ReCoTech Review – An Overview of Nordic Property Tech

ReCoTech is an official side event for Europe’s biggest startup gathering, Slush. A full house of real estate and construction tech enthusiasts assembled on the last day of November in Helsinki. After the morning presentations, 300 meetings between established companies and startups took place in just two hours.

I did 20 interviews with thought leaders, industry practitioners, and startups for the event’s  publication, ReCoTech Review. My company, AE Partners, produced the print and audio versions of the magazine.
