LeasePilot Awarded as Technology Pioneer by World Economic Forum
Boston, May 2022 – LeasePilot, the Boston-based company that helps commercial real estate
owners draft their leases faster, was selected among hundreds of candidates as one of the World
Economic Forum’s “Technology Pioneers”. LeasePilot was founded in 2015 with the idea of
eliminating unstructured documents as the principal technology that virtually all commercial
transactions are made of and replace it with a structured database.
The World Economic Forum’s Technology Pioneers are early to growth-stage companies from
around the world that are involved in the use of new technologies and innovation that are poised
to have a significant impact on business and society.
With their selection as Technology Pioneer, CEO Gabriel Safar of LeasePilot will be invited to
participate at World Economic Forum activities, events and discussions throughout the year.
LeasePilot will also contribute to Forum initiatives over the next two years, working with global
leaders to help address key industry and societal issues.
“We’re excited to welcome LeasePilot to our 2022 cohort of Technology Pioneers,” says
Saemoon Yoon, Community Lead, Technology Pioneers, World Economic Forum. “LeasePilot
and its fellow pioneers are at the forefront of industries that are critical to solving some of our
world’s most complex issues today. We look forward to their contribution to the World Economic
Forum in its commitment to improving the state of the world.”
“We are thrilled to be selected as a pioneer by the World Economic Forum”, said LeasePilot’s
CEO Gabriel Safar. “The World Economic Forum is a venue that allows leading companies to
wrestle and engage with important ideas where meaningful conversations can flourish with
stakeholders of all different backgrounds. Sharing these conversations with the community
makes these ideas stronger, more effective and increases the positive impact felt across the globe which we are all aiming for.”
For the first time, over one-third of selected Technology Pioneer firms are led by women, well
above the industry average. The firms also come from regions all around the world, creating a
truly global community. This year’s cohort includes start-ups from 30 countries, with Vietnam,
Rwanda and Czech Republic represented for the first time.
The diversity of these companies extends to their innovations as well. This year’s Tech Pioneer
firms are shaping the future by advancing technologies such as AI, IoT, robotics, blockchain,
biotechnology and many more. The full list of Technology Pioneers can be found here.
Technology Pioneers have been selected based on the community’s selection criteria, which
includes innovation, impact and leadership as well as the company’s relevance with the World
Economic Forum’s Platforms.
