AlphaFlow is a new company that is focusing on connecting investors to the real estate crowdfunding ecosystem. Ray Sturm, who was previously one of the co-founders of RealtyShares, founded AlphaFlow in April, 2015.
Real estate crowdfunding has been getting more traction recently and there is a real need for an aggregator in the space given the immense number of real estate platforms that exist today. Similar to how NSR Invest and LendingRobot connect investors to Lending Club, Prosper and Funding Circle, AlphaFlow does the same for real estate crowdfunding. The product, dubbed AlphaFlow Exchange which launched on Monday aims to offer investors access to deals across many real estate crowdfunding sites including:
- Patch of Land
- Fund That Flip
- LendingHome (on-boarding in process)
- Sharestates (on-boarding in process)
Ray noted that this will give investors access to close to 75% of the real estate debt crowdfunding deals in the market at launch, but they hope to bring every real estate crowdfunding platform on board eventually. Instead of browsing deals on each individual crowdfunding site, investors will be able to compare deals across many sites. AlphaFlow Exchange allows the ability to filter by investment criteria which allows investors to easily filter on the types of deals they like to invest in across participating platforms. Ray provided us with a demo account to take a look at the investor experience firsthand. [Read more…]
