Real Estate Crowdfunding Portal Raises Money Via Wefunder

Devin: What do you think of as your superpower?Eve: My superpower is when someone says “no” to me, that just makes me go harder. Seriously, I have incredible stick-to-it-iveness. My superpower is endurance.Eve Picker, CEO of the regulated real estate investment crowdfunding portal Small Change, has put the shoe on the other foot. She's raising money for Small Change on Wefunder. (Full disclosure: I've already committed funds to Small Change.)Meet Small Change“Small Change is a real estate crowdfunding portal, which means that we are registered with the SEC and members of FINRA, and we can use a pretty new securities rule called Regulation Crowdfunding, which permits anyone who's 18 and over to invest,” Eve says.“We focus on real estate projects with impact—with a mission,” she says. “Small change is amazing because we're tackling projects that I think will make cities better in so many different ways.”The impact goes beyond the obvious, she says:What I love about what we've done and what's happened over the last couple of years is that not only are we supporting projects in disinvested neighborhoods and building net zero buildings and things like that, but we have had a groundswell of emerging developers come to us, and at this point, we have almost 60 percent of our developers or issuers are minority and or women, which I think is staggering given the very old white boy club that the real estate industry is.The projects on Small Change are also profitable. “The projects that have gone full cycle that raise money with us have averaged about a 12 and a half percent internal rate of return, which is a great record,” Eve says.Raising Capital on WefunderIt seems odd for a company to raise capital with a business that could be considered a competitor. It feels a bit like a Chevy dealer selling brand-new Ford trucks.Eve explains the regulatory environment that requires this practice. “The reason we're raising money on Wefunder and not on our own platform is that under Regulation Crowdfunding, we can't have an interest in any project that is on our platform.”That prohibits a portal from offering shares on its owned portal. Small Change isn't the first, nor will it be the last, to raise money using a competitor's site.Unlike crowdfunding sites like GoFundMe that collect donations, or sites like Kickstarter and Indiegogo that pre-sell creative content and other innovations, regulated investment crowdfunding sites sell investments. Many structures are used, from debt to equity, with hybrid solutions like convertible debt being common. Simple Agreements for Future Equity are often used, too.Regardless of the instrument used, the entrepreneur or business raising money is issuing an instrument designed and intended to provide a financial return. Small Change Project ExampleSmall Change has hosted a variety of projects across the country since Eve launched the site. She shared a profile of a pair of developers in Oregon raising money on Small Change today.I hope some bankers are listening. We have two gentlemen who are black, who have purchased a building in Portland, Oregon. They are world-class artists. One of them works for a sports franchise and designs their uniforms and does other work. The other is an astounding photographer who has had clients like National Geographic and Fortune 500 companies.They decided that they wanted to create a creative hub in downtown Portland. With the help of a seasoned developer, they found a building and purchased it. The purpose of it is to create a meeting place for other people who look like them. They say they really have nowhere else to go, and they want to create a place where they can have gallery shows, where they can play music, where they can have rental studios for people so that there's a little hub of activity for people who— at the moment—don't have anywhere to congregate. What almost makes me want to cry is when they talk to me about how difficult it's been for them to find a bank loan. I don't want to believe it's racism. But on the other hand, I have to believe it's racism because they've been to a dozen banks with a very professional-looking business plan which had their images in it. Once they took the images out, the bank started talking to them.Eve's seen it before from her own experience as a developer before launching Small Change—providing some motivation for it.As a woman developer, I go back in my mind over my career, and what I encountered. No one ever said to me, “I'm not going to lend you the money because you're a woman.” But I am certain that I was stopped in many ways because I am a woman. And I'm certain that many minorities are treated the same way.Crowdfunding is different. By enabling people to raise money from their own community, underrepresented entrepreneurs see greater success. “Crowdfunding at least provides a place where people are thinking a little more equitably—a lot more equitably. Certainly, the statistics in Crowdfunding are quite different than in the VC world or the real estate world,” Eve says.Still, she points out, the crowdfunding space is a tiny part of new venture and real estate finance. That underlines the long-term potential for growth.In her work, Eve leverages her superpower of endurance.How to Develop Endurance As a SuperpowerEve is proving the power of endurance for both financial success and impact. She says, “I have developed very strong ideas about who I am and how I think the world should be, and it's very difficult for me to pull myself away from that. This is sort of part of my DNA.”“I dot my Is and cross my Ts,” Eve says. “So when I do a project like Small Change, I've thought it through.”She shared an experience from her time developing real estate to make the point.For example, I built a loft building in downtown Pittsburgh; it was actually the first loft in downtown Pittsburgh. At the time, I was really stunned when a banker told me, “Oh, honey, no one's going to live downtown.” I thought, “What have you been reading? This is not rocket science. All over the world, people are moving downtown.”I must have looked to him like a crazy person. To me, it seemed absolutely sensible. So, if someone says to me, “No, you can't do this,” and I've really thought it through, I'm going to dig in.That story highlights a critical insight for developing similar endurance. She says, “If I'd listened to all the no's, then none of this would have happened.” Regarding the naysayers, she says, “Another superpower I have is not listening to people, which some might think is bad, but I think is actually good.”In other words, her take on the old saying that “people who say it can't be done should stop interrupting those who are busy doing it” would be “people who are busy doing it should not be distracted by people saying it can't be done.”By following Eve's advice and example, you can develop endurance as a superpower, enabling you to do more good in the world.

