From the CrowdVested site:

CrowdVested is a Georgia-based online crowdfunding platform dedicated solely to the Georgia real estate industry. It is an innovative new way for Georgia residents to invest in real estate projects here in our state.

We are investment-focused and passionate about improving Georgia’s communities. Our mission is to connect sponsors of great real estate projects with investors seeking not only a return on their investment but also a shared passion and vision for bettering our local communities.

CrowdVested opens real estate investment up to all Georgians, restoring the input and influence local communities have historically enjoyed while broadening the invetment opportunities available to everyone. No longer are project sponsors limited to seeking funding from distant institutions and the most wealthy in our society. Through our platform, Georgia-based companies can now sell equity shares to both accredited and non-accredited Georgia residents.

Grady is also an attorney with Thrasher Liss & Smith; his bio reads:
