We use a powerful method of sharing - post #GoldenInfoNuggets on Social Media multiple times daily or in regular emails (every 5-15 days).  We’ve been sharing the essence of articles and a few powerful comments regularly.* 

Commercial Real Estate, Technology, Blockchain & AI


Andreas Senie (11 years - sales, real estate) and Jim Fried (34 years - business, real estate) talk cutting edge CRE tech re CRE Collaborative Inc's Integrated #Broker / #Investor / #Developer / #Lender / #ServiceProfessional #Platform - EARLY ACCESS at Lnkd.in/dedFk_p. It is "a 2.0 Technology Market Network integrating real estate #professionals, real estate #data, and technology. Think Kayak's 'Search One & Done' for the commercial real estate industry. It is the industry’s first 2.0 platform that aggregates real estate data and technology in one place – the only platform providing #transparency between the #silos of data and technology." #CRE #Technology #Business; edited; recording Lnkd.in/eQEpGv9.


Justin Wu (18 years - software, crypto, blockchain) commented on #MALTA to be #BLOCKCHAIN ISLAND.  At "The Malta Blockchain Summit," 11/2018, "Prime Minister hails #CryptoCurrency as the 'Future of Money,' and will 'filter good businesses from bad businesses.' Bittrex, Binance and more have moved to Malta. Seems like the spot for banking, security tokenization, and exchanges. #Bittrex, #Binance and more have moved to Malta - THE spot for #banking, #security #tokenization and #exchanges."  Forbes@Gerald Fenech continues, "Malta's backing has created a haven for crypto companies to flourish, and to earn its title as the 'Blockchain Island.' The Maltese parliament passed 3 regulatory bills in July, with the goal of driving #innovation and setting up a #regulatory #framework for blockchain companies to operate."  #Technology #Analysis #Business #Data #Science #PropTech #Research #Expansion #Investment #SmallBusiness #Startup; edited; Wu's comment Lnkd.in/gb4eDvV; next summit Lnkd.in/gWpFQ9S; Forbes Lnkd.in/gkUk5h2Lnkd.in/gpc9Wes.

Michael Beckerman (29 years - public relations, real estate).  "UNDERSTANDING #CRE #BLOCKCHAIN 101.  Blockchain technology is the new buzzword in CRE despite having its foundation in #cryptocurrency like #Bitcoin.   For #brokers who barely understand cryptocurrency, the idea of applying the concept underlying virtual currency to CRE seems overly complex, so here we try to make it as simple as possible to understand."  (#Technology #AI  #Business #PropTech #FinTech #SmallBusiness #Startup; edited - Lnkd.in/exZsytK):
  • "Everything You Need in One Virtual Package"
  • "The 'Bitcoin' of Commercial Real Estate Blockchain Technology"
  • "Challenges Facing Blockchain Adoption in CRE."

Markus Fischer (11 years - consultant, technology) noted Christina Doll (13 years - engineering, GIS) interview with Ralf Glabischnig (21 years - finance, entrepreneur).  "#BLOCKCHAIN - GAME CHANGER in the #REALESTATE #MARKET" (#CRE #Switzerland; edited; original comment Lnkd.in/eiW-TYS; translated version Lnkd.in/eVU3d4p; interview Lnkd.in/ed4QSps):
  • "Blockchain is changing the #financial world - to what extent is Blockchain relevant to Real Estate?  ‘It's particularly predestined for the use of Blockchain - for the #Internet of values.’
  • "What #trends are emerging in this regard for the Swiss real estate market? ‘1. Today - increasing #efficiency 2. Short-term - process #innovation 3. Medium term - #financing.’
  • "Blockchain as a #gamechanger – ‘All companies and institutions in the market should do an in-depth #examination of blockchain #technology to understand its impact on the current business model - #brokers, financial #institutions, #notaries or even #rental #platforms.’
  • "What fascinates you most about Blockchain?  ‘#Groundbreaking #changes in corporate and business models that enable the use of #DistributedLedger #technologies.’” 

