ParticleX PropTech Global Challenge (PPGC) is a strategic initiative for startups, facilitating innovative technology solutions to real-world challenges in the property and real estate industries or addressing the ESG factors. The programme uses a multidisciplinary matching approach, bridging the gap between start-ups and corporates, as well as angel investors and government incubators. Our unique, one-of-a-kind program avoids the financial shackles of classes, cohorts, commuting and other additional costs incurred prior to getting funding or business contracts.
