NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--MetaProp—the world’s leading venture capital firm focused on the PropTech industry—today shared plans to accelerate its growth in APAC by appointing Satoshi Murakami as Region Director. Murakami joins the firm after spending the past four years as Director of Corporate Venture Capital group at Sumitomo Corporation, as well as holding various roles in its Real Estate Division, focused on commercial real estate development in the Asia Pacific.
By bringing a full complement of real estate and tech expertise as well as relationships in Asia, Murakami will accelerate MetaProp’s APAC PropTech presence and support the firm’s efforts to double down on investments in the region, where the growth of early-stage PropTech companies increases every day. As MetaProp grows its presence in the region, the firm’s planning an APAC Regional Summit for founders and investors to connect with the leadership team. Summit locations include Singapore, Seoul, and Tokyo. Learn more about the upcoming summit here.