Is it possible to be virtuous in a sea of corruption? Indian entrepreneur Rajah Koppala of Avis Vascular Centers is trying to do just that. Hear how he and his team are strategically and realistically fighting against the tide of corruption. And, gain insights from Saumitra Jha, an associate professor of political economy at Stanford Graduate School of Business, on what it takes to understand and navigate challenging ecosystems. Rajah Koppala trained and practiced medicine in the United States before returning to India in 2013 to create a chain of vascular surgical centers which he calls “mini hospitals within hospitals.” As chairman and managing director of Avis Vascular Centers, he had to learn a lot about operating, quite literally, in a very different ecosystem. In the healthcare industry, much of the corruption is rooted in immense amounts of regulation and red tape. For every license that's required, 23 in Koppala's case, there's an interaction with a public official, and therefore an opportunity for corruption. Koppala has decided that some things are negotiable and others aren't. In this moral gray area, he has had to acknowledge what's realistic for his business and has developed a set of consistent, intentional criteria to help him decide when he'll pay and when he won't. “You just have to understand corruption is not going to go away. This goes all the way up to the very top. Everybody has their own self-interest. And to a degree, when the legal system is a little weak, when the wages of a lot of these officers is very low to start with, headwinds make this happen,” Koppala explains.Saumitra Jha advises that there are certainly risks to giving bribes, even small ones, because once people become aware, he says, “They can ask for more and keep holding you up.” He advocates for strong, consistent leadership, making sure your employees are on board with “doing the right thing,” and finding partners in your industry to face obstacles together.“Oftentimes in economics, companies might be competing with each other in an industry, but at the political level, they have a lot in common. And so thinking about how to do things at an industry level can often be much more beneficial,” Jha explains.Rajah Koppala has also learned that relationships with public officials really matter. He encourages his team to have a cup of coffee and talk to the officials so they understand the gravity of the law that's being broken, while still treating them with dignity. “Relationships equal money,” he says. “When you want to pay less, maintain a relationship.”Listen to Koppala's first-hand experiences navigating corruption in India and Jha's strategies for surviving and thriving in these challenging and turbulent waters.Resources:Analyzing Political Risks in Developing Countries: A Practical Framework for Project Managers, by Saumitra JhaSee Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

