CrowdVested, a crowdfunding platform focused on commercial real estate, has launched in Atlanta. The program is designed to allow real estate developers a new way to raise capital and provide people a vehicle to invest in commercial real estate deals.
Until recently, crowdfunding has been limited to people wanting to make donations or to buy goods, but CrowdVested operates under the Invest Georgia Exemption, which allows Georgia residents to crowdfund investments within the state. Georgia is one of only two states in the country that has legalized crowd investing.
“We saw an opportunity to fill a void in the Georgia real estate market,” said Grady Thrasher, CEO of CrowdVested in a media release. “CrowdVested offers another way for local projects to get the last chunk of financing that they need, and equally important, it gives investors a way to profit from real estate projects that help their communities.”
CrowdVested enables real estate developers to raise funds for new projects by offering equity shares to Georgia investors, whether accredited or non-accredited. Thrasher said real estate is a perfect fit for crowd investing. CrowdVested will feature both redevelopment and new construction projects, ranging from multifamily projects to office buildings to neighborhood gyms.

  1. Great way for locals to fund development and area improvement. Additionally local “REIT” investment gives a more hands on investment approach as investors can see what is going on with their money and they will be better able to discern if that particular project will create a financial return.
