    Erik Hayden: OZ Developer / Fund Manager is Exclusive to Downtown San Jose

    Erik Hayden: OZ Developer / Fund Manager is Exclusive to Downtown San Jose

    Erik Hayden, the founder of Urban Catalyst, was redeveloping downtown San Jose long before the Opportunity Zone program came into being. When the OZ program was created and designated much of old San Jose as opportunity zones, he didn't miss a stride. He created an Opportunity Zone fund so that his investors could grab OZ tax benefits, and then kept right on going.

    His single-minded focus on San Jose and only San Jose makes him the premier OZ developer and fund manager for Silicon Valley.

    John Lore - Top-Notch Legal Advice from Crypto to Opportunity Zone by way of Utah and Moscow

    John Lore - Top-Notch Legal Advice from Crypto to Opportunity Zone by way of Utah and Moscow

    John Lore left his home in the desert canyons of Utah for the concrete canyons of New York City. His Capital Fund Law Group was in such demand in the Big Apple that it made more sense to move his business. After a stint in Moscow - where he learned to speak Russian - he was a natural fit for a job in the Russian capital. Then 2008 hit. The financial crisis that shook the world ultimately led him back to the US and to founding his own law firm.

    Today, he serves a wide variety of clients looking to structure financial deals both internationally and domestically. But for today's show, we talk about his work with the Opportunity Zone clients. John Lore is my guest on this episode of The OZExpo Podcast.

    Peter Hirshberg - Let’s Treat Our Cities as Development Platforms

    Peter Hirschberg's early experience with government was the opposite of positive. His private industry experience rewarded fast prototyping, fast iteration and cooperative development. Now, with Maker City, he may have found a way to merge the speed and innovation of Silicon Valley with the potential for social good embodied in the OZ program. Peter Hirshberg is my guest on this episode of The OZExpo Podcast.
