These days it seems like everyone has their own idea for a proptech solution to plug a gap in the market. But what is it like to form your own proptech start-up, and how do you make a success of it? In our lead feature for this quarter, we meet some of the most promising innovators in the field to find out what it takes to succeed.

Also, this issue, we look at some of the most interesting examples of how internet-of-things technology is taking hold in our built environment – and how we may not have even noticed it happening. We speak to a set of experts for their view on how the construction industry can truly reform itself and consider the plight of some of the world's great coastal cities in the face of rising sea levels.

With our eye on Asia-Pacific, we investigate whether building offices with wellbeing in mind is a movement ready to take off in the region; RICS Senior Economist Sean Ellison considers the lessons learned from the Asian Financial Crisis; and we assess India and South Korea's progress in improving the transparency of their markets.
