We received more than 300 nominations, and I couldn’t be prouder of every worthy professional that was put forth for recognition.”

Added Greenberg: “In particular, we’re excited to be building a platform that is fostering the next wave of female entrepreneurship to encourage more women to take on founder and leadership roles in PropTech.”
