Tim Draper to Co-sponsor The Real Estate Tokenization Pitch Competition

Which Startup will be voted No. 1?

SolidBlock is teaming up with Draper VC to present a real estate tokenization pitch competition that will be judged by legendary American venture capitalist Tim Draper, along with SolidBlock’s CEO Yael Tamar and President Laura Brightsen.

Scheduled for July 18, 2022, at 10:00 am PST, the Real Estate Fractionalization/Tokenization Pitch Competition will support some of the high-growth startups that are paving the way toward a more profitable future in real estate. This event is free and open to the public.

In addition to the judges, audience members will also vote on which pitch deserves the people’s choice award. Your vote for the most original and cohesive presentation could influence the future of the tokenized real estate for years to come.

The first prize for best pitch is an investment of $1M and a meeting with Tim Draper.

About SolidBlock

Founded in 2018 and headquartered in Israel, SolidBlock is a leader in Tokenization as a Service (TaaS) for real estate. As blockchain fuels change in the way real estate is transacted, the tokenization of real-world assets on SolidBlock’s platform empowers asset owners to transact differently—buy, sell, raise capital, and collateralize—and to manage their tokenized property on a secure, immutable, transparent system. 

SolidBlock provides the tools that unlock the value of an asset’s liquidity and administer the records for every real estate transaction on the blockchain. SolidBlock’s real estate tokenization platform is a bridge to a decentralized financial (DeFi) ecosystem and the Web3 blockchain economy.
