As the economy and the real estate investment climate has improved, financing has continued to be a challenge for all investors. This has resulted in many developers using alternative financing channels like CROWDFUNDING which has greatly increased in interest and growth. To meet the educational and networking needs of the real estate investment community regarding these newer methods of alternative financing IMN has constructed an agenda for the real estate developer who is looking to finance their projects, the CROWDFUNDING portal, as well as other the service providers in this marketplace.
