      PropTech Without Purpose, Don't Buy It

      In CRE as in life, technology is not a silver bullet; it does not solve all problems. Without a plan and purpose in mind, technology can create inefficiency and sub-optimal outcomes. So how do you harness PropTech and deliver powerful, real results? Join HqO’s Co-Founder and CEO, Chase Garbarino, as he calls out the misalignments that can drive stress in the relationship between PropTech and CRE owners, and create disconnected experiences for building occupants. Instead of simply equating technology with efficiency, he asks us to map technology to specific results for businesses and for people. You’ll leave this talk knowing what it takes to create “purpose at your place”.
