Marek Partel
Co-Founder & CEOEstateGuru
Marek is an experienced entrepreneur with a passion for proptech & fintech. Currently, he is reinventing property finance at EstateGuru, one of the leading European platforms for real estate-backed loans. Marek has been in the property business for 15 years as both a developer and investor. He’s witnessed many occasions where banks are unwilling to lend money or very slow in doing so, even though there is a solid business plan and mitigated risks. To combat these inefficiencies in the financial world, an alternative marketplace for property loans was born in 2013. Calling on his extensive experience in eight countries, Marek co-founded EstateGuru. Today, the platform has 26 000 investors from 106 countries and has disbursed loans of over €130 million in five countries. Marek is also a highly valued public speaker, and is regularly invited to flagship events and conferences to share his views and experiences about property finance transformation.
