In this session, Kyle Campbell, founder of Retsly, will speak about what it takes to build and scale data-driven technology startups within the Real Estate industry. Kyle will draw from his real world experiences to help define best practices and also pitfalls that are crucial understandings for data-driven startups and product teams inside of real estate. You will hear about Kyle’s journey from the beginning with Retsly, including how the idea came to life, how he approached building the product, scaling his team with limited funding, and more broadly his 8-month journey to acquisition.
Whether it be RETS, IDX, Data Dictionary, Public Records or his experience building Retsly and being acquired by Zillow, this session will help anyone interested in real estate technology and startups develop an in-depth understanding of the hurdles and the best practices that will help you navigate an industry which few young startups are able to break into. This session is perfect for anyone who has ever asked themselves if they could change the way technology works in real estate.
Tapas and drinks will be provided.
