Andrei Birzhin announced the launch of an accelerator for IT startups in the real estate sector

The head of the Glorax Group, Andrei Birzhin, announced the launch of the Quadro accelerator, a program for the development of IT start-ups and blockchain technologies in real estate and development. The volume of planned investments is 1 billion rubles, which is a record amount for this segment.

About 75% of the investment volume is made up of Glorax Group’s own funds, another 20% is provided by institutional investors and partners of the Group. The remaining 5% is the funds of free market investors. At this stage, any interested investor can join the acceleration program.

The Quadro team includes major players in the Russian real estate, retail and IT markets as mentors, including Lamoda CEO Florian Jansen, N&K Spedition AS CEO Martin Gregersen, Glorax Group CEO Alexander Andrianov. Head of the accelerator is Andrei Birzhin, a founder of the investment Glorax Group, whose priority is the development business. Glorax Development is a leading player in the real estate market of St. Petersburg and one of the TOP-5 developers of the “Northern” capital.

“The Russian and global real estate markets are sorely lacking innovative solutions that will help optimize the construction and project management process, reduce the human factor and, of course, improve the consumer properties of the product. Special attention should be paid to the real estate purchase and sale segment, as it is necessary to strengthen the security of transactions and speed up the processes. We are ready to provide promising startups with financial assistance, business contacts, expertise and the possibility of implement services at real construction sites. We also plan to invite accelerator experts for specific tasks after the launch of the project,” comments Andrei Birzhin.

Acceptance of the first applications has already started on the website www.glorax.io. The collection of applications for participation in the accelerator will last until mid-December 2020. Teams will go through an absentee qualifying round and then will be able to present their startups at a face-to-face meeting with accelerator experts. During the year, 4 in-person qualifying rounds will be held.
