AskPorter acts as a digital assistant for agents, property managers, and landlords by eliminating mundane tasks.

The platform provides an omni-channel point of communication to all stakeholders, from occupants to contractors, with every interaction logged, tracked and searchable.

Mayordomo acts as a butler through the use of an intelligent locker system. The points receive packages on behalf of people in their places of work and where they live, with other uses including dry cleaning services.

During the startup’s live pitch, COO Tom Selva claimed the system can save an average of 45 minutes per delivery, and revealed the startup made €1.4m revenue made in year one.

Other finalists will be chosen throughout the year, with stage two will taking place at MIPIM PropTech New York, with stage three in Hong Kong during MIPIM Asia, before concluding at MIPIM in Cannes in 2020.


Waste management startup Sensoneo claimed first prize in the final of the PropTech Startup Europe Awards, hosted at MIPIM PropTech in Paris.

The Slovakia-based tech company is on a mission to help cities and companies manage their waste cost efficiently whilst improving environments for people.

The company has developed a cloud-based platform which allows customers to configure, monitor and manage daily waste.

Using smart sensors combined with software, the tool provides real-time waste monitoring and suggests optimal collection routes, and semi-automate navigation.

Sensoneo claims to reduce waste collection costs by 30% and carbon emission by 60%.

Supported by the European Commission and implemented by the Finnova Foundation, EU PropTech House and Workero, the awards are aimed at identifying local models in every business ecosystem in Europe, to provide visibility and support to the most promising and innovative startups in real estate.

Second place went to Mapple, which uses modelling and AI technology to help cities handle rapidly increasing urbanisation by providing analytics; third place going to Sensorberg, which digitises buildings using a sensor-based system, that is open and hardware agnostic.
