RealConnex launches today as the only online platform connecting the entire real estate ecosystem in one marketplace that efficiently allows investors, lenders, developers, construction companies and other service providers to access professional opportunities in real time. RealConnex raised $2 million in seed funding to develop and launch the platform and is currently raising a Series A Round that will close this year.

Previous honorees of START include Nest (acquired for this year by Google for $3.2 billion) and The Muse (the job board site backed by Reddit founder Alexis Ohanian and Tyra Banks).
