Home  /  About Disruptech

NASSCOM - CBRE DISRUPTECH is India’s biggest Real Estate PropTech challenge aimed to expand the footprint of technology in the sector. Envisioned by CBRE India, this platform seeks to identify sectoral opportunities that can be leveraged through the adoption of technology to offer long-lasting solutions. It will also look at pre-empting an array of possible disruptions to keep the industry ahead of the innovation curve in the world of property-technology or 'PropTech'.

A recent survey by CBRE further reinforces the rapid pace at which digitization is taking precedence across the sector. More than 90% of the occupiers and developers are aiming to bring a technological shift in their business operations within the next five years. Digitization has resulted in a more coherent relationship between developers and occupiers; the former is fine tuning their strategies to be in line with occupier’s expectations on technology and infrastructure.

For an industry as diverse as infrastructure, technology holds the key to transform the way we envision, develop and deploy real estate. To augment this opportunity, the NASSCOM - CBRE DISRUPTECH is designed to identify, mentor and develop the best technology solutions that will enable the Indian real estate industry to take a quantum leap over the coming years. Through this platform, we seek to uplift those emerging businesses which have the potential to transform the real estate landscape with technology-driven, creative, innovative and disruptive thinking

Our Aim

The NASSCOM - CBRE DISRUPTECH aims to identify budding start-ups working towards innovating and building technology solutions for the real estate sector.
