The Proptech with NAR March meetup discusses some of the data challenges PropTech startups face when trying to scale, and how cloud service providers may be able to help. Recorded March 25, 2021.

In this discussion, Dave Conroy and Dan Weisman, Directors of NAR's Emerging Technology, are joined by Jeff Barr, Vice President & Chief Evangelist at AWS, and Gabriel Damant-Sirois, Co-founder & CPO at Local Logic.

Data is at the core of what Local Logic offers. As the company grew, its need for data scalability grew with it. They also needed to increase the coverage of their products, their distribution, and the depth of the insights they offered. Gabriel discusses alongside Jeff the different AWS products that were leveraged to accomplish scaling their PropTech startup.
