A team from TransitScreen traveled to Boston to compete in the first annual Harvard University Real Estate Venture Pitch Competition this past weekend. The competition was created to discover new companies with the potential to “materially impact the real estate industry through innovative business strategy and creative execution.”

At the Cambridge Hotel, 22 semifinalists remained of 100+ applicants from all over the globe. Each startup pitched to a panel of distinguished judges. The judges voted TransitScreen one of four finalists in the Sunday pitch showdown. The finals were held at Harvard Business School, sponsored by Bowery Capital and SoftBank Capital.

“It was an honor to participate where so many great leaders have been before,” said co-founder Ryan Croft. “Harvard University was the perfect setting to welcome global leaders in real estate and tech innovation. It’s clear the potential for TransitScreen has never been greater.”

Croft was joined by Head of Growth David Nebinski and Boston City Manager Marcus Goodwin.
