At PlaceTech’s second annual dinner, more than 200 professionals from property and tech came together at the Millennium Gloucester Hotel for a lively evening of celebration and networking.
Development site appraisal tool, Urban Intelligence, and property management system, Fixflo, were crowned winners of this year’s PlaceTech Startup Prize and PlaceTech Prize.
Mike Edge, partner at Mills & Reeve, presented the PlaceTech Startup Prize to Urban Intelligence. Urban Intelligence’s analytics software SiteScore allows users to explore thousands of sites for their development potential, based on individual characteristics and capacity.
Founded in 2014, Urban Intelligence was conceived by founder Daniel Mohamed whilst working as a planning consultant and studying urban regeneration at UCL. The company’s services are aimed at property developers and those working around the UK to identify and appraise land and its planning potential.
Doug Ward, co-CEO of Node, presented the PlaceTech Prize to Fixflo, which enables tenants to report repairs for their property via a smartphone or computer. Property managers can manage work orders, schedule planned maintenance, contact landlords and instruct contractors in one central hub.
Fixflo was founded in 2013 by former property lawyer Rajeev Nayyar and former CTO of social network Friends Reunited, Duncan Careless. The idea for Fixflo came to Nayyar when he was living in New Zealand and experiencing the twin pains of both being a tenant whilst also being a long-distance landlord of a property in England.