Jeff Jacobson (36 years - law, labor, business) of LaSalle Investment Management and Richard Bloxam (10 years - CRE capital) of JLL reported. "HOW #TECHNOLOGY is DRIVING #TRANSPARENCY in #CRE. From buildings filled with sensors tracking employees, to software that monitors reams of leasing documents, new technologies rapidly flourish, and they share a common output: #data ... #BIGdata promising huge leaps forward for the real estate industry, and [we predict] greater transparency, especially in markets where information remains tightly held. We’ve gotten used #tech #tracking everything from our health to our relationships, raising the bar in terms of what we expect. Significant change is coming: 250+ #PropTech #startups have raised $Bs around the world. [Will look at] 'Transparency through technology' and 'Long-term promise.'" (#2019predictions #Blockchain #Analysis #Business #Research #Expansion #Investment #SmallBusiness; edited - Lnkd.in/ehtaVeU):
  • "Transparency Through Technology. #USA, #Netherlands, #Canada and others boasting high levels of CRE transparency, embraced #PropTech. But in #China, #Dubai, #Mexico, #Brazil, #Egypt, #Argentina, #Estonia and other where #data #coverage may be less extensive, #blockchain and brokerage #apps will significantly boost, even #leapfrog, transparency. Transparancy #innovations also include: #listing websites, #transaction records and property #registries. This could lead to greater global standardization in all areas relating to property, from city #planning to #environmental #reports.". Lnkd.in/e6H4e8N
  • "LONG-TERM PROMISE, SHORT-TERM PROBLEMS. Accurately monitoring real estate markets requires high-quality insights from strong #DataSets - poor quality is a natural side effect of #scraping online sources. #Ownership of information is also a key concern. Property #owners and #managers can collect vast amounts of [private] data on #tenants through sensors, internet-linked #devices and #video feeds. Tightly-held data could limit the broader benefits of new tools on wider market transparency. Improvements continue to be made but #investors and corporate #occupiers are demanding ever higher levels of disclosure.” Lnkd.in/eccXc-2

Yves Mulkers (17 years - high-tech consultant, entrepreneur).  EMBEDDED #ANALYTICS - KEY #DIFFERENTIATOR to #DATA-DRIVEN #ORGANIZATIONS.  "Data is everywhere, but unfortunately #access, #insights and direct #feedback take a longsome and tedious #process to have your decisions backed by #facts based on the data you produce.  Over the last decade, technology development has helped organizations to respond swiftly to #market events, but not yet #fast and #flexible enough.  (#Technology #DeepLearning #Analysis #Business #Data #Science #Research #Expansion #Investment; edited - Lnkd.in/e4QM6S8):
  • ANALYTICS ALL OVER the #APPLICATION #STACK.  "We recently saw a live #demo, of how an approval form was built on the fly with zero to no #coding, selecting the data sets needed and defining security, all based on analytics and metadata, available in the SAP Corporation cloud platform, integrating business #processes, #data, #security, #analytics, #infrastructure and #scalability. Looking at the #roadmap, it becomes clear how, analytics will be available at every step in your business process, and everywhere in your business."  Lnkd.in/eQMTVKH
  • MODELING with an ALL-IN-ONE, #INTEGRATED #DATABASE. "#SAPhana database and #SAPdataHub provide #agile modelling, #spatial #intelligence, embedded #analytics, #streaming and #realtime analytics and strong data #management, on live business data within the same system and using the same data model. #IT #landscapes also become simpler as it is no longer necessary to move business data to an external system for #DataAnalysis.  [Reducing #silos and #duplication of effort and data-#quality/#accuracy analysis/checks.] We are moving into a #DigitalSociety with data everywhere these days. Bringing the insights from this data where they bring value stays a challenge.  #SAP is helping companies digitally #transform and become data driven.  Other interviews available on 'Leonardo, a methodology for disruptive technologies' and 'Embedded Analytics and Data Management'"  Lnkd.in/ef5uRES 

