The CrowdStreet Story
Making the markets work better for everyone.
During the Great Recession, our co-founders Tore Steen and Darren Powderly saw how many people were overly reliant on Wall Street for their investment opportunities. Realizing the importance of diversification outside of public equities, combined with the rise of a new investment vehicle known as equity crowdfunding, the two co-founded CrowdStreet in order to give individual investors better access to real estate, the 3rd-largest asset class in the U.S.
We’re reinventing real estate investing to deliver better financial outcomes.
Together–the investors, sponsors, and partners of CrowdStreet–we are reinventing real estate investing end-to-end.
