Nearly a year after launching, MetaProp NYC, a firm that provides funding and mentoring to grow real estate tech startups, has hired its first general manager.
Health technology executive Monika Wysocki has been brought on board to grow the company’s community and lead its second-ever 22-week, real estate technology program for startups, which begins in August. MetaProp, which is based at 18 West 21st Street between Fifth Avenue and Avenue of the Americas, was founded in April 2015. It invests between $25,000 and $250,000 in each company.
Before MetaProp, Ms. Wysocki was a portfolio manager with StartUp Health, which focuses on supporting health-based startups. Prior to that, she was an associate digital strategist with health and wellness communications company McCann Health. Ms. Wysocki has a bachelor’s degree in political communication from the George Washington University in Washington D.C.
“Over the past few years, Monika helped build one of the few successful New York-based industry communities and, in the process, has solicited, evaluated, selected and grown some of the most exciting startups—all skills that transfer seamlessly to our booming business,” Aaron Block, a co-founder of MetaProp, said in a news release.
MetaProp selected five out of 150 companies for its inaugural program, which ran from August 2015 to January 2016. The companies are Rentalutions, Radiator Labs, SocialSign.In, Notion, Optii Solutions.
“I look forward to adding my mentor and startup experience to the MetaProp accelerator, which has already established itself as the leader in the real estate tech startup world,” Ms. Wysocki said in a statement. “This is the perfect time to jump on the real estate tech growth rocket.”
