‘Dragons’ will sit on a new property innovation council announced yesterday by current housing minister Esther McVey.
McVey unveiled the advisory council – largely aimed at new homes – during a visit to the Geovation offices which host a number of tech start-ups.
McVey met entrepreneurs to discuss how to “turbo-charge” the way in which technology is used to speed up the building and selling of homes.
Property entrepreneur Faisal Butt, founder and CEO of Pi Labs, a venture capital firm supporting others to innovate in the sector, will be the first expert to sit on the minister’s new council.
McVey also met Babek Ismayil, founder of OneDome, which links home buyers with estate agents, mortgage brokers and conveyancers.
