Real estate investment management company iintoo has entered a strategic partnership with Seed Equity Ventures, a registered broker-dealer that provides investment-banking services to startups and growth companies from around the world.
Seed Equity will give its members access to iintoo’s portfolio of commercial grade real estate investments while iintoo will be the exclusive source of real estate investment opportunities for the Seed Equity community.
Founded in 2014 by financial services veteran Todd Crosland, Seed Equity’s investor community exceeds 13,000 members across 145 countries and has raised millions of dollars in equity investments in early-stage companies.
With assets totalling $560 million, New York-based iintoo opens up access to commercial grade real estate investments that were once exclusive to professional funders and high net worth individuals. Starting at $25,000, accredited investors can invest in ownership shares in high-yield commercial grade real estate projects that undergo a rigorous due diligence and approval process by iintoo. Projects made available by iintoo typically offer double-digit annual returns over a two to three year investment period, with no ongoing management fee, the company said in a release.
“Through our partnership with Seed Equity, we are excited to bring an ever-growing community of investors from the U.S. and around the world access to iintoo’s portfolio of triple vetted commercial grade real estate investments,” said Eran Roth, founder, and CEO of iintoo.
“Acting as a hands-on partner with our investors from start to finish of every project we underwrite, iintoo is building the world’s most robust online investment program by bringing transparency and higher levels of risk mitigation to both consumers and developers.”
Unlike a crowdfunding platform, iintoo works directly with project developers to vet and create business plans to maximize the chances for success. As a global Real Estate Investment Management Company (REIMCO™), iintoo underwrites all investment opportunities and verifies a project’s developer, building permits, construction plans and revenue forecasts. iintoo also conducts complete project oversight throughout the life of an investment, which includes site visits, progress reports and the handling of quarterly returns.
“We want to bring only the best investment opportunities to our community,” Mr. Crosland said. “Real estate belongs in every investor’s portfolio and iintoo allows our members access to deals that are pre-vetted, professionally negotiated and thoroughly overseen during the lifetime of the investment.”
iintoo offers investment opportunities in a variety of market segments including ground-up development, student housing, senior living, hospitality, office buildings and mixed-use assets. Project sites include New York, Denver, Atlanta, St. Louis, San Diego, Tulsa, OK, Wichita Falls, TX, Savannah, GA, Veron, CT, Warrensburg, MO and Terre Haute, IN.
Investors can also access opportunities through iintoo’s social investment network at iintoo.com, which allows them to choose projects a la carte and interact with each other, trade tips and share industry knowledge.
