Property Technology or “Proptech”, a term nowadays commonly used, is an emerging sector in the technology space where entrepreneurs, incubators, accelerators, and now corporate property players are looking for technology that making improvements on the ways dealing with the property.


Just like Airbnb in hospitality business and Uber in transportation business, now the property sector is getting its dose of the so-called digital "disruption", especially on the property mortgage and finance.


In some countries, the introduction of real estate crowdfunding (“RECF”) has allowed for accredited individuals to invest in income producing real estate projects from a large number of people, "the crowd".  This kind of ways for real estate owners to secure financing for projects is a great alternative to traditional mortgages and bridge loans.  RECF is somehow a way out for the real estate owners, investors and landlords/ developers to secure a mortgage/ finance, outside of traditional financing.


This workshop will focus on the following issues:-

  • What/Why/How on real estate crowdfunding ("RECF")
  • Current market landscape of RECF
  • Legal framework on RECF
  • Development and outlook of RECF in Asia
