How the Pandemic Made Democratization Even More Important: A Fireside Chat with the CEO of GROUNDFLOOR
Democratization is a term that's thrown around a lot these days. But are platforms truly making themselves accessible so that everyone can participate? During the onset of the pandemic, we saw many platforms who cried "democratization" that effectively disallowed investors to even access their own money. And then, we all saw what happened with Robinhood. In this conversation with Brian Dally, the co-founder and CEO of GROUNDFLOOR, we'll discuss what democratization really means and how it has played out in the last year. Brian will share the thesis behind GROUNDFLOOR and how the company has remained true to its mission, even during the tumultuous last year. He'll also share detailed figures about his companies successes and how the audience can invest not just in real estate through its wealthtech platform, but also in its ongoing stock sale: https://www.seedinvest.com/groundfloor/series.b
