Why is the Brigade Group investing in an Accelerator program that is technology focused?

The real estate sector is one of the most globally recognized sectors contributing not justmuch needed Commercial and Residential spaces but also significant number of jobs. In India, real estate is the second largest employer after agriculture and is slated to grow at 30% over the next decade.

The Indian real estate market is expected to touch US$ 180 billion by 2020. The housing sector alone contributes 5-6% to the country's Gross Domestic Product (GDP). Retail, hospitality and commercial real estate are also growing significantly, providing the much-needed infrastructure for India's growing needs.

But to keep pace with the ever changing needs of the customers, it is imperative for the industry to accelerate its pace of adoption of Innovation and disruptive technologies. This cannot be done by one company alone and like with other industries and companies globally, we at Brigade (http://brigadegroup.com) believe that by collaborating and working with young companies it will benefit the industry at large.

Innovation is a core value for the group and a focus area for the Leadership team, amply demonstrated in several initiatives across disciplines. The purpose of the accelerator is for Brigade to continue to help foster innovation in the industry by, leveraging the company's strengths which are:

  • * Deep domain knowledge across Residential, Office, Retail and Hospitality
  • * Providing test beds for promising young companies
  • * Customer network
  • * Partnerships with global tech companies

These strengths can be exploited in a collaborative model delivered through the accelerator program with partnerships with several young innovative companies.
