Are large investment rounds hindering or helping PropTechs?

'The Big Question' Debate

Our monthly in-person debate series continues with our next discussion: Are large investment rounds hindering or helping PropTechs?

The last few years has seen a lot of investment come through for the PropTech industry in the UK, in 2021 Pi Labs reported there was approximately £1.6 billion of investment into the sector, a 360% increase from the £347.79 million seen in 2020. Has this investment helped companies grow and scale or has this created a false sense of security resulting in the demise of some PropTechs?

Raising investment is more than securing funds, it's a process of finding the right VC that understands your product and solution, your business goals and an alignment in ambition to achieve these goals. Companies that have previously secured funding haven't always seen success due to the lack of guidance and strategy in place on how to utilise this funding. It has also created a false perception and possible bias towards these companies leading to decisions that have hindered growth. Alternatively there are companies that have gone through successful rounds of funding and scaled over the years, so is investment ultimately helping PropTechs and how do they get it right in order to succeed?

Join us for this interactive event where our panel of experts will debate on key topics within the industry. We'll be asking your thoughts through our polling system on Slido to find out which side of the discussion you are leaning towards ahead of the event and, once the debate has come to a conclusion, will you remain on side or can you be persuaded to change your option based on the outcome of the event? Let's find out!

Our 'The Big Question' debate series is also an opportunity to network over drinks and meet our panel in person following the live debate.