Brock Freeman (13 years - finance, entreprener) noted Tinus Bang Christensen (21 years - accounting, finance) and Jan-Willem Santing (15 years - accounting, finance) of Deloitte Luxembourg:  #BLOCKCHAIN in #CRE #MATURES - #USE CASES to PRACTICAL #APPLICATIONs (#2019predictions #RealEstate #WeChangeTheIndustry #CRE #Technology #Analysis #Business #Data #Science #PropTech #FinTech #Research #Expansion #Investment #SmallBusiness #Startup; edited - Lnkd.in/eewVUBE):  
  • "With a dedicated focus on blockchain for real estate we are glad to share key principles and guidelines for industry #players put together by Deloitte, as the next wave of blockchain #solutions.  
  • 'The upcoming year will be all about #ecosystem #innovation, with essential exchange of knowledge between industry leaders, blockchain experts and stakeholders.  While adjustments and improvements of the technology are needed — and must not be underestimated — the most critical factor in blockchain’s success in the real estate industry will be the ability to take a wide-lens perspective on your blockchain #strategy that goes beyond your own innovation to create alignment among partners who must work together.'"

Commercial Real Estate and Business

Don Catalano (30 years - real estate). NEW-#OFFICE ACQUISITION #RESEARCH. "Before #lease or #purchase, thoroughly #analyze and #consult #experts (#CRE #Business #Data #PropTech #Research #Expansion #Investment #SmallBusiness #Startup; edited - Lnkd.in/emdgJCG):
  • "#Assess Future #Space #Needs - having a larger-than-necessary office is better than running out of space. #Overcrowded offices #worker #engagement and #productivity.
  • "#Buy Later - if Starting up, even the next #Unicorn, keep #costs minimal. [It will take #cash down and #CashFlow to qualify, and you don't want to #burn your #operating #capital.]"
  • However, it may be smart to buy if you have assets you can parlay into a building that you can #rent to other strong, perhaps #complementary businesses paying for your space AND ALL POSSIBLE BUILDING #EXPENSES without distracting much from your #mission, go ahead.
  • "CHOOSING the RIGHT #LOCATION. Indeed, the factors to consider when deciding on the choice of location are quite subjective. Beyond the #traffic patterns and the neighborhood #demographics, there are more salient factors to consider (many businesses have failed because they are located in the wrong place) - Proximity to where your employees #live; #Amenities in the building and also what is nearby; Expansion #space availability; #Safety and #security of the location.
  • "#SEARCH BEYOND PUBLIC LISTINGS. There are hundreds of amazing properties that are not publicly available on #listing #websites - you may be missing amazing property opportunities that suit your business best. #TenantRep #Brokers - who know your #industry well - can help. [Interview them like you would a specialized employee.] Lnkd.in/ddkAYkf
  • "#RATIONAL PURCHASE. Avoid letting your emotions influence your buying decisions. Your purchase has to be #strategic by considering #location, historical #performance and property’s #size.
  • "#ANALYZE ONGOING and UPFRONT COSTS. Factor all the running and future costs into your buying decision. Failure to pay attention to the upfront and ongoing costs could negatively affect your business’ bottom line." Lnkd.in/g_NuSCE

Alejandro Cremades (14 years - law, finance, entrpreneur).  WAYS to #MEET #INVESTORS.  "Those places which you can use for your own #capital-#raising efforts.  [Make sure your take a great 1-2 page #Overview (with #mission, #market, #MANAGEMENT and #Money (#financial #projections) Lnkd.in/eVUscBM, WITHOUT an #investment #offer), have superior qualifying #questions and capture enough information to FOLLOW UP gently but regularly].  (#Technology #Analysis #Data #Research #Expansion #Investment #SmallBusiness #Startup; edited - Lnkd.in/eNqPUnh):

John Gabbert (22 years - venture capital, publishing) of PitchBook Data: "In '2019 Private #VentureCapital Outlook,' our #analysts review the predictions they made nearly 12 months ago, comparing them against what actually transpired, and then lay out their #forecast for the key forces that will drive the global VC market in the year to come. #2019predictions (#Business #Data #Research #Expansion #Investment #Startup; report has many graphics; clean, clear presentation; very useful reference; expect a call from the nearest coast to subscribe you to their 5-figure/year platform; picture credit, Getty Images; edited - Lnkd.in/dCdmKpj):
  • "#IPOs as a proportion of total VC exit value will hit another decade high.
  • New #participants in VC will continue to proliferate.
  • Median early-stage #valuation step-ups will hit 2.0x in 2019.
  • Median #angel & #seed deal size will continue to climb.
  • Growth in median #fund size will decelerate.
  • #Banks will back more institutional blockchain solutions."
