About REALtech at Villanova

The Dilella Center for Real Estate is kicking off REALtech 2019 by bringing together students and professionals to discuss current issues in the Real Estate industry. 

Students will work collaboratively over a 10-week period to develop modern tech solutions to these issues. Participants will develop and design their innovations and ideas to be presented to a panel of industry professionals on April 30th.
