The panel discussion, moderated by Sydney Armani, publisher of CrowdFund Beat, will address crowdfunding trends, technical and business process innovations, guidance for investors, and how to’s for residential and commercial real estate operators to most effectively raise capital. Other panels will cover developing new real estate markets with crowdfunding; its potential for social impact; and expanding footprint across the U.S. and the world. The conference is organized by The Soho Loft and FundingPost.com, and is the third in a successful series in which iFunding has participated. Dinner and networking/cocktails are on the agenda for the evening of July 17th, with the educational content being presented on July 18th.

Crowdfunding makes real estate accessible to a broader community of investors seeking attractive returns and low minimum investments, and reduces the overhead of developers seeking new capital sources and reporting results to investors. iFunding’s speaking role at the conference is part of its ongoing program to educate more parties about how to participate in crowdfunding. Other educational outreach includes webinars about specific investment opportunities for registered users at iFunding’s website, and presentations at local real estate investment associations (REIAs). iFunding recently authored an article in Real Estate Weekly about the impact of crowdfunding on real estate players.

“Soho Loft’s conferences are always excellent opportunities for investors and real estate professionals to exchange insights and learn more about real estate crowdfunding and its potential as an investment and capital-raising tool,” said William Skelley, CEO of iFunding. “The agenda reflects the implications of crowdfunding in our industry: a new, technology-enabled democratization of investing, the potential to improve housing conditions by facilitating affordable housing investments, and nationwide and even international participation across housing markets. I am looking forward to speaking with developers and investors about how they can participate in this movement.”

The address for event activities on Friday, July 18, is 44 East 3rd Ave, San Mateo, CA. The location, Draper University, was founded by renowned venture capitalist Tim Draper to train entrepreneurs.
