What is PropTech Africa?

What We Do?

PropTech Africa connects the PropTech ecosystem in Africa in order to create meaningful interactions and relationships. At the same time, we promote the PropTech sector to the property industry and related stakeholders as a whole in order to raise awareness and drive growth on the continent.

Who We Are?

The PropTech Africa Association is passionate about the African continent and the opportunities its property markets hold. They bring valuable insight to the table that is based on experience in financial services, property development, property research, PropTech platform development and extensive travel across the continent and globally.

How We Operate?

We aim to connect and promote the sector through regular events, media & industry interaction, conferences and focussed advocacy. We encourage the community to get involved in the work we do, and we welcome all suggestions, ideas and potential partnerships that will aid in growing awareness and the success of the PropTech ecosystem in Africa.
