New Competition Calls for Digital Property Ideas

Sweden Sweden Baltic Horizon, the Nasdaq-listed commercial real estate fund, is launching a new initiative that encourages Swedes to bring out any ideas that could make commercial property management further digitalized. The fund, which recently announced a secondary public offering to further expand its portfolio in the Baltics, will offer the winner an opportunity to develop and test their idea onsite at the funds properties in Tallinn, Estonia, as well as a ceremony at the Estonian Embassy in Stockholm.

“We are looking for any person who has a digital idea for how to make improvements to the management of commercial properties,” says Tarmo Karotam, head of the fund. “By promoting these ideas, we can both make property management more effective and society more sustainable, which is in line with our goals.”
Many swedes are still unaware of the developments across the Baltic sea, where Estonia is nowadays considered a leading digital nation and has the most startups per capita in the world. The country is also the first in the world to offer a so-called e-residency, a virtual residency, which the winner will receive as well as support from mentors and a testing ground to try out their idea.
“We can offer an environment with state of the art commercial properties in Tallinn for the winner to use in trying out their idea,” says Tarmo Karotam. “We also think it can be a cool experience to be part of the vibrant startup community in Tallinn as well.”
If you are the winner of the competition, you will get:
  • A return trip Stockholm – Tallinn
  • Accommodation for a selected period in central Tallinn
  • An Estonian E-residency
  • Access to a local team of mentors who will coach you
  • Access to commercial real estate to try out your idea
So, you think you have an idea that could be worth trying out? It is easy to participate. Just send your description of the idea on a A4-page to before 15 January 2018. You can also read more about it here:
