Etienne Jeoffroy
Founder & CEO, FenX

In this discussion, we would like to discuss the challenges facing construction and real estate in the context of innovation and sustainability, and the resulting opportunities for startup innovation in the world’s largest asset class. Among other things, Circular Economy business models and their impact on traditional and inefficient processes will be highlighted and discussed. What trends emerge on the intersection of #proptech and cleantech? Which ESG criteria does the real estate industry look at? How is circular economy interpreted? Which business models show first signs of superiority? Which proptechs and cleantechs in Switzerland should be watched? These questions will be answered by representatives of proptech / cleantech startups, corporates and VC investors in this discussion.
