“NabeWise had a great launch in large part because we participated in Startup Alley. We were able to meet hundreds of the most innovative real estate professionals,” said Ann Baldinucci, CEO at NabeWise.

For agents, brokers and franchises who visit Startup Alley it is a way to learn what is around the bend and which new technologies they can add to their business offering to build on their success.

Attendees get an opportunity to test and try out the technology and get special Connect deals on pricing and offers.

Participants in Startup Alley find new customers and build new relationships.

Inman Connect can put new companies on the map.

“Startup Alley got Relola the visibility and exposure we needed at a crucial time in our development. At ICSF we were able to get in front of the right folks at the right time, in an industry that’s all about timing,” said Daniel Avina, Marketing Director of Relola

It is also a way to test product offers, get customer feedback and ideas on improving emerging tech. The feedback entrepreneurs get is invaluable.

“Startup Alley has by far the best investment I made,” said Venkatesh Ganapathy, CEO MoveEasy.
