Real estate giant Realogy Holdings Corp. announced today that it will host an innovation summit this summer showcasing new tech products and rewarding the most innovative company with a $25,000 award.
The Realogy FWD Innovation Summit, scheduled for June 18, will showcase a number of new industry technology products that the real estate-franchising company will select from a pool of online applicants.
“The real estate industry is gifted with many entrepreneurs creating exciting and breakthrough solutions,” said Alex Perriello, CEO of the Realogy Franchise Group. “The intent of the Realogy FWD Innovation Summit is to provide innovators the opportunity to showcase their big ideas directly to the leaders across the Realogy family of companies, bypassing the time it typically takes them to get their ideas to the decision makers.”
A panel of judges including Perriello, 1000watt consulting co-founders Marc Davison and Brian Boero and other industry leaders will select winners in categories like productivity, marketing, social and customer, Realogy said. From among those winners, Realogy will crown one company the Realogy FWD Innovation Champion and award them $25,000.
