»Digitalisation has even entered the real estate industry and in the following years it will be changed by disruptive business models from founders and service providers. From this, the usual practice of business processes with regards to information technology and data streams will be radically changed. Founders, service providers, as well as tech-companies have the chance to take these changes into their own hands. For this, the Real Estate Innovation Network (REIN) offers an excellent forum for the exchange of ideas, inspiration, and collaboration. Even with over 20 years of digitalisation experience, the fascination of change through IT has not lost its charm for me.«
