Madera Residential experienced all of the usual pain points of owning and operating properties. In response, they’ve invested millions from the operating partnership to develop their own technology stack called Quext: property management system, telecom, call center, portal, smart home and property websites. They took the unusual path of doubling down their entrepreneurial instincts and betting their profits that they could use their knowledge as owners to create tech that works for the properties
We will interview Dave Marcinkowski, a partner at Madera about why they’ve made this leap to insource technology, how they measure success and their plans to commercialize and bring in outside investors. Come prepared with your questions and ideas - this should be a unique MTEC discussion.

APIs rule the world. Software developers depend on Amazon for data hosting, Github for open source, Twilio for email/sms, Stripe for payments, and Google for street maps. The modern software supply chain is designed to push innovation and allow developers to focus on just that. Cue: Engrain for property maps. Engrain believes every PropTech application should include the actual real estate in the form of a map. Humans prefer to look at data visually, allowing for faster consumption of information and higher confidence in decision making. Unit Map, Engrain's free Maps-as-a-Service platform is available to applications for touring, wayfinding, leasing, rent pricing and business intelligence. More than 400 multifamily owners and managers rely on Unit Map to share thousands of property maps with technology innovators across the industry.