Bribes, Kickbacks, “Commissions”—Oh My! Dealing with Corruption at Your Business

Grit & Growth

Corruption is an unfortunate fact of business life. How can you remain ethical and still survive when it seems that everyone else is playing the game? Soji Apampa is one entrepreneur who believes there are ways to strategically navigate a corrupt system. Hear how his NGO in Nigeria is helping entrepreneurs to keep their hands clean. And listen to true stories from business owners across Africa and South Asia about the real cost of corruption on lives and livelihoods.When it comes to dealing with corruption, you are definitely not alone. Which is a key reason why Soji Apampa created an NGO dedicated to the issue. In 1995 the Integrity Organization was born and later the Convention on Business Integrity for the sole purpose of dealing with the issue of corruption in Nigeria. The organization's early goal was simple according to Apampa: “We would like to be that matchstick that starts the bush fire. And even if the matchstick gets extinguished, so long as the fire spreads, we will have achieved something.” Twenty-five years later, they've achieved far more, studying corruption and explaining how it actually operates to help others avoid it — in Nigeria and beyond. “The reasons why people fall prey is, number one, they don't know the rules. So, you don't know the rules, you do the wrong thing, they just charge you. If you do the right thing in the first place, you can avoid those petty charges to start with,” Apampa suggests.Apampa encourages people to do the right thing from the start to avoid the “slippery slope” of corruption. “For many wise organizations, they just bite the bullet from the start and do the right thing, and they can avoid the bulk of it. But if you pay once, they keep coming. And imagine you do that with four or five agencies, then you're totally at their mercy,” he says.Unfortunately, the only way many small businesses can avoid corruption is to stay small and under the radar, but this ends up hampering their growth. So, one of Apampa's goals is to help educate people on how to be ethical within an unethical environment. Leadership, he believes, is the best place to start.“If you're trying to be ethical as a small business, it starts from the posture of the leader,” Apampa explains. “Everyone takes a cue from there. It's not enough for you as the chief executive to be a moral person or an ethical person if you cannot put in the systems for compliance to ensure that even those who want to act immorally or unethically cannot.”Apampa believes there can be upsides to operating ethically within a corrupt system. “The whole anti-corruption thing is not always all bad, because if you are trying to survive by doing it ethically, you have to be more innovative than those who are willing to do the bad things.”Listen to Apampa's advice on how to develop strategies and structures for avoiding or navigating corruption in your business environment.This episode is based on research and materials developed by Ken Shotts and Neil Malhotra.

Survival and Growth: Franchising in Africa

What are the obstacles and opportunities of franchising in Africa? While this business model is still in its infancy there, entrepreneurs like Grace Munyirwa of Vine Pharmaceuticals in Uganda are embracing it to grow and scale, while experiencing significant challenges along the way. Hear a story of struggle and success and gain insights from Chiagozie Nwizu, a franchise expert in Africa who has dedicated his career to educating entrepreneurs and investors on the power and pitfalls of the franchise model.Grace Munyirwa is a self-educated entrepreneur without any formal business training. But that didn't stop him from growing his pharmacy business to 36 shops across the African continent. Unfortunately, overexpansion, credit mismanagement, and success got the best of him. “We were walking on water and everything we were touching was turning to gold; pride got ahead of us. And so we opened locations that were not sustainable. We opened locations that were not supposed to open at all,” Munyirwa recounts.As a last-ditch effort to save Vine Pharmaceuticals, Munyira turned to franchising. While franchising is hugely popular around the world, in Africa it's still very early days, with little to no formal legal structures, franchise associations, training, or local history to build from. Chiagozie Nwizu is trying to close that knowledge gap.“For us to make progress with the franchise model in Nigeria, we will need to begin to have the smart franchiser and the smart investor — and being smart is being franchise-literate,” Nwizu explains.Munyira had to build his franchise model from scratch in Uganda, adapting it to meet his specific needs. One way he did that was by taking on more of the financial burden than is usual for a franchiser. Instead of asking his franchisees to pay rent on their stores, he kept that responsibility. And he had to carefully choose the type of franchisees he wanted to work with — people who already knew and cared about the culture vs. investors.“Sometimes people with money don't understand that you take a long time to make good money. They want to simply invest the money and maybe leave a son or the wife there and then expect this to grow. That couldn't work. So I chose not to go that route,” he explains.Nwizu calls Munyira's approach a micro franchising model which allows franchisees to slowly build their equity in the business. Supporting franchisees is another key element to success, according to Munyira. “The team at headquarters is really a support team. Their role is not just to drink pina coladas. Their role is to look out and see what can really help the shops perform better. When these shops win, we win,” he explains.Nwizu believes franchising is an important tool for the future of African business, where a high percentage of family-run businesses fail after the first generation. Franchising can change that. Munyira agrees. “What really, really hurts me, and that may be peculiar to this part of the world, is that many businesses die after the founder dies. I want to have a story that can really help the company survive way beyond its founder, that Vine is still existing way beyond my lifetime.”Listen to Munyira's first-hand experience with franchising and Nwizu's insights on what it takes to build a franchise model that works for your business.See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

