Isaac J. Coonan 
Isaac founded Proptech BNE. in 2019 after working to support the emerging technology sector in Australia for the better part of a decade. Isaac saw there was something missing from the current support ecosystem looking to grow the proptech economy, and that was an industry-led, outcome-driven community.

After working for numerous growth programs, accelerators, incubators and venture capital firms, Isaac realised there was a need for industry-led support and guidance for emerging proptech businesses that was not being met by any initiative he had seen…. Hence, the birth of Proptech BNE.

Along with being the founder of Proptech BNE. Isaac holds a number of advisory and/or board positions for some of the counties leading proptech businesses, including BLOCX, Dopple, Space Platforms, and Gallantree. Isaac is also currently the Head of Industry Relations for Building 4.0 CRC, The country's leading industry-led research initiative solving some of the big issues for the property and construction sector globally.
