Applications for NAR’s 2014 REach™ class are now open – please help us spread the word!

REach™ is a strategic accelerator launched last year in conjunction with the National Association of Realtors® to help great technology companies gain access to the $1 trillion real estate industry.

The opportunity for companies to address the real estate marketplace is huge – there are over 1M Realtors®, 12M consumers, 110k broker offices and $7B of ad spend each year. Participating companies receive education, mentorship from the industry’s best and brightest, access to 500+ beta testers and incredible exposure in the industry.

Last year’s REach™ companies were fantastic and truly accelerated their business through the program – results were so well received by the companies and industry alike that we decided to do it again! Help us spread the word for the next class – companies don’t necessarily need to be focused on real estate – they should be amazing companies that can innovate any industry – we’ll help them do it starting with this one.

Deadline to apply early is February 1, 2014; Final deadline is March 1. 2014. More info and the online application at

Please forward this email to any entrepreneur that you think could benefit from knowing of it or tweet/ post something like, “Any tech startups looking for mentors, beta testers, and customers? Thought so! Apply to @narREach before 2/1”

Thanks in advance for your support!
