Is "Buy The Block," The Premier Black Real Estate Crowd Funding Platform, The Answer To Gentrification?

"Buy The Block" Stands Out From The Crowd In Black Investing

Nationwide -- Entrepreneur Lynn P. Smith is the founder and CEO at Buy The Block - one of the only Black-owned platforms in the country that is dedicated to making investments in real estate as a group more accessible. The movement is presently on its way to recording massive success in funding for diverse development projects across Black communities in the US.

This enviable initiative offers every Black American an opportunity to invest as little as $100, and connect with other investors - with an added advantage of helping every member buy a piece of their first block. Having a growing database of BlockVestors and Block Developers, all it takes to be a member is by signing up on their website.

With the platform, acquiring property or block of choice in one's local area is achievable. Getting the funds to make such a big difference can also be without hassles. All that is required of a member is to; find a property, make an offer, bring the property to Buy The Block, get the needed funding from other investors if they so desire, and then purchase the block.

The ability to share wealth depending on each person's investment makes it a win-win situation for all block investors. Buy The Block can manage any project from concept to end, and they aim to develop a large number of construction projects, in areas such as; residential, manufacturing, retail, multi-family, medical, religious, and pre-engineered building construction.

With the focus on the Black communities in America, Buy The Block is on track to raise millions of dollars in funding for development projects in these communities. Having the capacity to take on more significant projects and contracts, they project that they will soon change the face of crowdfunding real estate investing in the country.

They intend to do this by committing their time to getting great projects and making it a win-win for all sponsored projects. Their mission as stated on their website is to "change investing from confusing and frustrating, to an accessible and enjoyable social experience."
Speaking excitedly, Lynn said; "Indeed, we have loads of challenges, but I am determined to educate our community and make this work... thanks to the everyone out there, that united as one to embrace and support this unique concept."

See How The Interactive Business Weekend Shows Black Entrepreneurs How To Get Money For Their Startups

See Why Ella Rucker Went From "Being Pregnant Sleeping On A Couch" To Showing Black Entrepreneurs Da Money

Nationwide -- When Ella Rucker spent her first pregnancy on her friend's couch nine years ago, she didn't have any plans to change the lives of entrepreneurs. And now she's changing the economic climate for entrepreneurs.

The Interactive Business Pitch Weekend is coming to Washington, D.C. Rucker, who got her start in entrepreneurism after her first daughter was born, has created an event for entrepreneurs to pitch their ideas to venture capitalists, television executive producers and on-air personalities.

The Interactive Business Pitch Weekend is a collaboration of seasoned, experienced and successful professionals who possess the skill, experience, and knowledge entrepreneurs need to succeed.

These pitch professionals have teamed up to provide “interactive” presentations and specialized workshops designed to prepare entrepreneurs and small business owners with the tools needed to pitch with confidence! Rucker comments, "African American entrepreneurs are often not represented 'at the table' where the big deals are made. So we are bringing the table to the entrepreneurs!"

Underfunding of African American entrepreneurs has been a problem. Silicon Valley doesn’t house an abundant minority population. And to add insult to injury, many founders don't know how to pitch their idea.

That’s where the Interactive Business Pitch Weekend is stepping in to help. Checkout the video and more info on the Interactive Business Pitch Weekend.
