In today's episode, we bring on Mike Bristow, the CEO and co-founder of CrowdProperty, to talk about crowdfunding for real estate in the UK market. The CrowdProperty platform has been one of the most successful platforms in this space, due to the excellent technology they have built coupled with the many years of experience in the real estate sector of their leadership team and founders.
With a background in strategy consultancy advising major corporates and private equity funds on corporate strategy and buyouts, Mike has been investing in property since 2002, investing in high potential proptech businesses since 2014 and sits on the Investment Committee of Pi Labs, Europe’s first and most prolific venture capital fund investing exclusively in early-stage ventures in
the proptech vertical. Mike has an MBA from London Business School, was named in the Peer2Peer Finance News Power 50 list in both 2018 and 2019, is a founding board member of the Innovate Finance 36H Group alongside other leading peer-to-peer lending platforms and was named 'Entrepreneur of the Year' at the Midlands Business Awards 2020.
After listening to Mike speak about CrowdProperty and the sector in general, I think you'll have a much better understanding of how investing in real estate through online platforms works, and you'll be ready to make your first investment.
