Urbano Communities

Urbano Tech

Technology as a sector is fast-moving and every business is now impacted by technological revolutions in the way their services and their sectors are created and delivered.

Across Urbano’s communities are interested in and using the latest innovations to enhance how their client and themselves operate. From HRTech to FinTech, EdTech to PropTech, each sector with our communities is looking to understand how hardware and software, apps and systems can help them work leaner.

Our Urbano Tech Community includes companies who develop mobile applications, digital platforms and projects, including websites and back-end CMS systems, to those who  offer specialist and support services in IT, hosting, cloud and workplace systems.

Many Tech Community company members focus on hardware and software solutions and applications in VR, AR, animation, modelling, and CAD. Many of our Urbano Tech Community members offer services and products in construction and the built environment (Build) , especially in BIM (Building Information Modelling), an area we have long supported as we believe it offers specialist, smaller providers opportunities to offer innovative solutions to larger companies in the sector. This has now extended into Smart Cities, workplace design, wellbeing/wellbuilding, laser surveying, 3D modelling, project management and bespoke software development.

Urbano is especially useful for new tech start-ups who need support as they grow, including recruitment and HR advice (People), funding and investment (Finance), branding and marketing (Media) and a chance to benefit from the business experiences of others at our events.

 MIPIM NETWORKING RECEPTION @ CHURCH HOUSE WESTMINSTER, LONDON

THURSDAY MARCH 17TH  | 18.00 -20.30

Around this time, many Urbano member companies will be planning their participation at MIPIM - the international property event - which takes place in March. Due to different factors, many companies have already chosen either not to take a team over to France or with much reduced representation.

Sponsored by Stewart Title - a leading provider of title insurance and real estate services for the commercial and residential sectors - this event will provide great networking and hospitality courtesy of  Urbano and the team at Church House Westminster.

For this event, Urbano Members can book up to three representatives. Non-members can book a maximum of two representatives, subject to our usual restrictions.
