Welcome, everyone, to another episode of Offshoot. Today, I have the pleasure of hosting Ben Miller, the Co-founder and CEO of Fundrise, on the podcast. Fundrise is a real estate, credit, and tech crowdfunding platform. It was founded in 2010 and launched in 2012, making it one of the pioneers in the crowdfunding space. Currently, Fundrise owns $7 billion worth of real estate and manages $3.3 billion in equity from over 400,000 investors and 2 million active users. Fundrise’s mission is to simplify and make the investment into alternative asset classes accessible and cost-effective for traditional, non-institutional investors.
