    “This is one of the most significant things to happen to real estate since the internet.” Fifth Wall’s Brendan Wallace and Tyson Woeste on the launch of their $200m Carbon Impact Fund

    “This is one of the most significant things to happen to real estate since the internet.” Fifth Wall’s Brendan Wallace and Tyson Woeste on the launch of their $200m Carbon Impact Fund

    On this week's Tech Talk Radio, Emily Wright and co-host Sam McClary are joined by Fifth Wall's Brendan Wallace and Tyson Woeste following the launch of the California-based VC fund's $200m Carbon Impact Fund last week. 
    The fund will allow real estate companies in invest in sustainable and energy efficient technologies.
    The duo talk about why the time for action is now as the general public, capital markets and regulators alike are all starting to ask what the real estate sector is doing to take responsibility for its role in climate change. 
    "We want to make the real estate industry more energy efficient than it is currently," says Wallace. "Everyone on planet earth is in the middle of this crisis and real estate owners haven’t accepted the responsibility they have. It is time. The real estate industry has to come together to solve this."
    Wallace and Woeste go on to add that the problem will not be solved by hundreds or thousands of real estate owners looking to individually assess technologies and then individually apply them to their portfolios. Rather everyone needs to come together to solve a "collective problem". 
    Given the fact that Fifth Wall manages "a billion dollars worth of capital" from 52 real estate corporates across the world already, it feels well placed to be the driving force behind bringing the sector together to help take on "the biggest fight of our generation."

    "Trying to move with the times has meant suffering occasional ridicule, but at least I'm putting myself out there." Meet the property finance firm proving it's never too late to embrace tech

    "Trying to move with the times has meant suffering occasional ridicule, but at least I'm putting myself out there." Meet the property finance firm proving it's never too late to embrace tech

    On this week's Tech Talk Radio, EG kicks off the new year and a new decade with a refreshingly honest chat with Mark Quigley of Beaufort Capital. 
    The managing director of the firm's UK real estate finance division joined Emily Wright and Sam McClary to talk about how he, along with the rest of his team, is addressing some of the challenges around digital transformation. 
    Quigley reveals how he is learning about the impact of technology on real estate despite being someone who has gaps in his knowledge when it comes to tech. 
    "I could just ignore all of these tech advances," he says. "But then I would never take myself forward. Learning about technology has meant putting myself out there. I am the oldest member of my team and those younger than me are quick to point out my shortcomings but I also know that all of them recognise I am trying to move with the times."
    To find out more, tune in to hear how learning about technology has helped propelled Beaufort Capital forward and listen to Quigley outline plans for an AI breakfast, hosted by the company, on January 28th.

    From finance to founder, tackling mental health in proptech and your chance to meet the man behind Google Maps. TTR is back with a change of pace

    On this week's Tech Talk Radio, co-hosts Emily Wright and Lucy Alderson (temporarily) slow down and take stock as they discuss all things mental health ahead of this week's special issue of EG. As our survey of nearly 700 real estate professionals  - including those from the tech sector  - has revealed some "tough to read" statistics, Alderson digs into some of the contributing factors that working in a fast-paced industry can have on those operating within it. 
    Also this week we speak to Jess Ford, co-founder of the new property management start-up Herddle, about giving up a career in investment banking to become a founder, why acquiring a company two years ago to trial the concept was "crucial" and what the future holds for the fledgling firm. 
    Also on this week's episode find out more about the tech special of EG due out before Christmas and the final Tech Live event of the year where the man behind Google Maps will be speaking and answering your questions.
