We wanted to create a podcast for two primary reasons. The first goal is to lead meaningful conversations about how proptech can start to solve critical problems in the industry and beyond. HqO is in an interesting position since we provide technology that is the intersection of the physical and digital worlds — sharing how we can address modern challenges can set society up for future success. The second goal is to help our peers and prospective customers by addressing common questions they ask about who we are, how we started, and how we operate as a company.13 September 2021
