Startups, Sustainability, Young Leaders, Women in Real Estate and more at MIPIM Day 2

MIPIM Day 2 started with important topics that drive the real estate industry including new startups, sustainability, Young Leaders, Women in Real Estate, workspaces, future cities, metro mayors, millenials and urbanisation.

MIPIM Startup Competition was held in the second day of the event and the world’s most innovative real estate startups were celebrated on the Grand Auditorium stage, for the final round of the MIPIM Startup Competition. 

The six finalists, gathered from semi-finals in Paris, Hong Kong and New York, were District, a  platform not just for coworking, but for all types of shared living spaces; Neoma, which has developed Gaia, an AI designed for helping hotel staff predict guests’ needs; onTarget, whose automated building site service can detect accidents, or automatically recommending to hire more workers should progress slow; Sensorberg, which uses a sensor-based system for digitising buildings, for example for unlocking doors; Spaceti, which uses data via sensors to analyse and improve office utilisation rates; and Tatami, a modular buiding system.

The other panel titled "Young Leaders Summit" was held in the second day of the event. Young Leaders are the spearheads of the new urban lifestyles that the real estate industry wants to promote. 

"Building the city of tomorrow brings about questions about sustainability, what the impact of the new technologies will be on city design, environmental change, divergence, digital, and the value of networks. Hence this crucial new track at MIPIM 2019," reported by Global Real Estate Experts

"Divergence can come from the way we function within the system. What is a fair economic model? By 2050, 70% of the worlds population will be urban. We have to adapt and stay agile," Sabine Desnault from of Gecina opened the summit. 

"The challenge is to link our know how: as the solution will ultimately be in our coordination. We can no longer ignore climate change and environmental change in our business strategies. To succeed in transformation we must do two things: think differently by listening to needs, and work differently by integrating many new competencies."

This was followed by a panel discussion with some innovative  discussion surrounding cities: "At Schindler, when we imagine the city of tomorrow, we often think about collaboration. In fact, we like to call it ‘collaboraction’ ; we believe this is the key component of ‬innovation within cities," said Alexander Ozbahadir.

World Architecture Community is official Media Partner for this year's MIPIM and will be bringing you all the highlights & key sessions from the four-day event this March.