Welcome to Grit & Growth's masterclass on the effectiveness of small business interventions in emerging markets — with hard data to back it up. Thanks to researcher Stephen J. Anderson's studies with African entrepreneurs, you'll hear why having a coach, getting classroom training, and learning how to delegate can drive growth and impact your bottom line.Stephen J. Anderson has spent his entire career trying to bring rigorous research to international development efforts, whether at the World Bank, Stanford Graduate School of Business, or his current post at McCombs School of Business at the University of Texas at Austin.Anderson makes his case for research on the effectiveness of growth interventions. He explains, “In the development sector someone says, “I have this great program,” and then they show you the best cases. But did this program or intervention really lead to that increase in firm sales and profits? I can't just cherry-pick or look at it anecdotally.”Top Six Masterclass Research-Based Takeaways Remote coaching works. The study of 930 Ugandan businesses proved that those companies that received coaching over six months increased sales, profits, and employment — by up to 50 percent!Coaching on your value proposition had the biggest effect. Anderson advises entrepreneurs to ask themselves, “What am I offering? Who am I offering it to? And why should they buy from me?” Think about your business model, think about the strategic shifts that you might have to make in the value proposition. Coaching or access to coaching can help you do that.In-person classroom training increases profits. The study of small firms in South Africa showed that those who received training — whether finance & accounting or marketing — increased profits by about 25 to 30 percent. Networking with other entrepreneurs enhances learning. “We're social beings,” explains Anderson, “and we still want to network. I learn a concept, I take it out to my business. I come back a week later and share what worked and what didn't work. I'm also going to hear from 10 or 15 other entrepreneurs. And so I'm going to learn the theory from whatever the instructor's telling me, but I'm also going to learn practically from others.” Entrepreneurs need to delegate to scale. Anderson's study of hundreds of businesses in Nigeria proved that to scale up, you need to let go. Anderson says, “Providing entrepreneurs with access to the expertise they need, that they can insource or outsource, grows the team, the managing team, and eventually grows the sales and profits of those firms.”Try not to hire family or friends. Anderson urges entrepreneurs to think hard before they hire and to look for ways to professionalize their workforce with the specific skills they really need to grow the business.Hear more about how Anderson's research can be the basis for more effective entrepreneurship programs across the world and apply his findings to your own entrepreneurial journey.Research Links:Pathways to Profits: the Impact of Marketing vs Finance Skills on Business Performance, by Stephen J.

When we talk about a startup successfully raising money after being part of a Techstars accelerator, that's not an unusual story. But did you know that only 0.3% of all venture capital funding goes to black women?For Deborah Gladney, co-founder and CEO of QuickHire, this was a reality every day as she and her sister built their company with not many connections, low-balled valuations, and many more roadblocks.“After we were able to successfully raise, what was so apparent was how rare it was because we didn't realize that we were actually the first black women in Kansas to even raise a million dollars or more in venture capital. It was 2021 and to be the first, that tells you the disparities that are apparent in the industry,” Deborah says.Listen as Deborah shares her experience as a black entrepreneur, how she utilized her advisors to advocate for her startup, and why representation is such an important area for both investors and startups.Also, don't miss Deborah talk about the 2021 Techstars Iowa Accelerator that she was a part of and how the Give First mantra has helped to remove opportunity barriers for others through QuickHire.Follow QuickHire on Twitter @getquickhireFollow David Cohen on Twitter @davidcohenListen & subscribe to the Give First podcast on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and more.
