organizations and companies including Finnova and Workero.
The evaluation of the 50 companies were made on the basis of the criteria social impact, sustainability, technical innovation, business model innovation, and potential problem-solving.
After deliberation, Egain Group was announced as the first company out of a total of 5 to be awarded a final place in the Scaleup category. This is the first time a Swedish company has reached the final.
The final will take place in September in Paris during the MIPIM Proptech Startup and Scaleup Awards 2020 event, which is one of the largest arenas for innovative technology for digitizing real estate in the world. In the final, all finalists will once again be given the chance to present their solution. When the day is over, the winners of the MIPIM Proptech Startup and Scaleup Awards 2020 will be selected, where the winners in the two categories Startup and Scaleup are primarily awarded the honor of being named the most interesting proptech company in Europe in their category.
