120 July 2018 RISMedia's REAL ESTATE {re: Real Estate} The REach® technology accelerator program, developed by Second Century Ventures (SCV), NAR's investment arm, streamlines this for you by researching, sourcing and bringing you the latest technology trends and in- novative tools to help you stay on the cutting edge and be more profitable. Leveraging World-Class Technology Every year, REach® selects six to 10 emerging technolo- gy companies to participate in a nine-month accelerator program that provides unprecedented access to some of the best minds in the real estate industry and fast- tracks their growth in the real estate vertical. By expanding the association's partnerships with technology leaders, and connecting selected startups to the real estate industry, SCV and REach® help ensure new technologies are designed in ways that support your role as being central to real estate transactions. Not only do these programs deliver innovative tech- nology to you faster, they ensure that innovation makes you more profitable. Over the past 12 months, more than 279,000 REALTORS® have tapped into the prod- ucts and services offered by one or more of the 48 REach® companies that have participated since the program's inception in 2013, resulting in almost $30 million in savings. Get Ahead of the Rest One key benefit for NAR members is the ability to partic- ipate in the REach® Insight Panel where they enjoy first access to the new technologies introduced by REach® companies. Participants receive a free test account and exclusive discounts from the companies in exchange for providing feedback on their experience. The commitment is small and the experience of shaping customized products for the real estate industry is very rewarding. The testing period is now open and closes on Sep- tember 30.
