Sitting at his computer in Milwaukee, F Street Investments founder Scott Lurie watched as a $50,000 pledge was made toward his firm’s latest raise by a resident of Huffman, Texas.
That came only a few minutes after F Street Investments’ offering went live on the national Securitize website, which vets and offers opportunities to an online pool of hundreds of thousands of accredited investors. F Street Investments is turning to Securitize as a broker and dealer as it looks to raise up to $50 million for its business providing loans for real estate companies to acquire and rehab homes.
The digital tool, which almost instantly connected Lurie to a person in Texas whom he’d never met, is another example of how the digital world is transforming the process of raising money for real estate investments in Milwaukee, and beyond.
