Weekly stories on the subject of real estate, design and the built environment


Ivo van Breukelen



I have lived and worked in Europe (The Netherlands), Asia (Vietnam), S-America (Argentina) and North-America (USA). My skillset lies in international business and market development. I have hosted guest lectures (most notably at Harvard) and have an extensive global network (20k + LinkedIn) with Investors including Investment Banks and VC’s, Real Estate Developers, Building Owners and other stakeholders in the Commercial Real Estate value chain (AEC community and GC’s), as well as manufacturers and other service providers.

My international experience and network allows me to make meaningful, global connections in the Commercial RE ecosystem.

I’m beyond excited about the technological revolution that is taking place in the SmartCities, PropTech and SmartCity space. This is dramatically going to change the world, for the better I believe.

I represent multiple innovative companies – manufacturers and service providers – in the US market, always focused on fostering innovation.

I get energized by helping my network, so please don’t hesitate to reach out if I can help or if you are looking for an innovative solution for a project, a topic expert speaker or other international contact.

Breukelen Consulting aims to be the go-to platform to access to the most innovative companies, products and people in the Commercial Real Estate value chain.
