DC FinTech Roundup: Fundrise

Historically, real estate has proven to be one of the best-performing investments. But why is it that most profits go to institutional investors, who are only middlemen in these types of transactions?

After working with the Securities and Exchange Commission for nearly a year, Dan and Ben Miller launched Fundrise in 2012 to give everyone the opportunity to invest directly in high quality commercial real estate, without middlemen. Today, Fundrise has more than 80,000 members and has invested nearly $3 billion. By leveraging the latest in technology, Fundrise makes the process of investing in real estate simple, efficient, and transparent. Check out Fundrise to discover how their low-fee diversified eREIT is changing the way we invest in real estate.
