Quick-start guide

It’s time to get started with the PropTech Challenge - presented by REBNY! Once you have officially registered (if you haven’t done so already) we’ll be sending you regular updates throughout the competition. Submissions are due by October 16, 2018 at 5:00pm ET.

  1. Get set up right. Decide what software you will be developing.  Remember to keep the submission requirements and categories in mind!  
  2. Get a head start on your submission. Fill out the basic fields on the application form and familiarize yourself with the submission requirements. This will give you a good idea of what you'll need to put together. Remember: you can edit your submission as many times as you like before the deadline.
  3. Optional: Form a team. Thinking about collaborating with another developer or startup? Visit the participants page to find and meet teammates. You can see who else is looking for a teammate, check out what’s in their portfolio, and send them a message to connect.  Consider signing up for the competition Slack channel, too, where you can also meet and chat with other hackers.
  4. Optional: Keep in the social media loop.  Follow the PropTech Challenge on Twitter

We’re looking forward to seeing your cutting-edge, problem-solving software for NYC’s real estate industry.  Good Luck!
