FWD Innovation Summit

Congratulations to our 2022 winner, RealScout!

RealScout will receive $25k and prominent placement in Realogy’s Open Ecosystem, a technology platform that brings together agents, brokers, partners and developers to enable choice, flexibility and customized solutions for home buying and selling and beyond.

About FWD: Realogy’s one-of-a-kind pitch competition for emerging real estate technology companies.

The FWD Innovation Summit provides emerging real estate technology companies the opportunity to be part of Realogy’s first-of-its-kind open ecosystem, empowering affiliated agents and brokers with product choice, shared data and deeply integrated experiences.

Last December, 10 companies were chosen to pitch their products. From there, five finalists were chosen to further develop their product and idea, and directly connect it to the open architecture.

On the table is a $25,000 grand prize and featured placement in the Realogy Marketplace. One winner will be chosen, though all five finalists will have their products featured as part of Realogy’s suite of solutions for affiliated agents and brokers. The winner will receive $25,000 in prize money as well as prominent placement in the Marketplace where the open ecosystem is housed.
