The Housing Innovation Summit has always been a forum for startups and industry to connect, share ideas, and explore business opportunities. Up-and-comers have secured strategic advisors + advocates, demonstration partners, and multimillion-dollar investors and have even been acquired after meeting through the Alliance.
We’re proud of the matches we’ve made so far and will get more attendees involved in the action at this year’s event through Pitchfest – a competition where we’ll explore opportunities for innovation across three categories.
On Day 2 (April 26, 2023) of the Housing Innovation Summit, attendees will have the ability to change their scenery and their mindset by choosing their program: Innovation in Action Tours or Pitchfest.
