– Sep. 15, 2014 – CHICAGO — The Soho Loft Conferences, with diamond sponsors American Homeowner Preservation and Victoria Global, will introduce Online Capital to Real Estate Entrepreneurs this 18 September 2014.
“RealCap Chicago: Introducing Online Capital to Real Estate Entrepreneurs” will be held on Thursday from 8am to 6pm at One Financial Place, 440 S La Salle St., Chicago. The conference will provide real estate entrepreneurs the opportunity to learn from industry leaders on how to use an online platform to source funds for different ventures, whether its flipping and fixing houses for sale or funding mega-projects.
David Drake, Chairman and Founder of The Soho Loft Media Group, is a big believer of online crowdfunding platforms. He says, “The global market has seen noteworthy milestones in crowdfunding in recent years, and it is getting so much bigger than expected. By 2020 the crowdfunding industry will have grown to $1 trillion dollars.” David will be the moderator for this conference.
The event kicks off with a discourse on the basics of real estate crowdfunding and how it is shaping the real estate sector. The industry is yet to undergo major changes as online crowdfunding platforms are gaining massive popularity.
American Homeowner Preservation (AHP) Founder and CEO Jorge Newberry underscores the game changing impact of this trend. He says, “The rapid growth of real estate crowdfunding platforms can be attributed to both the low minimum investments of $100 – $10,000 as well as the transparency which both developers and investors now benefit from, as they compare terms and opportunities on platform and even across platforms, ” Newberry further adds. “The ease and speed of investing on the platforms is seductive. Online capital raising is the future of real estate finance.” There are over 50 real estate crowdfunding platforms active in the United States, and more platforms are planning to launch soon.
The conference will also feature investment insights from established family offices and investors in the segment What We Look For When Investing. This will surely help establish a framework on how real crowdfunding platforms can provide offerings that will satisfy the needs of the investing public.
Attendees will also learn how to put up their offerings and market them in online real estate platform through workshops facilitated by industry leaders. The How to Get Your Project Funded Online workshop will teach entrepreneurs different ways on how they can get their real estate projects funded online. After that, marketing experts will lead the Marketing and Publicity Strategies To Ensure Projects Are Funded – And Fast! workshop. This will provide entrepreneurs the necessary tools to distinguish their offerings from the rest, and thus gain investor’s interest. For attendees that are more in the do-it yourself category, GroundBreaker will lead the discussion on How to Start Your Own Crowdfunding Platform.

The potentials for crowdfunding to reshape how investments are funded are not lost on Asset Alliance and its CEO and Founder, Bruce Lipnick. In 2013, Asset Alliance made a play for the crowdfunding marketplace when it invested in Crowd Alliance, a crowdfunding platform.
“We are very excited to integrate traditional means of financing with the emergence of technology and socialization to create new direct opportunities for investors and issuers”, said Lipnick. He further believes that crowdfunding will become a strong factor in helping nascent companies and young entrepreneurs access a new source of capital.
The event is also sponsored by LDJ Capital , Victoria Partners , Times Realty News , Global Crowd News , FundingPost , Allied First Bank , Single Source and PeerRealty . Media partners include equities.com, FFORWARD , CFB and AIMkts.
