We are launching the PropTech Championship, the first business championship of its kind
Skanska Commercial Development Nordic and PropTech Sweden are coming together to launch a PropTech Championship where the winner will be awarded an innovation contract with Skanska.
The real estate and construction industry are facing rapid change in needs from the market as well as more ambitious company and industry goals. Increased digitalization and new innovative solutions are needed to stay relevant in meeting the stricter climate targets and client demands.

- We believe that in order to deliver on our promise to the market and society we need to accelerate within digitalization and innovation. Within the PropTech community there are agile and fast-growing companies with whom I do believe we can make impact and drive development within our focus areas carbon neutrality, smart & connected buildings, and the future office",saysHenrik Ahnström, Director of Innovation at Skanska Commercial Development Nordic.
