: 7 From @kishlb - Who Is #LynnP
Lynn is a serial #entrepreneur that founded my first company at 28, with the help of family and friends. In 2010, she established #BBE to pay it forward by providing education and funding for businesses. With #BuytheBlock, she has created the first #Blackowned #realestate #crowdinvesting platform enabling the #Blackcommunity to pool immense $1.3 Trillion in purchasing power to come together to make real estate and business development investments.
The first is access to capital for businesses and real estate development and the second is an investment platform with a low barrier to entry to facilitate the building of community equity and Black wealth at the same time. Buy The Block now serves investors and developers all over the US and is thrilled to be a part of the global crowd investing and alternative finance industry.By bringing investors together with entrepreneurs, we are not just building stronger communities; we are building wealthier districts. In that wealth lies the only real independence.
Buy The Block’s First Commercial Development (Link in BIO)
Lynn P is spearheading her next foray into the commercial real estate with a MAJOR move with #BuyBackTheBlock movement, which will consist of over 1000 individuals raising over $1 million to Buy The Block. As a result, the facility will become 100% owned by the community members who support it. Construction will begin in April 2018, with a $600 thousand renovation that includes 11 retail spaces, office space and apartments. The development plans to reopen in June 2019 as a retail building for the Dayton, Oh community.
Buy Back The Block and Stop #Gentrification
The vision we all share at Buy Back The Block is to change investing from confusing and frustrating, to an accessible and enjoyable social experience. This is not what is currently obtainable, and as such we want to create a new generation of connected investors who feel informed, empowered, and confident.
We believe the current options aren’t meeting the expectations of the next generation. We are developing an accessible, collaborative, friendly and fun investing environment for both new and experienced investors
