Realty Mogul, a graduate of the Los Angeles Founder Institute has been named one of Sprouter's Hot Startups for the week of January 11, 2013. Realty Mogul simplifies investing in private real estate by connecting investors to properties throughout the US. After pooling contributions from investors (as little as $10k), the funds are either put towards loans for renovations and remodels, or equity purchases for commercial buy and hold.
While every investment is risky, Realty Mogul provides increased transparency into the investment and allows the investor to choose specific properties in a desired location. The platform also enables investors to monitor their money 24/7 and track its growth over time.
In addition to graduating from the Founder Institute, co-founders Jilliene Helman and Justin Hughes have also gone through the Windows Azure Accelerator, powered by Tech Stars. The team was recently featured on the Microsoft Biz Spark Blog to provide a few bits of advice for others considering applying to the program.
