LendInvest, the specialist property lending platform, has launched the search for PropTech world’s most influential people, for the second year running.

The LendInvest PropTech Influencer List aims to recognises the 25 people doing the most to develop the understanding, reach and benefit of PropTech in the global property market. Nominations are open to anyone working in or contributing to PropTech in the UK and overseas. Individuals can nominate themselves, a friend or colleague, or anyone else that they feel has contributed to the support and growth of PropTech over the past year. There is no limit to the amount of times you can vote or number of people you can nominate.

The deadline to vote is Friday, 3 November.

This year, the list has been launched in association with the UK PropTech Association (UKPA) and PropTech evangelist, James Dearsley, who was ranked #1 on the 2016 list. Eddie Holmes, chair of the UKPA, and James will join LendInvest to judge this year’s nominations.

The 2017 LendInvest PropTech Influencer List will be announced at LendInvest’s next PropTech Meet-up on Thursday, 30 November in the company of many of the property sector’s biggest PropTech enthusiasts and supporters.

Christian Faes, pictured, Co-founder and CEO of LendInvest, said:

“We are excited to bring back the LendInvest PropTech Influencer List for a second year due to popular demand. This year, it’s important to us to recognise the work that’s happening to promote the rise of digital transformation not just in the UK’s property market, but overseas too. With the help of our partners at the UKPA, we are confident that we will see a lot of new faces in this year’s list.“

Eddie Holmes, Chairman of UKPA, added:

“LendInvest’s first PropTech Influencer List in 2016 was really helpful in enabling property firms understand who they should talk to as they align to the threats and opportunities PropTech offers them. It is our pleasure to partner with LendInvest to help the 2017 survey reach as many people as possible.”
