VIDEO: CRE Slowdown Has Tech Sector Redoubling Efforts 

“The funny thing is that whenever things slow down in the industry is when product and engineering teams have to go faster.” That’s Kevin Mattice, chief product officer at Cherre, on the question of what is occurring in the tech space now that there’s a slowdown in commercial real estate. 

Mattice and other proptech leaders interviewed at the recent CREtech conference in New York told Connect CRE that far from causing a deceleration in their activity, the current market has them firing on all cylinders. Jonathan Ehrlich, COO at artificial intelligence company T2D2, said the recent slowdown “hasn’t affected our investment or development strategies at all.” 

In the video below, you’ll also hear from CEO Emiel Bril at VendorPM and, on the end-user side of the equation, Ilene Goldfine, chief digital officer at Hines. We’ll be presenting more insights from CREtech in the coming days.
