The new ‘25 under 25’ list of London’s most promising young tech entrepreneurs does not contain a single proptech name.
The list, published recently by Tech London Advocates, recognises the excellence of entrepreneurs under age 25 from various fields. It is headed by Aleksandra Pedraszewska, 24, co-founder of VividQ a software builder for holographic 3D display. Anisah Osman Britton, founder and CEO of 23 Code Street, a coding school for women also makes the list. However, anything remotely property related is conspicuous by its absence.
Tech London Advocates is a collection of influential tech leaders, experts and investors. Founder Russ Shaw is a respected commentator on many key issues affecting London’s technology sector. The list was created as part of a recently launched campaign to create 1m tech jobs by 2023, as well as increase diversity in the sector.
Given London (and the UKs) reputation for tech alongside innovation in the property sector we’re surprised to say the least. However, we’re prepared to believe this relatively new accolade and London’s young proptech hotshots just haven’t found each other yet.
