The Connect Invest Story

Connect Invest was created by a group of entrepreneurs who have been working in the real estate industry for decades. They understand the value and the importance of making real estate investments a part of a diversified investment portfolio. They’re also busy people who understand the desire to be in control and take an active role in decision making, but also want to be able to take a step back from hands on participation.  They want to invest when they have the time, not on an advisor’s nine-to-five schedule. When they see a need and an opportunity - they take it.

The opportunity came in the form of online social lending. The founders saw other companies trying to establish this model struggle to provide quality investments.  So in 2015, they created Connect Invest to turn that opportunity into a reality. Connect Invest is an Internet-based social lending platform that enables its investors to purchase Real Estate Secured Loan Payment Dependent Notes to fund real estate-related loans.

Connect Invest is able to draw upon established relationships with third-party companies to originate loans. Connect Invest will fund real estate loans made to third party borrowers originated by Ignite Funding, LLC, (“Ignite”) an affiliate of Connect Invest. Ignite Funding, which commenced operations in 1995, is a licensed mortgage broker. Since commencing its commercial funding operations, Ignite Funding has initiated the funding of over a 1,000 real estate-related loans with an aggregate principal amount of approximately $750 million.

With the founders united efforts, Connect Invest has streamlined the real estate investment process with their social lending platform, while also maintaining the high quality that should be provided when offering turnkey real estate investments to investors.
