Rodrigo Niño is the CEO of Prodigy Network, a real estate crowdfunding portal that is giving investors access to projects in both Colombia and the United States, including some of the most exclusive real estate in Manhattan.
On Monday, October 28, 2013 at 4:00 PM Eastern will join CrowdFundBeat for an exclusive interview.
Nino developed Prodigy’s crowdfunding model as an innovative way of giving smaller investors access to large real estate assets. With this model, he set the world record in crowd funding by summoning 3,500 investors and raising more than US$200 million in less than two years to fund the tallest building in Colombia, BD Bacata. Through crowdfunding, investors now have an opportunity to safely participate in profitable large-scale real estate investments at an affordable price.
The other projects in Colombia that have come to frame Prodigy’s new crowdfunding vision are: Bacata Express, Airport Business Hub, and Bogota Art District.
Nino has brought crowdfunding to a whole new level by integrating it with the My Ideal City project, a crowdsourcing model for urban development and city planning. My Ideal City takes a bottom up approach to urbanism by crowdsourcing ideas to design the city of the future. Prodigy Network then takes the ideas born from the local community and funds them with the Prodigy Crowd. Nino is now using his crowdfunding model to give foreign investors access to prime Manhattan real estate assets.
