Carol Friel, Associate Director, Entrepreneurship and Innovation Ecosystems, Investment NSW Hi everyone, I’m Carol and I’m part of the Entrepreneurship and Innovation Ecosystems team, part of Investment NSW. I’m here today at the Sydney Startup Hub with one of our amazing founders, Pablo who’s the co-founder of PropHero. Tell us a little bit about PropHero.

Pablo Gil Brusola, PropHero So at PropHero we are digitising the property investment journey. So, our vision is why can you buy Amazon shares from your phone, but you can't buy property anywhere in the world.

Carol Friel, Associate Director, Entrepreneurship and Innovation Ecosystems, Investment NSW That's quite an ambitious problem to be solving and a good market to be doing it in.

Pablo Gil Brusola, PropHero We are very data backed like that's where Michael, my business partner, comes from. He has a double degree mathematician, like super bright guy. I strongly believe that ideas are worth 10, 15%.

Carol Friel, Associate Director, Entrepreneurship and Innovation Ecosystems, Investment NSW Anyone can have an idea.

Pablo Gil Brusola, PropHero Yes, it's just how you execute it and I think that's where both Michael and I have excelled on bringing the best talent to the team. We recently celebrated our first-year anniversary here.

Carol Friel, Associate Director, Entrepreneurship and Innovation Ecosystems, Investment NSW Congratulations and you've been at the Sydney Startup Hub since the beginning.

Pablo Gil Brusola, PropHero Since the beginning, yes.

Carol Friel, Associate Director, Entrepreneurship and Innovation Ecosystems, Investment NSW Have you received any kind of government assistance?

Pablo Gil Brusola, PropHero Yes, we got the MVP grant which was great. It really helps a lot, especially with the tech resources being so expensive. It definitely helps a lot. You get also from the community, like if you're missing on something you will share or they will say “hey have you applied for this?”, then you investigate a bit more.

Carol Friel, Associate Director, Entrepreneurship and Innovation Ecosystems, Investment NSW Tell us a little bit about some accolades you've recently won.

Pablo Gil Brusola, PropHero Yes, we won the Prop Tech Startup of the Year.

Carol Friel, Associate Director, Entrepreneurship and Innovation Ecosystems, Investment NSW Congratulations!

Pablo Gil Brusola, PropHero Yes, helps us building a lot of trust for our clients.

Carol Friel, Associate Director, Entrepreneurship and Innovation Ecosystems, Investment NSW We look forward to looking at where PropHero is in 12 months’ time.

Pablo Gil Brusola, PropHero Thank you very much. Just one last piece of advice, I mean it's a tough journey as I mentioned before. Like you have to be ready and committed to not have a vacation or being paid nothing. There's a lot to it but I mean it fulfills you a lot.

Carol Friel, Associate Director, Entrepreneurship and Innovation Ecosystems, Investment NSW That’s great, thank you very much.

Pablo Gil Brusola, PropHero Awesome, thank you.
