MOONSHOT 2030: Taronga Ventures and how it’s supercharging sustainable property tech


Venture capital from Taronga Group is giving innovative sustainable tech solutions the boost they need to transform the property industry.

Taronga co-founder Jonathan Hannam is a highlight of our Moonshot 2030 eco proptech event on 23 November. And he’ll also be a judge on our pitchfest for great start ups to round off the day – in person!

The way we build and operate buildings has evolved very little over the years. 

The industry is notoriously slow to innovate, with the protracted, complex task of delivering a new building not the sort of activity that bodes well with experimental technologies or systems that might cause delays or cost overblows.

For companies looking to sell technologies to the real estate sector, it’s a tough gig. With the property sector in Australia dominated by large, established companies, it’s a hard sector to break into as a fledgling startup, no matter how promising the technology is.

As such, the industry has so far missed out on a lot of the innovation that has already made many other industries more productive and efficient, generating savings and, pertinently, lowering environmental impacts. 

Now, venture capital is helping more of these new technology vendors penetrate the real estate sector. 

Taronga Group, founded in 2015, invests in technology to modernise the built environment.  It was started when co-founder and managing partner Jonathan Hannam noticed that the real estate and construction sectors were struggling to innovate.
